Rap mogul Jay-Z has opened up about Lil Wayne‘s surprise appearance at Madison Square Garden during his Blueprint III tour stop in New York City last week.
Jay was happy that Wayne could perform one final time before heading into jail for a one-year sentence.
“It was fantastic,” Jay said in an interview. “Again, any time you play the Garden is a special moment. It’s special. Wayne, how that worked out, he was supposed to go away for a year. Somehow he was able to perform that last show. He came out to an incredible reaction. Then Drake, Nicki Minaj — all on Jeezy‘s set, which was fantastic. Then Trey Songz and Fabolous. It’s one of those magical nights at the Garden. Once again, one of those magical nights.” (MTV)
