For all my non-Tidal subscribers, if you felt you have missed out Jay-Z’s Tidal B-Sides concert, hurt no more!
The almost nonstop two-hour show was definitely one for the books. Jay Z hit the crowd with a mixture of cuts, including “Dead Presidents Pt. 1”, “Young, Gifted and Black”, and “Intro” from The Dynasty: Roc La Familia. HOV also took aim at Tidal’s streaming music competitors during a freestyle, such as YouTube and Spotify.
“If I have one bit of advice for you tonight, it’s don’t ever go with the flow — be the flow,”
During the second half of the concert, a bit of a throwback reunion formed. Jay-Z brought out Roc Nation member Jay Electronica to perform “Exhibit C” and “We Made It Freestyle.” Then, Young Jeezy brought the party with “Go Crazy” and “Who Dat,” but what really sparked the interest of the fans in the crowd was when Jay-Z brought out Beanie Siegel along with Memphis Bleek, Young Gunz, and Freeway. The Roc crew performed “You, Me, Him, Her”, “What We Do” and their own version of “Clique”.
