DJ Green Lantern provides great audio from Jay-Z’s 2006 concert in London. The first link starts with Jay doing “Where I’m From” and goes to the line, “Who’s the greatest MC, Biggie Jay-Z or—” but before he says “Nas,” the man himself comes out amid a surge of excitement from the audience and launches into “Made You Look.” His entire set lasts 14 minutes.
The second link is Jay-Z and Nas performing “Dead Presidents” with Chris Martin of Coldplay on the piano. Instead of Jay’s third verse, Nas does the first verse from “The World is Yours.” And the third is “Heart of the City,” once again assisted by Chris Martin.
Listening to “Where I’m From” and “Dead Presidents” reminds me how Jay used to rip shit.
