  • Jay-Z
    Episode 1
    This performance featured Jay-Z as vocal performer and The Roots as music group with their common project A Tribe Called Quest to LL Cool J. Jay-Z relies in this performance on his album Blueprint, from with he performs six songs. He combines those with two songs from his debut album Reasonable Doubt. He also performs the song Ain't No (Nigga), but here without Foxy Brown. To make that up to his fans he performed Can't Knock the Hustle with Mary J. Blige. Not only Jay-Z performance is excellent, even if it's unfamiliar, the jazzy swing supports his strong voice. The same surprising effect on the sound got the Roots. They perform a perfect drum and beat sound.moreless
