Win Tickets to Jay-Z’s All Points West Performance

New XXL editor-in-chief Vanessa Satten is giving away five tickets to this Friday’s (July 31) All Points West Music and Arts Festival starring headliner Jay-Z.

As XXLMag.com previously reported Hov was recently added to the bill after The Beastie Boys were forced to cancel due to health reasons. The first five readers to hit up the EIC on Twitter (twitter.com/vsatten) with the answer to the following question will win the tickets: which Beastie Boy was in the studio when Jay recorded “99 Problems?”

XXL recently spoke to Paul Tollet, the president of the show’s concert promotion company Goldenvoice to find out what to expect from the Brooklyn MC’s performance. “[Jay-Z] hasn’t really headlined these festivals in America…but in Europe, he’s been kind of ruling these festivals,” he said. “I think Jay-Z’s really going to raise the bar on this.”

Jay will be joining a lineup that already includes Q-Tip, The Pharcyde and a reunited Organized Konfusion. All Points West Fest kicks off this Friday at noon at the Liberty State Park in New Jersey. For more information visit the festival’s website here. –Max G

    Jay is over, he dropped that Jockin Jay z last summer thinking he was gone get some buzz and drop BLUEPRINT 3, nothing doing, so then he comes out at summer jam tried to create some buzz with D.O.A (DYNASTY. OVER .A$$HOLE), didnt work, so then he went 50 cent on us and started name dropping and dissing people, didnt work either, might generate a few extra units from the west coast since game is calling him out. Other than that Jay aint really had a buzz since 99 problems, Roc Boyz was alright, but if American Gangsta the movie hadnt came out he wouldnt had no buzz for that either. I heard the next single off BLueprint 3, its called “Michael Jordan with the Wizrds”!! LMAO
