After signing a major film and TV deal with the Weinstein Company, Jay Z has announced that he is producing a documentary about the life of Richard Pryor, who was one of the most influential comedians of all time. Hov's new deal was formed in order to "tell stories from real-life prophets," and Jay himself stated that "there's nothing more commercial than Richard Pryor. His story is an American story."

He's also the executive producer of TIME: The Kalief Browder Story, which is a forthcoming TV series about the young black man who was imprisoned on Riker's Island for three years without a trial. He later killed himself. Congrats to Jay for doing good work.
