Hov & The Yankees Do The Championship Parade

Jay-Z joined the Yankees during their Championship parade this afternoon through the streets of New York.  He hopped on a plane straight from Berlin last night to make it in time to kick it with Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, and all the other players:

Fun times.



And of course, he and an Alicia Keys stand-in performed the new NYC anthem.  Check it.

nelle32: MEMO TO JAY-Z…….IF

nelle32: MEMO TO JAY-Z…….IF A.KEYS CANT MAKE IT…THEN DO ANOTHER SONG…THAT WAS VERY DISRESPECTFUL…TO HAVE A SINGER WHO CANT SING MIMIC ALICIA KEYS..THATS LIKE HAVE BRITNEY SPEARS DO A WHITNEY SONG” I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU”…SHE WAS HORRIBLE..OFF TUNE…SHE HAD NO SWAG…JUST TERRIBLE PLUS SHE AINT FROM N.Y GOD DAMMNIT I don't know what you were hearing. Everytime I hear Alicia Keys do it live she sounds like she's straining. This chic held every refrain beautifully. I thought she brought a real richness to it, NOT trying to sing it just liek Alicia.

kandi: Sorry but I cant

kandi: Sorry but I cant stand Jayz……I have yet to see him go back to his old neighbor to give back, build houses, donate to schools..etc. He just seems so vain & selfish, as does Bey. Its always something that has to do with athletes, endorsements or up & coming artist that can give him any xtra shine. $$$ equates power, but it can get u into Heaven! i think he does give back....he probably just isnt one of the celebrities that do it for good publicity that want to be praised for every good deed

Black people are like crabs

Black people are like crabs in a barrell, they never want to see another black man succeed. They always hating for no reason. "Oh im tired of Jay-Z" "OMG how much $$ do they need" "omg he's old as hell" Get a fucking life, if he wants to thow up the roc and party with the Yankees and NOT HAVE KIDS WITH HIS WIFE, that's non of your business. HATERS. Jay-Z' song is the New Anthem of NEW YORK, hate it or love it that wont change because a bunch of randoms on the internet says so.

the first time I heard this song was when Jay and Bridget Kelly were on Jonathan Ross here in the UK and she sang brilliantly. She made me like the song and I prefer her on the song to Alicia who sometimes sounds like she is shouting

Yas - DECEMBER 8th GRAFFITI: A-Rod needs to put that Roc back in his pocket.. old men throwing up signs is LAME! exactly. im tired of seeing that sign. what does it even mean
No Class's picture

I remember what the women

I remember what the women speaker said at my college graduation and I will say it now... people will have you on a time schedule, when to have kids, when to get married, etc. Remember your life is yours not anyone else and do things when your ready not when everyone else is ready. Now I see what she means....
keepin it real's picture

Why on earth should these ppl

Why on earth should these ppl have kids? They are touring and in diff countries every 5 sec. I respect that they want to wait until they can settle down before having a family. Some other ppl need to take note about how to properly prepare for a child...instead saying "oops"
keepin it real's picture

Jigga and Bey are really

Jigga and Bey are really conquering any and everything relevant as Black Artists and we all should really support them! They are doing BIG THINGS!! Imagine how big this song would have been if Bey was on it!SMH I mean it wouldn't make sense since she's from Houston, but that would have taken the song to another level.
