If you didn’t know Brooklyn rapper Jay-Z was a comedian in his spare time, you probably got the hint during his Grammy speech, or lack thereof, this past Sunday.
After nabbing a Grammy for the “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration” for his Watch The Throne banger “No Church In The Wild” featuring Kanye West, Frank Ocean, and The-Dream, Jay-Z decided to stray away from a classic acceptance speech, and instead, delivered a great one-liner for The-Dream’s questionable style choices.
Once The-Dream finished his speech, Jay-Z chimed in with a quick joke, stating:
“I’d like to thank the swap meet for his hat.”
The laughable moment eventually became a trending topic on Twitter and made headlines on all major news sources.
GlobalGrind decided to round up 10 of Jay-Z’s funniest moments.
