Rappers Jay-Z and Q-Tip both took the stage Friday night (Jul 31) at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ and performed at the 2009 All Points West Music & Arts Festival.

According to reports, Jay-Z, who filled in for the Beastie Boys, opened his show with his very own rendition of the Beasties’ 1986 classic “No Sleep Till Brooklyn.” He later dedicated his entire 80-minute set to Adam “MCA” Yauch of the Beastie Boys, who recently announced that he was diagnosed with cancer.
