50 Cent, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, Diddy & T.I. Perform Together At Screamfest Tour

screamfest.jpgWho says New York hip-hop is lacking unity? On Wednesday night (August 22), 50 Cent, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, Diddy and T.I. all appeared on stage together in Madison Square Garden for the 2007 Screamfest tour. According to MTV News, T.I., who headlines Screamfest with Ciara, orchestrated the historic moment, as fans were stunned to see six of the biggest names in hip-hop on the same stage. 50 Cent was the first artist to make a “surprise” appearance on stage, performing “Can’t Leave Him Alone” with his rumored girlfriend, Ciara. Afterwards, Fif brought out his G-Unit soldiers — Lloyd Banks, Mobb Deep and Tony Yayo — for an impromptu performance of his smash hit, “I Get Money.” But that was only the start of a historic night. During T.I.’s set, the King of the South called out Jay-Z to perform their collaborative song off T.I. vs. T.I.P., “Watch What You Say.” If that wasn’t enough, Hov then ushered in Kanye West, who performed his new single, “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.” That’s when things really started to get interesting. During ‘Ye’s performance, 50 Cent ran on stage to join Jay, T.I. and Kanye. Then, out of nowhere, Diddy made an entrance and joined the group. With everyone on stage, Jay-Z then performed “Encore,” which prompted Swizz Beatz and Clara to join in on the fun. Swizzy, not wanting to feel lost in the shuffle, also performed his single, “Money in the Bank.” As the show ended, T.I. ran through more of his hits — “What You Know?” and “Big Things Poppin’” — as Screamfest ended with a bang.

    Let me say…These other regions dont even want NY to be united becuase the game will be a wrap! If NY artist rocked together they would shut this rap shit down and bring it back where it needs to be…. Dont get it twisted i Like the south…bottom line is…this beef shit is played out…lets make some hot tracks!

    “During the second half of Ciara’s set, 50 Cent slowly rose up and onto the stage, where he and his rumored girlfriend performed “Can’t Leave Him Alone.” Although Fif isn’t on the Scream bill, he might as well be: He’s popped up with “surprise” appearances on the tour several times, including earlier this week in Hampton, Virginia. 50 was immediately greeted, well, like the man who runs New York. The crowd got stupid. After their duet, Ciara asked 50 if he would perform one of his songs, and if you think there was any way he wasn’t going to rock in his hometown, you’re just plain foolish.

    “I Get Money” was … well, remember the first episode of “Lost,” when the plane was ripped apart and just about everyone and everything went flying? It was that. 50 brought out some of his wolves: Lloyd Banks, Mobb Deep, Tony Yayo, you get the picture. But it was big, it was loud, the energy level was as high as a satellite. It was that big MSG moment that a superstar who claims he runs the city – in that very song no less – was supposed to bring. It was almost a show-stealer.”

    as Kanye rapped, 50 ran around the stage like he was doing a victory lap, stopping along the way to bump shoulders and say what’s up to Tip, ‘Ye and Jay. Then, out of nowhere, Diddy ran up and got onstage with them. Although the audience was rocking to West, the spectacle of seeing everybody together onstage – especially the two guys who have been hyping their September 11 in-store showdown (see ” Kanye West Thanks 50 Cent For Much-Hyped Rivalry: ‘We Push Each Other’ ” and “50 Cent Explains Last Week’s Blowup, Says ‘I Will Be #1 On September 11′ “) – on one stage at the same time took precedence

  • Ron Simmons

    DAMN!

  • unknown

    That was Billion dollars on stage that night. I am just talking 3 people who had more money then the whole MSG and other performers combined. That just real talk. Hova- best there is, wasn’t his concert and they ended the show with the crowd throwing up the ROC. Hate if you want but that’s a living legend without doubt. Corperate Takeover.

  • Wood Grain Grippa

    I wonder what Billy O’raily (how ever his name is spelt) is gonna say abt this. not that it matters.

    but to the hip hop fanatics this is something we all been waiting for. someone to take the first step.

  • Cuban Link

    this is a good look for NY, but XXL you guys fucking suck.During TIs performance first Jay came out, then he brought Kanye.Then Diddy ran out with them, and everyone performed their individual songs.After that, Swizzy came out and did Money in the Bank.

    what they need next is to have the young new york get together.Saigon, Pappy, Skyzoo, Jae Millz, Joell Ortiz, Tru York, Grafh etc thatd be sick and a way to get us popping

  • BklynBandette

    First, on July 18, I witnessed a similar free for all concert @ NY’s S.O.B.’s with Kanye, Swizz, Just Blaze, Common, Consequence, Saigon, Mos Def, Talib Kwali, Q-Tip, Rah-Digga, Queen Latifah, & Hakim from Channel Live. NOW THIS! I don’t know about y’all but I’m convinced: HipHop Is Alive & Well. She never left us … We Left HER!

    It’s impossible for this shit to have been hot, it was live. LOL suckadickmakeaniggarich. that’s a joke though still, NY rap wouldn’t be any better. The 3 richest men of hip-hop, rhyming about what? Nothing good can come out of that….I sure wish they could prove me wrong though. hehe SK look at Cuban Link’s post. THAT’S hip-hop. With the exception of Tru Life. IDK bout that. Purple Hulk is kinda right…except for that ‘Ye thing.
