Jay-Z wore his own No. 4 Nets jersey for his sold-out concerts at the brand-new Barclays Center.

Later this month, you can rock one of the 10 limited-edition jerseys he wore during his performances.

From Oct. 17-31, they will be auctioned off at Auctions.NBA.com, with the proceeds benefiting the Shawn Carter Foundation and the advancement of the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.

Jay-Z's mission through his foundation is to help individuals facing socioeconomic hardships further their education at institutions of higher learning. Since 2003, it has distributed more than $1.4 million in scholarship money to help people attend college.
