Hip hop superstar Jay-Z kicked off the unofficial start of the South By Southwest music conference and festival by performing an 80 minute show streaming live online and promoted by American Express. Jay ran through several of his biggest hits, including "Empire State of Mind, "Glory" and "99 Problems."
"I'm feeling a lot of love in this building," Jay-Z said onstage. "I'm feeling a lot of love in this city today. I'm feeling a lot of love in this city tonight."
"You had a beautiful time and I had a beautiful time," Jay-Z said to the crowd near the end of the show.
