Jay-Z held his farewell concert last night (November 25) at Madison Square Garden.

The sold out show was a who's who in rap and R&B music, featuring Beyonce, the Roc-A-Fella family, R.Kelly, Missy Elliot, Foxy Brown and Mary J. Blige.

The concert highlighted the phenomenal success the Brooklyn born rapper has acheived.

Jay-Z started the show performing some of his greatest hits, bringing Freeway, Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, Young Gunz, Missy Elliot and Twista to the stage for duets.

Later in the evening Jay's love interest, Beyonce took over the stage with five dancers. Her set was backed by Illadelphonic, a new 7-piece band fronted by The Roots' ?Love.

She performed "Crazy in Love," "Baby Boy" without Sean Paul and "Summertime" with Ghostface Killah, who appeared on an unofficial remixed version of the song.

Foxy Brown and Jay appeared together, performing their smash, "Ainā¤"t No N*gga."

Mary J. Blige was on hand to perform "Can't Knock The Hustle" and then launched into her own set.

R. Kelly was the final guest and after the performance, Jay-Z finished the show on his own.

The concert was an exclamation point to Jay-Z's career, in which he has sold over 20 million records, produced movies and a clothing line and debuted at number 1 six times

Damn, that sounds like a great concert to me. Too bad he's gonna stop with music, I wasn't a fan or something, but most of his music I enjoyed to listen. :]

Damn well I am 100% up for whatever Jay Z wants to do. I have respect for him 100%. Jay Z can retire, he won't effect me. I wish I could have went to that concert. Sounds great! Jay Z - !!!!!!!!!
