Jay Z is expanding the Carter empire with a new project to air on National geographic called “Race.”

According to Variety, the series will be six episodes long and will look into the systematic racial injustices in the United States with particular attention in the criminal justice system, wealth inequality, social media, activism, and family. It will combine historical footage with new interviews with individuals across the nation. The docuseries is produced in collaboration with The Weinstein Company.

Weinstein and Jay are also working together on a fictionalized version of Trayvon Martin’s shooting. After securing Martin’s life rights, the two met with Trayvon’s parents and promised them he would not let them down.

In addition to his growing producing credits, Jay Z has maintained his rapping career, grown a family with Beyonce, launched a line of cigars, acquired music service Tidal, launched his own sports agency Roc Nation Sports, published a memoir, and more.

Long live the Carter empire!
