Jay Z made history by taking Hip Hop to a cable network (Showtime) for the first time in history. The show started out quite good, despite the fact that the Mic wasn't sounding sharp, the Brooklyn rapper did his thing. Popular songs like "I just wanna Love u, unotuchable, Dream, Hard Knock Life etc, were performed. Damon Dash came dancing, R.O.C rappers helped out, Missy Elliot showed up with her summer banger "Work It", and M.O.P blessed it with their burner "Ante Up"..
The show started fading out, and Jigga couldn't resist to awaken the deceased legends. Biggie's pictures and song was displayed, which set the crowd on a screaming session, then numerous names like Big L, Aaliyah, Jam Master Jay, Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes were mentioned, and the crowd reacted warmly.
But nothing compared to the moment when the legendary rapper Tupac Shakur was mentioned. The crowd screamed on top of their voices, and you can feel the bumps running wild through every fan. 2Pac's pictures were displayed, and the Thug shrined single "Hail Mary" was echoed, and I witnessed the crowd became even more hyped. Before the lyrics to the song came on, the crowd started rhyming with Pac's lyrics "I ain't a killa, but don't push me/ Revenge's like the sweetest joy next to getting pussy/".. the crowd jumped to the lyrics on thehype, but Pac was still on the hook, while their sentiments gat them jumping and embracing the song. The tribute session was the most interesting and fun part of the concert, and you can see clearly that Pac stole the shit from the grave.
The session makes an anti Jay Z fan wanna embrace him, but he went back doing the bitten single "Bonie & Clyde"..
