Jay-Z performed an intimate concert B-Sides 2 show on Friday night at New York City’s Webster Hall. Jay brought along veteran rappers Cam’Ron, Nas, and Jim Jones to the stage to assist in several songs. The performance was a follow-up to his 2015 show, B-Sides, which was dedicated to deep cuts and old hits.
Nas joined Jay-Z on the stage to perform their collaborative song “Success” from the latter’s American Gangster. The duo also performed Nas’s “The World Is Yours” and Jay-Z’s “Dead Presidents,” which samples from Nas’ song. The rappers then broke into a version of the hit song “N.Y. State of Mind.”
Cam’ron arrived on the stage to perform their song “Welcome to New York City” and Jim Jones also made an appearance for a special rendition of “I Really Mean It.”
Jay Z also made a shout-out to the late rapper Nipsey Hussle during the show, in the form of a live freestyle.
