HOVA puts his spin on Drake’s hometown anthem.
Jay-Z’s 4:44 tour has been one of his best tours to date. From the stage set up to the moments he’s delivered while on stage, Jay’s really brought his live performance to another height with this one. The rapper recently made his stops in Canada and because of the demand for the show, he scheduled two dates in Toronto. We reported yesterday that he rocked out to Drake’s “KMT” during the first night in Toronto, even spitting a few of his own bars to the track. Last night, he performed for the second night in Toronto and of course, he put his spin on another Drake joint.
During last night’s Toronto date, Jay-Z mashed up his verse from “Jigga What” over Drake’s “Know Yourself.” The short clip that surfaced sounds incredible and is also a testament to Jay being a master of flow. Truth be told, it would’ve been cool if Drake had a remix with Jay on it around the time that it dropped but regardless, we’re blessed to atleast be able to hear Hov do one of his most notable verses over one of Drake’s best songs. It was also reported that Drake was actually in the crowd as well. Drake has previously been vocal for his appreciation for Hov’s work, we’re sure that moment is something that stood out to him this year.

Aside from his stints in Toronto, his 4:44 tour has been making headlines for various other reasons. He’s spoke about the NFL Protests as well as Meek Mill’s prison sentence. However, he also took the time to make a few jokes on the way. In Cleveland, he took a moment to address Lebron’s “King Of New York” claim by announcing that he’s now the “King Of Cleveland.”
In other Jay-Z related news, the rapper just dropped off three more videos off of 4:44 today with “Smile,” “Legacy” and “Marcy Me.” With those, he’s already dropped off videos for nine out of the twelve songs on the project. Hopefully, the last three videos drop before the holidays.
