Mac Miller was first up, joining Electronica for their Watching Movies with the Sound Off collaboration “Suplexes Inside of Complexes and Duplexes.” Forgetting the rest of his verse, Mac broke out an impromptu freestyle. J. Cole and Talib Kweli soon followed, performing with Jay Elec for the first-time as a trio, their Reflection Eternal collab “Just Begun.”
The best was saved for last as Brooklyn’s own Jay Z joined his fellow labelmate for a medley of songs including “Young Gifted & Black,” their “We Made It” freestyle, “Shiny Suit Theory,” and “P.S.A. (Public Service Announcement).”
