By Amanda Maxwell
JAY-Z's 4:44 Tour is putting his legacy into perspective. Providing a raw live experience to his fans, the rapper is not letting anyone down on this tour. With a mix of all his classic hits and his new album 4:44, this is a tour you don't want to miss.
See what the reviews are saying about JAY-Z's 4:44 Tour!
“JAY-Z's unusual vulnerability elevates 4:44 to something more than just a tawdry reality show. And the album is full of Love & Hip-Hop-styled revelations.”
“For an artist as prolific as Jay, these concerts often serve as a condensed 'greatest hits.' While 4:44 was ultimately the focal project, Hov brought out a solid mix of classics, representing many (with a few notable omissions, chiefly American Gangster) of his older albums.”
“In rhyme, he laid out many of the insecurities and difficulties that have come with being who he is.”
“And yet for all the flash in his music, JAY-Z has always been an unflashy performer — he’s not antic and never overexerts. The effectiveness of his concerts comes from how effortlessly he holds the stage, one man carrying the weight of a genre, and still gliding.”
“And over the course of 90 minutes, Jay proceeded to rock the jam-packed venue from the rafters to the floor while internalizing a continuous stream of fans' cheers and 'Hova' chants.”
