Jay Z Performs Drake’s ‘Pound Cake’ Live In England


/ October 5, 2013

On the road promoting his 4th of July release Magna Carta Holy Grail, Jay Z is expanding his setlist.

During his Magna Carta World Tour kick-off show in Manchester, England this week, Hov performed his feature on Drake’s new album Nothing Was the Same for the first time ever. The 2-part track, “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2” features Jay Z on the Sara Lee-friendly first slice of the song. Jigga sandwiched “Pound Cake” into his set after “Dead Presidents II” off his 1996 Reasonable Doubt debut. Other songs from Hov’s 30-track set included “Holy Grail,” “Fuckwithmeyouknowigotit,” “Oceans,” “Empire State of Mind,” “Run This Town,” “Tom Ford,” “Encore” and “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)”

Hov kicks off the U.S. leg of his Magna Carter World Tour on Nov. 30 in St. Paul, Minn.
