Jay-Z concert, free!!

New York City is so awesome sometimes it's hard to believe I get to live here. This Saturday while finishing up a lovely, leisurely brunch Jonah got an email saying Jay-Z was about to give a concert on the pier at 13th Street. We walked over there and because Jay-Z's on tour promoting his new album Kingdom Come, people got in for free (your price of admission was being bombarded by aggressive and ubiquitous brand marketing). The next thing you knew we were waiting for Jay-Z to come on stage. I love Jay-Z (not as much as the girl 10 feet behind us standing on a platform screaming and crying that she loved Jay-Z) and I love outdoor concerts (even if it wasn't the warmest day) so I was very happy. After the concert, still unable to wipe the grin off my face nor quell the excited squeals, "I can't believe we just got to see Jay-Z!!", we poured out with the concert crowd into the meatpacking district where we discovered we were in the middle of a movie set. Judging by the crashed bus and blown up cabs, it was either that Will Smith movie or Speed 5.

Only in New York City. I love you New York City! I love you Jay-Z!

Diamonds in the sky!

There's my boy! He was wearing a dope white jacket with safety pin emblems all over it.

saddened to say that i have the new album as well, and its not all that its hyped out to be, except for two tracks, sorry to say Andrea, as much as you love the ROC this one will just have to slide as his transitional album of getting back into the game.

AH- (according to Hollywood Rag) FYI: "Rapper Jay-Z has celebrated his musical comeback with seven concerts across
the US in 24 hours.

The 36-year-old hip-hop star performed the series of 30-minute concerts in
Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles before
finishing his whistle-stop tour in Las Vegas yesterday morning (11.19.06).

Jay-Z - real name Shawn Carter - used a private jet to fly to each city,
where he played to thousands of fans in a variety of venues including clubs,
a pier and Washington's Howard University."
