Jay-Z to Rap With Charles
- Royal seal of approval ahead of Urban Music festival

PRINCE CHARLES is to meet Jay-Z in person before the pair gear up for this weekend's Urban Music Festival.

The meeting between the Prince and the Rapper takes place at the University of Westminster where they will see the work of young hip-hip artists who are on a course that is part of a police effort to beat gun crime.

Other music luminaries due at the university include Russell Simmons, the rap music businessman credited by many as the man who sold urban music to the mainstream, singer Lemar and DJ Trevor Nelson.

The Urban Music festival itself takes place on Saturday and Sunday at Earl's
Court and is to include megastar Beyonce - JayZ's girlfriend - on the bill.
