Jay-Z Honors MJ, Disses Dash, Game During Vegas Show

Jay-Z knows how to multitask. The hip-hop icon took a moment during his recent show to honor the King of Pop and take a verbal swipe at Damon Dash, The Game and Jim Jones.

The Brooklyn-bred emcee played a video-enhanced rendition of Jackson’s ‘I Want You Back’ when 10-city tour hit Las Vegas this past weekend. While honoring the late pop icon, Jay told the crowd to live life to the fullest, stating “you gotta’ maximize it.”

He then went on to add a freestyle to his current ‘D.O.A.’ single calling out former business partner Dash, among others. “I ain’t talking about gossip/I ain’t talking about Game/I ain’t talking about Jimmy/I ain’t talking about Dame,” he rhymed. “Lets talk about facts/Dame made millions, even Jaz made some scraps/He could’ve made more but he ain’t sign his contract.”

While Dash and Jaz have yet to respond to the mention, Game took to Twitter to figure out if he was actually being insulted my Hova. “Aight so, after about 10,000 responses … The results read that he ain’t dissin me,” Game Tweeted. “And as bad as I want to respond to his old a–, he can slide.” Turns out Game changed his mind. The rapper is seen calling out Jay onstage at a concert in France in a video circulating around the ‘net.

Jay also treated fans to a performance of ‘Swagga Like Us,’ ‘Can I Get A,’ and ’99 Problems,’ calling on the assistance of Cleveland Cavaliers guard LeBron James for the latter.

The tour, which features singer Ciara, will head back to the East Coast later this week, hitting Connecticut on July 10 and Atlanta on July 12.
