JAY-Z pays homage to Drake, raps over “Know Yourself” on ‘4:44’ tour

Excellence recognize excellence.


JAY-Z is currently amid his already-successful 4:44 tour run, most recently stopping in Toronto.

During his performance, Hov decides to show love to Drake, which was especially fitting, given the setting of being in the rapper's beloved hometown.

The rapper also talks the launch of his new label.

For the special moment, which was thankfully captured on video, JAY-Z raps his verse from "Jigga What, Jigga Who" while his DJ plays the 6 God's "Know Yourself," off If You're Reading This It's Too Late, creating a bit of an on-the-fly live remix.

According to DJ Akademiks, Drizzy was also in the building to bear witness to JAY-Z putting respect on his name. Pretty dope.

In addition to touring his most recent studio album, JAY-Z also released three new music videos off the project, sharing new visuals for "Legacy" (which has cameos from Susan Sarandon, Ron Perlman, Jesse Williams and more), "Smile" (which features JAY-Z's mother) and for "Marcy Me."

Take a look at JAY-Z rapping over Drake's track while in Toronto in the clip below.
