Jay-Z Wins Sports Emmy Award For Super Bowl Performance

Hov scores another trophy for his epic performance of "Run This Town."

Jay-Z claimed he “sport fly shit, I should win the ESPY,” and while he’s yet to take home that trophy, he’s gradually making his way there. The Brooklyn, New York rapper received the Sports Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Composition/Direction/Lyrics for his performance of “Run This Town” during Super Bowl XLIV.

The epic performance, aired as the opener to the football game, featured Hov in a dapper suit surrounded by the E.S. Posthumus music group. As he rapped along to the cut, footage from NFL games cut across the screen.

Additionally, Jigga man collaborators U2 were honored with the award for their performance with the Soweto Gospel Choir during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

    Its good to see a person like Jay Z doing big and positive things. People hate on Jay or call him gay names but they would rather respect somebody like Gucci or Waka who cant rap or somebody like TI who is stupid for being in and out of jail. But when we have a Black man doing something good we bash him. Niggaz need to grow up

      yeah I feel what you saying People respect lil boosie, and gucci, or TI,because we see they been to jail n sh*t so n*ggz think they "real". Gucci shot somebody a couple years ago in his house, but jay-z shot a nigga when he was only 12yrs old...#DAMN
