This Video Of Jay Z Rapping On TV In 1990 Is Amazing

Jay busts a verse on camera for the very first time.

The folks over at Egotripland have unearthed quite the gem: a clip of Jay Z rapping for the first time on TV, like it's just you and me. The clip features Jay delivering a verse alongside Big Daddy Kane on a 1990 episode of Rap City, right after Kane attempts to debunk the AIDS rumors that followed him around for part of the '90s. The video is very entertaining to watch, just to see a very, very young version of arguably the most famous rapper in the world right now. Watch it above, and check out another interview with Kane on Rap City below, too.
