JAY-Z Performs ‘Bam’ and ‘4:44′ on ‘SNL’ Premiere [VIDEO]
JAY-Z rocked the 43rd season premiere of Saturday Night Live over the weekend. The Roc Nation mogul performed “Bam” and “4:44” from his celebrated album, 4:44, in his first televised performance this year.
Wearing a custom-designed Colin Kaepernick jersey that featured “Colin K” and the number “7” on the back, Hov brought out Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley to perform his braggadocios banger, “Bam.” JAY delivered his bravado rhymes, while Damian delivered his raggamuffin flow under red lights and a camouflage backdrop.
For his second performance, JAY-Z stripped everything down and just allowed three huge spotlights to shine on the center stage. Donning a Roc Nation snapback hat, Puma sneakers and a white T-shirt, Hov hugged the mic while performing his confessional song, "4:44."
JAY-Z's SNL performance sets up his highly anticipated "4:44 Tour," which is set to launch on Oct. 27 in Anaheim, Calif. Roc Nation artist Vic Mensa will join Hov on the North American trek. To peep his full tour itinerary, click here.
