We told you yesterday about how [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Eminem[/lastfm] were ready to rock Yankee Stadium with [lastfm]B.o.B[/lastfm] along as the opening act. But what we didn’t tell you (and what we didn’t know!) was the guest list: [lastfm]Chris Martin[/lastfm] of [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm] , [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm], [lastfm]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm], [lastfm]Drake[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Beyonce[/lastfm] all made appearances too! But is that better or worse than what we got here in LA in March?
With all the guest stars in tow, [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm]’s set in New York last night involved a lot of collaborations: Kanye did “Good Life” and “Monster,” [lastfm]Chris Martin[/lastfm] sang a couple bars of “Viva La Vida,” and [lastfm]Beyonce[/lastfm] helped out on “Young Forever.”
In LA in March, Hova had a bit of guest help too, with [lastfm]Young Jeezy[/lastfm] taking on a mini-set and [lastfm]Ice Cube [/lastfm]reminding everyone which coast Jay was on. But beyond that, it was pure, uncut Hova, ripping through his hits from today and from his back catalog (which, lest we forget, goes back almost 15 years now).
We love [lastfm]Drake[/lastfm], Yeezy, [lastfm]Beyonce[/lastfm], et al. But we really love [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm]. Which would you rather have:
