Jay-Z’s NYC Theatre Day Takes Him To Ed Sullivan, Blender

Two days before his big 9/11 show at MSG, Shawn Carter took a theatre tour through the city to promote his Blueprint 3 LP. His first stop was Letterman’s couch, where Jay-Z and Dave-Z traded words (well, a word) about marital bliss and talked about how this third Blueprint was distinct from the previous installments (“it’s three times as better”). Afterward it was on the next one (Swizz Beat reference, that song is so good), HOV hitting the Blender Theatre for a show organized by MySpace Music and DJ Hero, and attended by some 600 MySpace friends. We have some pictures of Jay-Z looking like Jay-Z at the event, and here’s that Letterman clip. Mr. Carter takes his talk show banter very dry.
