Jay Z forgets lyrics to 2 songs; Gets mixed reviews ( Should he Retire ? )
 

 
Aging rapper Jay Z, who turns 43 on Dec. 4, fumbled the lyrics to two of his best-known songs during a one-man set Monday night, according to Yahoo Music. Jay Z’s live performance at the Amex Sync Show, which was live streamed from the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, was met with mixed reviews.
“The concert’s first half gave the impression of a man performing for a corporate-sponsored promo event. This was not the rapper’s finest 90 minutes,” wrote a The Guardian reporter, who watched the show online.
The Huffington Post noted that Jay Z forgot the lyrics to two of his songs, “Jigga What, Jigga Who” and his Grammy award winning “Empire State Of Mind.”

I have a friend who went to a Nas show like 5 years back and during "One Mic" he dropped to his knees and mumbled an entire verse incoherantly...

My man was pissed.

I heard Nas was the worst live performer ever. And I'll give Jay two more years. He needs to put the mic down after that. Not before I get to see a Jay concert tho. I'm like the only Jay fan that hasn't been to a one of his concerts. I hear it's magical.

Nas is not that bad, but Ive seen many better live performers. The thing about Nas is he's always out of breath halfway through a verse. Dude needs a solid backup performer.

Every rapper I have seen live forgets some of the lyrics, throughout a song or two, even singers forget their lyrics during their shows. Didn't those fans at that show get to go for free anyways? the fu*k are they complaining for.
