This past Wednesday, Jay Z, or Jaÿ Z as he apparently likes to be referred to now, announced that he would be performing his B-side catalog at an upcoming concert in New York on May 13 to promote his TIDAL music streaming service.

Well, this got us over at The Urban Daily thinking. What would we, as Jay Z aficionados want to see him play? We threw the question to our pool of writers and compiled the following list of songs we’d love Hov to perform live on May 13.
