The Associated Pres is currently reporting that Jay Z and Alicia Keys will be performing their hit song Empire State Of Mind for the first game of the World Series tonight.
Well that's not what we here at MediaTakeOut.com are hearing. Word on the street is that despite agreeing to do so last week, the Yankees are looking to back out
What's the problem? Well MediaTakeOut.com caught wind that higher ups in the Yankees organization are upset with a couple of lines in the song.
No, not his foul language. Or his use of the N Word. Apparently someone is upset that he said "I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can."
Come on guys … That’s it … Some people can be so sensitive.
EDITOR'S UPDATE: Some other sites are saying that Jay Z will not be performing tonight because he's scheduled to perform a concert in Ohio. Believe that if you want, but that concert's been booked since the Summer and the World Series schedule was made last week. Soooo ... why is the conflict coming up ONLY TODAY ....
well he did make the Yankee hat more famous lol...
top ten!! and I live in Japan!! WOO HOO
Maybe next time.
ALICIA KEYS IS SO FINE
thats dead wrong..... i bet they will tho
this is stupid !
that song is my
i love the Yankees ,
but yall better not
pull this stunt . .
come on , its the
PERFECT song .

they might not because LIL mama said she in there too
what ever they are always trying to keep a brotha and a sista down.
my bad let them perform hit the wrong letter
Yall had 2 throw lil mamma in the pic huh Mto? LOL!
forget singing, bring out some sexy rican freaks from Queens with yankees on in swimsuits.
Well he is pose to perform in Columbus ***. I think that's real reason.
*** y'all are fast on here... When will I get a chance to be first!!!!!
Honestly, they *** be allowed to perform!
Top 20? Hi Mom!
I believe that could be true. Follow me @treytymestgo
It is what it is..
wow that was super dumb
NOT BELIEVING IT, MTO WILL MAKE ANYTHING UP!
They are performing tomorrow...can't perform *** due to rain ***..get your facts straight..it's not about lyrics..
Hes performing the song with the unchanged lyrics thursday!!!
Is that line in the song really that serious?!?!? I'm sure he can modify it for that one performance! We need all the NY love we can get for this series...WORD!
Who actually gives a ***?
Jay Z is so *** done...
This is the World Series, not some club booking. A lesson to both Alicia and J-Z....this is NYC, home of the NY Yankees and they don't own either one of them.
o well :( it's the perfect song too!
that's the hottest song in NY, whats the probleM?
I was getting excited about this. Oh well Jigga
Follow me www.twitter.com/W_The_Man
lmao... she played herself now everybody makin jokes about her cause she had no business goin up there... stupid! her lip gloss poppin now!
Well he did make the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee... That's still not a good enough reason to not have them perform ***...
That's even if they have the game *** cuz it's a raining mess out here in NYC...
Why did y'all show the pic with lil mama in it...
don't make no sense
He does have a radio version to this song MTO.
lol at that photo
NOT NEWS TO ME!!! BRING ON THE *** STORIES!!!
Mto last time I check it was because of the rain, but they will do it 2morrow
I didnt even notice he wore yankee hats until he mention in the song...and really who there is going to care if they perform or not..
Must be Steinbrenner. He holds the veto power!
Looking for love?
Black Coffee and Candy
is for black singles.
Ladies get in free!!
There not performing because of the weather its raining a lot here.
Doesn't matter. My Phils are gonna wax that *** regardless..
Lies MTO- They are setting up and rehearshing at this very moment in Times Square. After every body see Jay and Alicia preform *** then you will know you can't trust [SPAM] because this story is a bunch of BullSh*t
I could give 2 ***! As a Native New Yorker, I only care that the Yankees WIN!! Not some dumb-*** cRAPPER and a half-breed, homewrecking *** performing some dumb *** song.....
Lil Mama's career is over. -- I'm just saying.
LOL at the Lil Mama comment!
@amandapanda, you hate us Black women so much, Naaa, I think you really love us, considering your love for black men, who came from a Black woman.
Kingramses, are that angry, LOL, it's not that serious. Calm down, for real, you're too emotional, besides, your mother's a ***, if you call another woman that, right?
Well MTO knows...
I think this is some bullsh*t.... they've been bangin that song all through the series they just had with the Angels... I don't see them backing out now just because of that line. Plus, Jay has the utmost respect for the Yankees and their legacy... that's his team. There's no way that he would disrespect them in any way... he'll be there, even if he has to change that line. He'll be there.
@ Big_Moose... GET THE F*CK OUTTA HERE WITH THAT BULLSH*T! WE'RE THE F*CKIN YANKEES... 'NUFF SAID!!!
He's gonna perform.. He'll just change that one line.. Mark my words
Actually MTO, He's performing the song with alicia for game 2. The weather is bad out here and the equipment would mess up the field so it's been pushed back to tomorrow. Source:Jay-z Good day new york interview this morning.
tell them not to perform lil mama will pop up behind home base noddin her *** head again
The only reason he *** be allowed to perform is if it is a CAMEL FREE ZONE!! Who really wants to a watch a camel and a woman perform a song. I wouldn't....I'm just sayin.
GET YOUR STORY STRAIGHT MTO! DUE TO THE WEATHER- They are performing tomorrow nite (THURSDAY)! WOW...the madness needs to STOP!
he's in bmore *** for the tour. ***
@ cupcakesforyou... NICE PIC! I LOVE STRINGER BELL... HIS SKIN, HIS SWAGGA.... DAAAAYUUUM.... HE IS SO FINE... DEFINITELY WITHIN MY TOP 5! NO DOUBT! Did u see him on B.E.T the other nite for the awards?... mmm... brotha was lookin DEEEEELICOUS! :)
All the more reason it's gonna feel so good to snuff that smugness.
yeah, you're the Yankees...and we're the champs. Once we win, I'm going to clean my dog's poop with a copy of the New York Post and mail it to Steinbrenner.
@babygirlmrs, ain't he fine gurl?
@amandapanda, why don't you kill yourself...got the *** for you to do so, and how come you wont post a real pic of yourself?? tori spelling really...if you look anything like this horse face B*&%$ than no worries...but i got that good-good so i aint worried bout, black, white, red, blue...come get these ***...

Yea the f*ck right, he didn't make nothing more famous. Please get up on your yanks history. NY stand up.
It's not smuggness... it's confidence boo. The Yankees legacy cannot be denied... our ***, our line up... none of that can be denied. The Phillies are gonna have to work overtime to beat us. Say a prayer and good luck... ur sucky team's gonna need it. :)
and BTW @AmandaPanda i feel sorry for you dirty white or whatever the hell you are a**. To come on mediatakeout and try to blast black women with your ignorant a**. *** you need to look in the mirror and clean your own crusty sh*t. PLEASE
aww cmon mto get the *** outta here wit yall *** u guys r reporting lies
Who gives a ***?
some of you all are stupid. That the weather is the cause of the cancellation is th OFFICIAL excuse. But as a gossip site MTO knows the truth. Jay Z's comment was disrespectful and egotistic and those white execs aren't going to have a rapper say they're team wasn't sh** before Jay Z wore their hat.
I can see why the yankees would find that line offensive
He Ain't Lyin! Hova Hova Hova!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks HotLatte.. I work for the Yankees.. this is all BS.. they are performing on Thursday..
Now lets get this straight JAY Z made the yankees hat famous in the urban community.... but nonetheless new york is the best city And yankees will Be 2009 world series championship....
who cares I won't be to either show and he going to make money either way so NEXT!
I dont believe it but it could be true those whote execs are not listening to j but before he puts on a show they listened to his record and didnt like what he said bout thier beloved yankees!
lmao @ that pic
The song suck anyway. Miami in da house.
*** new york and *** the yankees. nobody outside of ny gives a ***
This story is lame. Who cares? It's not that serious. Shows get cancelled all the time.
dam i can never b first
fcuk the yankees!!......
i wake up listening to that song every day....
Oh so the fact that Jay z raps ''Jesus can't save you life starts when the church ends'' that didn't bother the yankee keepers..pshh Jay z is in illuminati people, please look this up on youtube, its so much more out there than these fake *** rappers---->Open your mind..illuminati
I know why, because they are afraid lil mama's gonna pop outta no where and mess up their performance....lol....
@howard You sound like a *** ass hater Lmao
dats so stupid..it aint dat serious
Even though it is the perfect song for NY considering the ***, AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT THINKS THAT SONG IS WHACK??!!!!
i cuda swore it wud b ab the line "jesus cnt say u"...but this is all ovr a freakn hat...wooooow, sum ppl. 4get j anyways...he's been played out 4 yrs now. doing the same *** ovr & ovr again...snoozer!
either they're gonna do it or not, who cares
grimey *** new yorkers...
@naughtygrl Ofcourse new york run It...we the city that never sleep.....
@bella let them know babygirl lol......
new york hasnt been relevant in hip hop for years. jay-z is so 90's. 50 cent was the last new york rapper to actually sell nationally. hip hop has passed new york. who else?
Jayz is scheduled to perform the 2nd game bc the people in Ohio were ready to start a riot over him rescheduling the concert.They were gon let Jayz do it on the big screen but it isnt the same, so he will do it week 2. This site is always makin *** up wtf
Bella, how bout u just move to ny. that way u can suck *** easier. i know a lot of lame *** in ny. corny
LOL THIS LIKE 1 LINE DUDE!!!!! PLZ THIS HAS 2 B FALSE
well we waiting for You bella:-)
@Bella83 i'm waiting for u in miami boo.
Jay-Z just Scared that Lil MAMA or Kanye will run up on stage
Daily New Music
You aint ever lied. It's not that serious, so I'm not gonna trade name calling or hurling expletives back and forth with anybody. I (assume) everyone on here is grown, otherwise, get ya little bad hooky-playing azzes to school.
Just having fun with it, like my Phils will do with the so-called superior Yanks pitching. Watch Cliff Lee school CC. That's when Howard isn't smacking the ball all the way to Connecticut... A-Roid will disappear again. Sorry Yanks fans, but ever since the Red Sox came back from that 0-3 deficit on ya'll, nobody's scared of the Yanks anymore. :oP
@Bella u gettin' alot of feedback this morning, i'm jealous. Lol.
where did new york rap go??
lol go suck some ny *** u tramp

FIRST OF ALL STOP STARTING STUFF THEY WILL BE AT THE STADIUM FOR GAME 2 THE ONLY REALLY THEY ARENT GOING TO BE THERE FOR GAME 1 IS BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER (SO STOP IT)
lol actually i like ny. but i dont care about who is performing at a baseball game. and i dont think ny is relevant in rap music anymore. that all. btw, bella, is that u in ur avi?
wow they beat and im surprise they catch feeling like that
***....come on you sideline *** step ya game up. Don't be mad cuz you can't bag the worst NY chick on your best day. Where do these lame *** *** come from...*** now that rap went universal *** is gettin reckless....by the way check Raekwon, Jay sales NY is very relevant lame.....*** punks really do jump up to get beat down
Jay sells more locally than nationally, whats ur point? Raekwon?! whats this a 90's hip hop reunion? step into current times lil nicca
I would be upset over it too. Jay is waaay too arrogant.
Ha Ha *** are still feeling bad about that good oh READ. Drop dead ***!
I mean but he did tho, lol so what's the problem???
Give it up already. You are recycling the same lame jokes. Hang it up, F A G!
yeah, but the lyrics they SHOULD be upset over is the 3rd verse when he says "Jesus cant save you, life starts when the church ends".. but of course not.
Rumors are like flies! Flies are always around garbage, sh*t and urine. Once you kill one fly here comes another one.
well that part is true. jesus CAN'T save u. u believe in fairy tales??
Good Luck even having a game ***. It's been raining since yesterday morning and its still raining now.
YALL NEED TO STOP LYING....THEY ARENT PERFORMING BECAUSE OF THE RAIN....THEY WILL PERFORM FOR GAME 2
@ ***... NY isn't relevant in rap music? WTF? U sound silly... and no, that's not Bella's pic.... that's Mya (u know, the has-been singer).
If NY isn't relevant then plz tell me, what city is?
Jay-Z And Alicia Keys' World Series Performance Moved To Later Date

Anne Lu - Celebrity News Service News Writer
New York, NY (CNS) - Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' World Series performance has been moved to Thursday, a day after their original schedule. It was announced that the "Empire State of Mind" hitmakers will perform their NYC ode before the game's first pitch Thursday.
The duo, both New York natives, were announced to perform their hit single at the World Series on Wednesday, when the NY Yankees will play against defending champions the Philadelphia Phillies.
But in a joint statement made by Jay-Z and Major League Baseball, they are changing the date to Thursday, October 29, due to the forecast of inclement weather for Wednesday. Staging for the performance could impact the playing field if it is wet.
what new york rapper is relevant? other than a 40 year old jay-z? btw, that's so lame for ALL ny rappers. how u let a 40 year old be the only relevant rapper in your city? what other ny rapper actually sells records nationally? besides 50, which also was YEARS ago
Jay-Z has been slated to perform in Columbus, OH *** for a while. Get your facts straight MTO.
u have to respect that tho. It may be petty but that particular part of the song might offend some...
It makes no sense- you mean they didnt listen to the lyrics before they asked him to perform? C'mon man he'll be there ***...
So What Om Startin Not 2 Like Hov Any Way
Hey! I am a sexy white girl who is a sports lover,just seeking hot dating or whatever comes. I'm fun, and know how to have a great time, I just upload my latest blog on --------interracialsearching.com-..**---
So what. Who cares if he performs or not?
i would have to agree with jay-z, i had no idea who the yankees were before the song.....LOL
Last I heard, Jay-Z is going to be here in Ohio ***. Quit lying MTO.
I THOUGHT JAHOVA, LUCIFER OR WHATEVER HE CALLS HIMSELF THESE DAYS COULD CONTROL THE WEATHER, ISN'T THIS THE SECOND TIME THIS YEAR HE HAS HAS TO PULL OUT OF AN EVENT DUE TO SEVERE WEATHER, WHO IS HIGHER THAN NUMBER ONE JAY...... THE CREATOR
@@amandafatasspandacom e up with new material cause u saying the same stuff and it's not phasing anyone no more. If anything I feel sorry for cause I see u hate black woman so much Cause u wanna be one.
Thats not the whole story MTO. Its going to rain for game one so they performing for game two. D@mn you guys lie so much to make a story sound convincing.
This story is ***. They aren't performing game 1 because its going to be raining. They will be performing thursday.
people need to get off his nuts, he hypes his on self up and I'm guessing yall missed that weird talking he was doing when he accepted the award last ***.
amanda panda be cracking me up
lol @ amandapanda. ur funny
amandaPanda is lame....your trying to hard
mj movie was funny
AmandaPanda, Get a life.
and loll at the story.
the Yankee's don't need to worry about Jay-z
everybody knows camel's cant play ball.
@@@Bella this trick Amanda is trying to get under ya skin cause u can tell how and what she writes that she wants to be black. That's why she wanna talk so bad bout black woman cause we're strong and she weak. She is trying her best to try to weaking u font let her. She hates her self so much that she probably can't look in the mirror and for so call "Hubby" he hates his self to if he talks bad about black females cause he came from one. It's sad she is a sad case and I'll be *** if she break me cause I promise that she wants to be us. And she keep saying the same ***.
lol @ HotLatte trustin mto for news
Check the weather its raining 2nite...and if the execs didnt like them then y are they rescheduled to perform thursday?
btw mto this was the most boring news day on here ever lol
I BELIEVE THE "OTHER SITES", THE TELL LESS LIES THAN THESE MONKEYS.
that is soo dumb he has been booked since summer now all of a sudden they are complaining about what he said wtf
In black folks world he has made it more famous than the team could- majority of blacks could care less about baseball.
I see why Lil mama jumped on stage. That is the best she has ever looked and she could not let it go to waste. Feel ya ma!!!!!
Who cares its jus a song
Can somebody anybody please tell me how and why Lil Mama is on stage????? I just want to know
GO PHILLIES. WHEN THE PHILLIES WIN THE ENTIRE BASEBALL TEAM IS GOING TO *** ON THE YANKESS FIELD.NEW YORKERS SWEAR THEY'RE TOUGH WAIT UNTIL THE PHILLY FANS HIT THAT STADIUM ITS A WRAP.WE ARE KNOWN TO BASH SOME SKULLS.*** ***.Y AND YOU CAN ALL SUCK IT. WE ARE THE CHAMPS ***...A-ROID WILL BE OUR MASCOT AFTER WE TAKE THE SERIES.
Lil Mama needs to go sit down some *** where. She look so stupid getting up there with Jay-Z and Alicia. She didn't sing one *** lyric in that song so why the hell you go up there. SIT IT DOWN LITTLE GIRL
i live in NY and the talk around here (according to the newspaper) is that they postponed the show till tomorrow because its been raining like cats and dogs here for the past couple days..and the staging would mess up the field, making it "unsafe" for the playing conditions..
homie aint lying!! jigga got more fans WORLDWIDE than the yankees..AND he got domestic fans that dont even like the yankees who wear their hats because they love HIM and his swag..
man if this is true, rich white boys should be so sensitive to not-so-rich brown folk..
why dont they jus put som white hair on it & hav *** jagger or the beatles perform jay's song? *shrugs shoulders*
I always though he said: I made the Yankee hat more famous than the Yankee "Game". Either way they most likely would still make a big deal out that line.
Your right they won't be performing ***. They are supposed to perform tomorrow *** dummys. MTO is sooooo dumb. Really, smh!!!!

@ Everyone, don't address Amanda? She's a young black/ non-black man posing as a white women to get bw riled up. I know it's a guy bcz they keep referencing puzzy and puzzy smells on all of their posts. What woman does that unless she's ***? Str8 women don't care about other women's cooch. If Amanda is a ww, she's a *** who wants a bw. Otherwise, Amanda is a guy.
you got a point @empress8
W.H.I.T.E........L.I.E, MTO UR RITE ON IT IT'S ABOUT THE CAP IF ANY. ***. that's all.
So what if another black person perform then I'm cool.
If this is true (Reason why he's not performing:Execs).....It's silly, there is no way this man can make a Yankee hat more famous than the Yankees so why not chuckle instead of making him more famous?
I HATE KANYE SO I HAVE CREATED A WEBSITE WHERE U CAN DOWNLOAD ALL HIS SONGS FOR FREE!!! HERE IT IS! http://[SPAM].com
