When Jay-Z Trolled Noel Gallagher + Oasis While Playing ‘Wonderwall’

Not everyone was thrilled about Jay-Z headlining Glastonbury in 2008, and the Oasis and Noel Gallagher rapper’s epic troll after the Brit-rock musician spoke out against the lineup did TikTok’s turn lately.

Noel Gallagher is known for talking trash about other artists and in 2008 Jay-Z was no exception. The Oasis guitarist-songwriter said “people [weren’t] gonna go” at the festival with Jay-Z headlining. The Oasis member was uncool with a hip-hop artist at the top of the bill at what had been mostly a rock-centric festival these last years.

“Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw a weird curveball on a Sunday night you say ‘Kylie Minogue?’ I don’t know. But I don’t have hip-hop in Glastonbury. That’s not true,” the musician said.

As you can see in the video, Jay-Z obviously heard Noel Gallagher’s headlining comments about him and not only aired his on-screen comments and interviews ahead of his show, but also kicked off an Oasis song while preparing to perform for the crowd.

Jay-Z decided to open his set at Glastonbury with a montage of people hating him (Noel Gallagher included) and saying things like he was “the best rapper ever”. Then, after the edit was read, he opened his set with “Wonderwall” and the crowd went crazy and sang along.

After Jay-Z finished singing ‘Wonderwall,’ the crowd started chanting his name, then he said, ‘I just have one thing to say,’ before kicking off ’99 Problems’ with the lyrics : “If you got girl problems, I feel bad for you son / I got 99 problems but a female dog ain’t one.” The rapper definitely made the most of Noel Gallagher’s comments and ended up playing it with the crowd.

This throwback video below has gone viral and you can reminisce about that performance in the video below.
