  • you know there’s gonna be a lot of special guests. Tickets are probably going to be an arm and a leg so enjoy the show for the limited amount of regular people that get tickets.

    Yo, if he performs “Where I’m From” at fucking CARNEGIE HALL… That shit will be EPIC!

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    Rap Radar need to do there fucking research before they post shit. If yall niggas was real hip-hop fans you would know Mos Def and Jay Electronica had the hip-hop show at Carnegie Hall in 2008. Also weak Doug E. Fresh, The Roots, & weak ass MC lyte dis a show there in 2009. Its a good look but sorry Hov your late on making history this time.

    HOV be plotting on B.Dot. he better be watching for that big Russian he be rolling with.

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    So S/O to Mos Def for being the FIRST hip-hop artist to headline Carnigue Hall. Also everybody made a big deal back in 2003 when Jay-Z did a concert at Madison Square Garden when Run DMC the FIRST hip-hop act to headline Madison Square Garden backin 1986. Hov get credit for too much shit. But he a legend so it whatever. Congrats.

    @RICKY RETARDO You Right. Afrika Bambaata and Grandmaster Melle Mel was the first offical hip-hop artist to perform at Carneguie Hall in 1985. That was b4 my time. But thats what I’m saying if the first hip-hop act to peform there was 26 years ago why is Jay-Z making headline as the first. Next there gonna say Jay-Z created hip-hop.

    Who cares, Jay is performing, and that’s what this post is about.

    You guys do anything to discredit the man, we appreciate your history lesson, class dismissed

  • SwagTag2K11

    Like I really like this site… I really do.. My only issue is E-DUB/YN finding new ways to guzzle Jay-Z. The shit is disgusting man.

  • Coops

  • Brooklyn

    Big Homie is a bitch for deleting comment because he did(kt know his hip-hop history. Leave it to B. Dot to handle the post for now on.

  • Donn

    @The Truth

    Why do you haters assume who everybody likes just to come at them lol. I have Nas, Eminem, Talib Kweli, KRS One in my iPod next to Wiz, Wayne, Drake, etc. Stop reaching.

    Epic Fail on Jay-Z part. He always thinks he is the pioneer of shit and young niggas that don’t any better will believe it. I challenge Jay-Z to make his next album with out any concepts and production from Kanye and No I.D. He need worship Kanye because he keeping him relevant.

  • Vee

    I dont see HOV saying he is the first to perform there, and I am glad its for a good cause… thanks HOv
