Jay Z at Glastonbury Festival 2008, UK

Jay Z caught some flack when it was announced he’d headline the Glastonbury Festival 2008 in the UK. Oasis member Noel Gallagher wasn’t pleased a hip hop act would be added to the historically rock-oriented festival.

“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” he said. “If you start to break it then people aren’t going to go. I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance.

“Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go ‘Kylie Minogue?’ I don’t know about it. But I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It’s wrong.”

So, naturally Jay Z kicks off his set at Glastonbury by covering Oasis’ “Wonderwall” before launching into “99 Problems.”

    Nice! Normally I have zero respect for today’s hip hop “stars”. They’re too busy trying to keep their pants up to make decent hip hop. However, this was darn funny. Too bad he can’t really sing. That would have put it over the top.
