Jay-Z To Oasis: “Are Your Songs ‘Appropriate’ Glastonbury Material? Just Checking”

After months of buildup, Jay-Z played his much-discussed headlining set at the Glastonbury Festival last night, and he opened it with a special dedication to Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, who had said that Jay was an inappropriate addition to the Glasto bill because it was “built on a tradition of guitar music.” Jay strolled out with a guitar, strumming and warbling along to “Wonderwall,” last-call-on-a-long-night-style, before breaking into “99 Problems.” I think this is a way to tell Gallagher “your move,” although I shudder to think what an Oasis cover of “Big Pimpin'” might sound like. (There’s a download of his full set from last night here.) [YouTube / HipHopIsRead via madeupmemories]
