Rapper and performer Jay-Z dedicated his ’99 Problems’ song to the GOP ticket Senator John MCCain and Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin.
“I’m gonna get in trouble for this!'” said Jay-Z onstage.
DJ AM, who managed to walk away from a fatality plane crash that claimed four lives, seriously wounding him and rocker Travis Barker, joined Jay-Z for the special concert celebrating the reopening of the Hollywood Palladium.
The Palladium show was the DJ’s first live appearance since the plane crash.
The Los Angeles Times noted that during the performance Jay-Z gave a shout to Barker and the four people who died in the crash, saying, “We’re gonna party it up for them tonight.”
Then Jay-Z dedicated “99 Problems” to John McCain and a certain “homegirl,” whom he described as “the one who says ‘You betcha.’ “
“I’m gonna get in trouble for this,” Jay laughed onstage, “but f— it, this is freedom of speech.”
