Two of hip-hop’s biggest names, Jay Z and Kanye West, took their talents to the South By Southwest stage early Thursday morning. The duo gave a two hour set at the annual festival.
Kanye rocked his trademark leather kilt, while Jay Z wore his black American flag t-shirt. They performed a number of hits from their Watch the Throne album — “No Church in the Wild,” ”N*ggas in Paris,” ”Who Gon Stop Me” and “Otis”. Their set also included individual tracks with Ye performing “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves” from his latest album “Yeezus”, “Jesus Walks” and “Runaway.” Jay Z performed “Tom Ford”, “99 Problems,” ”Empire State of Mind,” ”Dirt Off Your Shoulder” and “Big Pimpin’.” Check out footage from their performance.
