Jay-Z Riffs on Coldplay's 'Paradise' at Paralympics Closing Ceremony (Video)
The rap powerhouse also performed "Run This Town" with Rihanna during Sunday's show.
Jay-Z performed alongside his friend, Coldplay's Chris Martin, at Sunday night's Paralympics closing ceremony in London, contributing new rhymes to the band's hit song "Paradise."
"Gold medals around my throat/you can take everything except my hope," he rapped during a well reviewed finale to the 2012 games.
The three-hour event also included Coldplay's performances of "Yellow" and "Us Against the World" as well as Rihanna taking the stage with Jay-Z to perform their "Run This Town" collaboration.
Last week in Philadelphia, Jay-Z launched the Budweiser Made in America Festival, which he curated, lining up such acts as Kanye West, Skrillex, Passion Pit and Janelle Monae. Meanwhile, Ron Howard captured footage for a documentary he's making on the event.
