Jay Z And Friends At Barclay October 20th? Hell On Earth


With all due respect to Mr and Mrs Smith, Jay Z and Beyoncé, that Tidal festival looks like a long evening for not too many rewards. If what is was was Hov, Bey, Nicki Minaj and Prince, you think, OK, four heavy hitters, sure we are all sick to our back teeth with Jay and Beyoncé, but if they bring their “A” game, and Minaj remembers how to rap again, it might be worth the while. But it isn’t. Instead it is virtually a hell on earth 12-12-12 no sleep till hammersmith.

Here is the line up:



Damian Marley



Lil Wayne

Nicki Minaj




Alessia Cara

Flatbush Zombies

Thomas Rhett



Benjamin Booker

Justine Skye

Cipha Sounds

DJ Reflex

That’s too much. Either you are there til 4 in the morning, or it is some kind of weird crap where everybody is jamming or… wait a second, what is Thomas Rhett doing there? If you give all the big names half an hour each, and every else quarter of an hour, and it starts promptly at 8pm, you won’t be out of there until 4am. And if you aren’t, well then what are you doing?

There is no cachet for big stars anymore, they are always playing around town If you haven’t seen Jay Z a dozen times so far it is because you don’t want to. He won’t stop playing around town at ridiculous prices. Beyoncé performed four days ago.  Plus, to reach either  you have to sit through Damian Marley and, er Flatbush Zombies (whoever they are)

Personally, I wouldn’t go if you paid me while if it was just Prince I very well might.
