The key to hip-hop immortality is catalog and on Monday night (February 6) Jay-Z proved that he’s unmatched when he performed for the first time at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall. The first of two benefit concerts, which were designed to raise money to send NYC students to college was for a good cause, but after rocking for almost two hours, Hov proved that he is indeed a bad man! If you weren’t able to make it out last night RapFix has you covered. Check the set list from Jay’s Monday night concert below.

Last night Jay put his entire career on display with a set-list that reached into 1996’s Reasonable Doubt and 1997’s In My Lifetime, Vol.1, as well as his latest solo album The Blueprint III.
