Last night at SXSW, rapper Jay-Z took to the stage for an 80-minute performance that was streamed live on YouTube, and now the full show is available to view online.

"SXSW, you're welcome!" shouted Hova to the crowd, after opening with "What More Can I Say?"

The rapper had the audience hanging on every word as he performed old favorites like "99 Problems," and newer songs such as "Glory." When the rapper stumbled over a few words, he would stop the live band and start over.

"I don't f*ck around with the words to my songs, y'all," said Jay-Z. "You came to see a live show right?"

Check out part two of his performance here.
