Jay-Z & Kanye Inaugural performances

Jay-Z performed his new song “History” at the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball, the first of ten which President Obama attended. The song, produced by Kanye West and featuring vocals from his backup singer, Tony Williams, should be on Jay’s upcoming Blueprint 3.

But Jay-Z wasn’t the only hip-hop representative at the Inaugural Balls…

Kanye West himself performed at the Youth Ball, with a short medley of his songs “Touch The Sky,” “American Boy,” “Stronger,” “Good Life” and “Heartless.”

After the performance, Kanye expressed his gratitude for being able to perform for Obama, and his wish for his mother to have been alive to see the moment.

Props to 3030FM for the Jay-Z video, and KanyeLive for the Kanye video.
