jay z and alicia keys world series

After a 24-hour delay, Brooklyn native Jay-Z and Harlem’s own Alicia Keys got to perform their hit hometown anthem, “Empire State of Mind,” before Game 2 of the World Series between the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies the Bronx on Thursday night.

Hov and A. Keys had been due to take the stage at last night’s World Series kickoff, but their performance was delayed due to inclimate weather.

"I made the Yankees hat more famous than a Yankee can," he rapped from a stage placed in the outfield.

Swizz Beatz and Bruce Willis were among the many famous New Yorkers in attendance who swayed to the rapper's lyrics.

"New Yoooorrrrk," Keys sang from behind her piano before joining Jay-Z out front.

After Thursday's (October 29) game, the series shifts to Philadelphia, where the champs will host games three, four and (if necessary) five at Citizens Bank Ballpark.
