We were scratching our heads at why Jay-Z performed at the Cartoon Network Adult Swim upfronts party at Roseland Ballroom last night — maybe he’s a big Aqua Teen Hunger Force fan? — until we heard that the rapper/mogul has a development deal with the network. What could this mean? Are we getting a Lil Hova cartoon? Please?! Til we find out, jump below to catch Jay perform some of his hits, and bring Swizz Beatz on stage for “On To The Next One.”
“Intro” and “Thank You” (over The Boondocks theme song)
“On To The Next One” with Swizz Beatz
Here’s a montage of the performance, compliments of NYClout.com:
Vulture points out that Adult Swim is also developing shows with music acts Odd Future and Major Lazer. Trivia time: Major Lazer’s outrageous “Pon De Floor” video (for the song currently being sampled to death in Beyonce’s “Run The World (Girls)”) was directed by Eric Wareheim, the star and co-creator of Adult Swim’s Tim And Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Everything is six degrees away from everything else, folks.
