99 problems, but Glastonbury ain’t one…

The press has been having a field day recently about Jay-Z headlining Glastonbury. I’m watching his set on TV and it’s awesome. The guy is a genious and he’s got a huge field full of people eating out of his hand.

I find it pretty funny how they make a big deal about a rap act headlining, when Chemical Brothers or The Prodigy have been massive festival draws in the past.

The guy’s dropping hit after hit that I recognize from the UK charts, including his collaborations with Linkin Park. On top of that he’s rapping over samples from loads of famous songs by people such as Amy Winehouse, The Prodigy, Jackson Five, Punjabi MC, U2 and loads more. I doubt there is a person in the audience that’s not been able to hook into something. I think there will be a lot of people in record stores next week buying Jay-Z records because of this. One of them will probably be me.

You don’t need to be a rap fan to appreciate a guy at the top of his game. If booking Jay-Z was a disaster, Glastonbury needs a few more…

Cheers
