Jetsetting Jay-Z Victory Dances All Over Philly Fans at City Hall

I didn’t go to the Yankees parade today, because as much of a fan as I am, the kind that go to parades are the kind of sports fans I try to avoid in general: people who can get out of work on a Friday and be shitfaced before I even wake up. Well, these were the people who got to watch Yankee mascot Jay-Z perform “Empire State of Mind” for Mayor Bloomberg, the World Series-winning Yankees, and the thousands of drunk people who descended on downtown New York, from the Battery to City Hall, to scream at their favorite team, centaurs and all. Video after the jump. The image of Jay-Z rapping in front of City Hall? Priceless.

Rap Radar correctly understands that Hova was in Germany last night, and flew into New York today just to do this performance with songstress Bridgette Kelly. He has to be in Fresno tomorrow night. But really, like Jay-Z was gonna pass up the chance to play City Hall. The Phillies get this guy, and we get Jay-Z. Fair trade, I’d say.
