Jay-Z Wins Sports Emmy

4 May


Hov has another accomplishment to add to his resume. Yesterday, he won a Sports Emmy for Outstanding Music Composition/Direction/Lyrics for his performance of his 2009 single “Run This Town,” which aired as the opener to last years Super Bowl between the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints.

In the clip Jigga collaborates with ES Posthumus for a mash-up of Jay’s Rihanna-assisted hit mixed with a beefed up rendition of CBS’ NFL theme song. Hov plays maestro, as he’s backed by an orchestra with football highlights flashing on the big screen behind him.

Here’s the video in case you missed it.
