We had a whole lot of superstars on this stage here tonight. But this is… Papoose's house? We're all still reeling that the 20th anniversary of Hip-Hop's Super Bowl featured the Nacirema Dream as a headliner. Damn you Kendrick Lamar and your generous ways. Yeah it's hip-hop to bum rush the show but c'mon Pap you know you didn't deserve that look. And you gave even less fucks by performing a new song. C'mon fam. You've paid a lot of dues through the years but this was the big dawg time in the program. Don't disrespect the game in your pursuit for fame. Oh well, Brooklyn took it.

Jay-Z tells theL.A. Times that DMX forced him to step his show game up. Back in 1998, the tandem co-headlined the Hard Knock Life Tour. Next Friday, Jigga will become the first rapper to close out the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California.
“All my early years? Forget it. I was a horrible performer. DMX tore me to pieces. I remember being stunned…He had me really working. But I had to figure this out. If you want to be a headliner, you better put on a headline show.”
