Jay-Z's return to Southeast Michigan Wednesday night proved the rap legend still knows how to work a crowd.
The sold-out crowd at the Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center was game for whatever Jay-Z threw its way. No matter how old, the audience not only stood and danced in support, it sung along the entire way.
The 90-minute performance afforded Jay-Z enough time to rattle through most of his classics. It's not uncommon for artists who've been around as long as Jay-Z to forget a lyric here or there, but Jay-Z never did. From "Jigga What? Jigga Who?" to "Big Pimpin'" to "Death of Autotune," Jay-Z emptied his catalog.
