See The Jay-Z Effigy Nas Wanted To Hang At Summer Jam 2002 (Video)

    Ten years ago Nas planned to lynch an effigy of Jay-Z on stage at Hot 97’s Summer Jam. The organizers nixed the idea and cancelled Nas’ performance, but the effigy idea made it well past the planning stage, and actually went into production. Now, a video clip has surfaced showing the animatronic Jay-Z complete with a silicone face and computer programmed twitching. The images are creepy enough, but the commentary from the designer is just weird:
    “Since Jay-Z wouldn’t really let us hang him, we made this.”
