Jigga snags “Most Memorable Moment” prize at the UK Festival Awards

Rap star Jay-Z was honored on Thursday with the “Most Memorable Moment” award at the UK Festival Awards. According to WENN, Jay won for his headlining mocking performance at June’s Glastonbury festival. 

It was all in the intro: Jay-Z stepped out in dark shades on a dark stage lit up by a ray of red and blue. Instead of his one mic, he had a guitar slung around his chest. He leaned into the microphone with a sneer and bellowed, “Today is going to be the day that they’re going to throw it back to you!” 

The line was quite familiar…it was, ironically, the opening to Oasis’ hit song “Wonderwall.” It came right on the heels of Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher, calling hip hop at Glastonbury “wrong.” 

“They say you don’t want me here, Glastonbury,” Jay-Z told the elated audience, “Now tell me, where is the love?”
