Last night's Jay-Z concert at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC ended on a more somber note when he asked the audience to observe a moment of silence in honor of Donda West, Kanye's mother who passed away suddenly over the weekend. Right before performing his final song, "Roc Boys" Jay-Z said to the crowd, "Let's get serious for a minute...This show is dedicated to Kanye West who had a death in the family....We got you, Kanye. Stay strong." Despite their usually hardened exterior, it's nice to hear that deep down these guys really are sweethearts and there for each other. In case you're curious, TMZ is staying on top of the story with frequent updates. Hopefully Kanye and his family are surrounded by all sorts of love during this difficult time.
Lots more of Jay-Z performing in NYC so
