Exclusive: Jay-Z at the DJ Hero/Myspace show, “The best way to silence all critics…” (plus Hov on Letterman)Posted by Miss Info under beef , concerts , exclusives , laugh with , new music , quotes , things I like , videos
Tonite, the good folks at Activision and Myspace put together a last minute Jay-Z concert to celebrate Blueprint 3 and the upcoming DJ Hero videogame. Fans lined up in front of the Blender Theater on Tuesday night and waited ’til morning to snag free passes to the intimate show…
Hov brought out a full band, DJ Neil Armstrong, and his trusty hypeman Memph Bleek to run through both new songs, like “Run This Town,” “Hate,” etc…and the classics, like “99 Problems,” and “Encore,” and more.
In the above clip, Jay performs “Death of Autotune,” with extra emphasis on the last line, lol, and then the crowd starts chanting “F–k T-Pain,” to which Jay replied, “Y’all ready for that Blueprint 3? I just figure that’s the best way to silence all critics, just keep hitting with s–t like this…”
(Thanks to Aaron from Activision)
(lol @ Jay saying “Oh, y’all got the bootleg,” during “Hate”)
BONUS: earlier in the day, Jay-Z sat down with David Letterman…and was positively chipper.
