Last night Jay-Z kicked off his Glastonbury headline set with what we hope will be the final word in this ongoing Oasis feud. A few months back, Noel Gallagher claimed it was “wrong” to feature hip-hop at the fest. Jay-Z responded by defending the legitimacy of his art form. The Sun pointed out that Oasis are UK festival royalty and Jay-Z is a former New York drug dealer. Wha?
Pre-show, Jay spoke to Radio 1, saying, “If Noel Gallagher saw me perform … he wouldn’t say that.”
Then, the moment of truth. Jay strapped on a guitar and mockingly sang (sort of) and strummed (not really) along to Oasis’s biggest hit.
And yes that was “99 Problems” given an AC/DC makeover. So, in the end, everyone won? Except this guy.
