After the city of Columbia, New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell ‘surprised’ Jay-Z and Beyonce with “a key to the city” on Monday. According to the mayor’s Instagram post, the acknowledgment was “to highlight both his and Beyonce’s collective humanitarian work.”
The post shows the 4:44 rapper clad in a simple tee-shirt and jeans as he received the framed key from the mayor. He was also sporting a gold chain around his neck, his look complete with a maroon cap on backward.

When #OTRII came to @CityOfNOLA, I surprised Jay-Z with a Key to the City to highlight both his and @beyonce collective humanitarian work. The Carters recently launched scholarship funds that will benefit cities on their tour. The #CityOfYes embraces you both with love! 📸 @ravieb
This brings back memories of just last month, when the Mayor of the City of Columbia, Steve Benjamin, presented the rapper with the key to the city, apart from also naming August 21 as the Beyonce Knowles-Carter and Shawn Carter day in the city.
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s OTRII tour is scheduled to end the coming month on October 4.
