Listen to Radio Show: Full show with Jay-Z vs Original Samples Tribute Mix and More

It is debatable whether he is the best to ever do it, but he has definitely been consistent and outlasted many of his peers. He has come a long way from crack cocaine raps to becoming a respectable member of the establishment rubbing shoulders with dignitaries such as Prince Charles and President Obama. In my opinion a key part of his success has been a good ear for hip hop production. With so many hits and so many sweet as soul samples, Naiki’s tribute mashing up Jay-Z classics and the original samples was as killer as predicted.

Photos: Wu-Tang Clan live at the Enmore Theatre


It is funny when the hip hop show descends into a not so private party on stage, which u had the misfortune of witnessing. A bunch of girls dancing badly with old men. Hurry up and end it please, so that we can all go home.

All and all though, it was a good show. On a Thursday evening at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney, the Wu-Tang formed together like Voltron, they just happened to be missing an arm and a leg. Though even with Rza, Meth and ODB absent, the Wu is still a force to be reckoned with. Ghostface alone has the force of 100 emcees when he explodes on the microphone. Plus it’s hard to go wrong with classic tracks for days.

Young Dirty Bastard though? I am just not sure. I understand he is carrying on the legacy, but it just seems a little funny making a career impersonating your father.

Jay-Z and Kanye West Lolling Outta Control
I love the line… “I made Jesus Walks I’m never going to hell”. Ah… sorry Kanye. I’m not a religious man, but I am pretty sure it doesn’t work like that. Make a song about Jesus and then you get a green light from the authorities in heaven to engage in whatever debauchery tickles your fancy.
