Jay-Z, photographed performing ‘Izzo (H.O.V.A.)’ on the stage outside the MTV Video Music Awards on September 8, 2001. On his shoulder you can see he has stitched an “Aaliyah” badge onto his jersey. Just two weeks earlier he had tragically lost his close friend in a plane crash.
DID YOU KNOW: Aaliyah’s favorite basketball team was the Chicago Bulls. I wonder if Jay-Z picked this BULLS jersey on purpose when paying tribute?
