Rapper Jay-Z brought Brooklyn to Austin, Texas with a thrilling concert at the SXSW festival. The hip-hop king headlined the American Express Sync Show on Monday (March 12) at the Austin City Limits Live venue, which was streamed online for millions of fans via YouTube.

“SXSW. Your welcome,” Hov told the crowd as he kicked off his 90-minute concert with ‘What More Can I Say?’ Dressed in all-black with a floral-printed snapback hat and Kanye West‘s custom-designed Air Yeezy 2 sneakers, Jay-Z held the audience in a rapture as he performed a medley of his classic songs.

From ’99 Problems’ to ‘Big Pimpin’ to ‘Dirt Off Your Shoulder’ to ‘Just Wanna Love You,’ Jay had the entire venue of people bouncing up-and-down non-stop. He continued the rapid pace of hits firing off songs like ‘On to the Next One,’ ‘Jigga (What’s My Name)’ and ‘Run This Town.’ “Do you like this pace?” he asked the crowd, in which they responded with an enthusiastic roar.

Midway through the set, Jay-Z slowed it down a bit with his introspective tracks like ‘Beach Chair’ and his most-anticipated number ‘Glory,’ his ode to his newborn Blue Ivy Carter. He concluded his thrilling set with a bevy of noteworthy tracks including ‘Hard Knock Life,’ ‘Empire State of Mind’ and finally ‘Encore.’

The Roc was definitely in the building Monday night at Austin, Texas. If you missed the excitement, the “Amex Sync Show Presenting Jay-Z” will streamed for a week (until March 19) on YouTube.
