The Jay-Z Fast Food Jukebox at Brooklyn’s Buffalo Boss


While waiting for my fiery chicken wings at Buffalo Boss (read the review here ), the new wing joint at least partly owned by Jay-Z, I got to wondering, What should the music be at a place owned by Brooklyn’s most respected hip-hop artist and businessman? Rap, of course, but what kind of rap? The genre has become as diversified as indie rock, meaning that, even in a fast-food place, you’ve got to specialize. The first song I heard was Usher’s “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” (featuring Pitbull). Listen on for the next three songs I heard on the Jay-Z Fast Food Jukebox as I waited.

Next up, “Higher” by Taio Cruz (featuring Travis McCoy)

And then, in a bit of a surprise, “Animal,” by Neon Trees.

And, finally, as my order arrived and I slipped out the door, Chris Brown, “Yeah 3X.”
