Rapper dedicates song to Def Jam boss
The show took place at Westminster Central Hall and was attended by around 500 fans and invited guests, as the rapper-producer celebrated bagging the UK Number One spot with new single ‘Stronger’ at the weekend (August 19).
West dedicated new song ’Big Brother’ to Jay-Z, and said that he said that was the reason he made music and because of this he was able to buy him mum a house.
Before the gig, which followed sets at this weekend’s V Festival, guests were greeted by staff wearing graduation outfits and mortar boards, in reference to the name of his new album ’Graduation’.
West was backed by an all-female string section, backing vocalists, keyboardist and DJ.
During closer ’Touch The Sky’ ticker tape fell from the ceiling.
