Jay-Z SNL Performance

[vodpod id=Video.3576892&w=425&h=350&fv=]

For his opening set, Hov did a medley of bangers. Guess someone’s gearing up for their Hits album. Ha!

UPDATE: Mr. Hudson flew over for a short version of “Young Forever”. Dedicated to Betty White.

    HE LIP SYNC TOO

    DEAR EMINEM IF YOU READ THIS GET BACK ON THE DRUGS PLEASE NERVOUS FELLO

    HA!

  • Ac@pella!

    Dope. That jacket was dope. Performance was dope. Jay was dope. Bridgette Kelly’s fine ass was dope. Betty White was dope. Whole SNL episode was dope. DOPE!

  • Tee-ron-toe

    What an epic SNL. Even brought back some all star casts. Jigga…..is there even anything to say?!

  • DJ NITTI

    That’s how you do it! All rappers take note.

  • blaqscorpio

    HOV!!! That medley was HOT!

  • King JuggaNott

    Jay-Zs catalog shits on any artist in hip hop history period. I’m sorry……that’s my opinion. Putting his shit on shuffle in itunes is like what was what in Hip Hop since he has been in the game. How can he NOT be the G.O.A.T. ? I mean seriously.

  • blaqscorpio

    Yeah, his catalogue is CRAZY AND UNMATCHED!

  • ThugMagnificent

    good show. disappointed that Jay wasn’t in a skit with Betty “88 & 1/2″ White tho.

  • Smh

    OMFG, Stop bringing up EM in every post, this post is about JayZ damn,
    SN: I marked my calendar to see this performance, didn’t disappoint either

  • mmkayy

    dopeeee.. dunno why some ppl hate on Jay’s performances but i just gotta sayyy wtf is up with the leather vest str8 from kanye’s closet ?

  • Theloneus

    I’m also worried about Em’s lip syncing during live performances. On the other hand, Jay also sounds horrible live now. Did you see his New Year’s performance with Rihanna? Terrible.

  • theehater

    jay is jay, superstar status. hes got hits so it doesnt really matter to anyone that his stage performances are stiff (pause) he just shuffles around like a cardboard cutout of himself on wheels

  • YN F. Jay-Z, please said the baby

    He looks homo as hell. This bitch nigga is a very bad performer.

  • flawda

    You can tell the idiots who have never been to a Jay-z, talking about stiff.

  • Dizzy3413

    Shit was dope, no doubt. But why in the world didn’t he change the hook to: “I got 88 problems, Betty White ain’t one!” ha. Better than the half ass censorship job he tried doing.

  • http://www.thetruthrenaissance.wordpress.com BE

    Great performance Jay. One of the best to ever do it.

    SNL was great too! Good job Betty.

  • Hah.

    I bet that nigga hit that shit.

  • Hah.

    Not that it matters. What I Said Eminem has been on and performed on SNL plenty of times.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Yall niggaz talkin about his performance was special ???? all rappers take note … WTF? all he did was rap his song and move back and forth ….let Gucci Mane do the same shit and u niggaz would say it was wack …….yall call dis a good performance ??? name one highlight ?

  • jenny

    wtf are ya’ll talking about eminem ain’t lip synching

  • Lastonesleft

    @So Icy Boi!
    Gucci Mane is one of the worst rapper ever. He is not real hip hop.

    The South Is Killing Hip Hop

  • az5lyrics

    HOV THE G.O.A.T.
    GREAT PERFORMANCE
    GREATEST CATALOQUE EVER
    BRIDGET KELLY IS ALSO FINE AS HELL

  • blaqscorpio

    Lol, Hi Haters!

    HOV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those talking about Jay’s performance, has NEVER been to a Jay concert. Go read his concert reviews, your favorite WISH he could get some of those. Stiff?! LMFAO!

  • flawda

    If Gucci would of perform, there would of been thirty dirty looking niggas on the stage with him and you would not understand a word out his mouth

  • strapp3r

    the man has a flat-out ENORMOUS ego.
    amazing how much he raps about himself.
    BK’s vocals were the highlight of the first set.

  • DARKAQUA

    MY INTERNET BABY DADDY GURU ON THE 1 AND 2

  • http://nahright.com nahright

    too many eminem stans on rapradar

  • http:/sporthop.wordpress.com Lil’ Nello

    What more can be said that hasn’t already the performances where both pretty dope! Not to mention they show nobody really messing with Jay’s catalogue of hits! Bridgette Kelly is pretty damn fine & a dope singer to! Me like I’m sure most noticed how fine she was to ever since Jay had her rocking with her but just never really mentioned it till now!

  • Word Up

    @ so icy Bitch

    Fuck gucci,

    nigga is irrelevant on a Jay-Z post

  • Willie mcfly22

    He went in on that one. Always has a dope performance! Betty White was crackin me up too!

  • JustSaying

    Great performace Man that shit was pretty special, I can’t front.

    Mannn I never understood how someone could be so celebrated for promoting drug sales and consumerism while Lupe Fiasco can barely go platinum. MFs will do anything for a hot beat and some cheap wordplay huh? smh

  • theehater

    ANYONE thinking this performance was not stiff has never seen a real performer rock a crowd, they dont just take three steps forward, three steps back, three steps forward then repeat. this is not hate, this is just what is happening on screen, catchin-feelin’-ass ninjas (II) HOWEVER the music, as always, is top notch.

  • JIGGA

    F*%3 Jay!!
    Ohhhhhhhhh, Alcia, I couldnt help wondering how good it would be to be the that black dress all over your body.
    Ummmmm, I got it bad for this chick.

    ^^^^^^^^^ ur proly a closet hater but thats Jay real gift & curse….he has ALWAYS< ALWAYS, ALWAYS raos about himself…from day one…the gift is if u come from where he come from so u understand…the curse is when he was rapping bout him being hood we can relate, now he talking bout boats, planes, and maybachs a hater dont wanna hear that so he has an ENORMOUS EGO but he's just rappin about himself as ALWAYS….its really nothing jay aint made reference to in everyday life…the wordplay is complexed and clever but the subject matter NEVER IS…thats why a nigga will go and say NAS is better than Jay cuz he rap about some shit u gotta go research…Jay raps circle around ALL these niggas…song 4 song its not even a comparison as to who is the GOAT

  • The Truth83

    im confused, what do people expect jay to do on stage?

    Crip walk? have background dancers and go into a synchronization of a dance number with them?

    perhaps when he was doing PSA to have actual dice on him and throw them into the audience?

    perhaps more hand gestures and instead of taking two steps forward, back or to the side, he should’ve skipped from side to side?

  • NEGRITO

    LMAO @ THE TRUTH COMMENT.

    anyways haters i was viewing jigga on youtube and watching his crazy old videos…. ay been in the game since 89, thats a long time and in some videos he was doing semi- big things and always on some grown man shit. i might give Jay the goat plaque cuz he never fell off.

    OH FUCK EMINEM!!!!
