In an interview with the L.A. Times, Jay-Z reveals that artists like DMX helped him up his own performances.
“In hip-hop, there’s not many great performers. I look outside the genre, measuring myself against others. I look at Madonna’s production and envy that. Daft Punk’s set.
“My early years? Forget it. I was a horrible performer. DMX tore me to pieces. I remember being stunned. DMX had me really working. But I had to figure this out. If you want to be a headliner, you better put on a headline show.”
