Talk about longevity: Jay-Z has been hip hop's reigning champ through the cassette, CD, MP3 and now the smartphone app era. Then again, no format can equal seeing the rap god live at the Garden, where he'll be knocking out nearly 20 years worth of hits from his classic debut Reasonable Doubt to his latest Magna Carta Holy Grail.
Sat Jan 18 8p. TD Garden, 100 Legends Way, West End (617-624-1050). $49-166 here.
