(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — New York rappers Jay-Z and Nas buried the hatched and promoted peace on-stage during New York radio station Power 105.1’s Power House concert at New Jersey’s Continental Arena last night, October 27th.
As headliner of the event, Jay-Z had promised surprise guest performers and originally hyped the show as an “I Declare War” concert, though nothing of the kind happened during the three-hour, star-studded event. Throughout his performance, Jay-Z and company celebrated coming together and ending unnecessary conflict.
“This is for hip-hop,” the rapper said, according to Billboard. “We love y’all!”
Before performing “Dead Presidents” with Nas, Jay-Z hyped the crowd by stating that an earlier reunion between Sean “Diddy” Combs and estranged rapper the Lox, no known as D-Block, had motivated him. He shouted, “Let’s go Esco!” and Nas came out on stage to a deafening applause.
Afterwards, the two rappers stood side-by-side for nearly two minutes as the crowd cheered. Nas then performed a roughly 15-minute set. Kanye West, Diddy, and Jay-Z all joined Nas on stage to perform Jay-Z’s “Encore” to cap off the night.
Other guests at the show included T.I., Young Jeezy, Beanie Sigel and Akon. Newcomers Boyz N Da Hood, Teairra Mari and Ne-Yo also performed short sets. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
