While King Louie, Kaattttiieeee and Chano were killing it alongside the G.O.O.D. familia at Brazos Hall, The Throne took to the stage at Austin Music Hall for their Samsung user-exclusive performance.
Kanye and Jay definitely had Austin Music Hall packed for what we’re sure was an amazing show — hell, even Jay Elec showed up. Check out ‘Ye and Jay opening their set with “H.A.M” above and hit the jump to catch them running through “Otis” and closing with “N*ggas In Paris” below.Ty Howard 0

Last night, JZ and JT’s Legends of Summer tour landed in Chicago, and sold out Soldier Field — a first by any rapper, I believe. Sure, Jay had the help of Justin, but never mind that. It’s still a milestone.
The stage show was ill, the build out and stage set up was insane, with both artists piggybacking off each other, performing together and also taking breaks while the other one rocked. Live band, back up singers, the works. If you missed it, you missed out. But you already know that. Here we have some footage of Jay and Justin’s first song of the evening “Holy Grail.” They didn’t get into their “Suit & Tie” shit until later in the night.Andrew Barber 1
‘Ye didn’t attend this year’s Grammy Award show, but that didn’t stop him from winning three awards alongside Jay-Z. The Throne took home awards for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “N****s In Paris”, while also winning an award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “No Church In The Wild”. How’s that for the ninth anniversary of The College Dropout’s release?
If you’re keeping count, that makes 21 Grammy Awards in total for Mr. West. Clap for ’em.Ty Howard 0
