“Jay-Z is the greatest rapper alive. Anyone who was in attendance at his sold-out Key Arena concert Saturday night can attest to that fact. Hova, Young Hov, Jigga, Hovito, whatever you call him Shawn Carter is on top of the rap game and there were no signs of him stepping down any time soon during his career-spanning two-hour show.”
