Rap stars Jay Z and Kanye West take to the stage at SXSW during the iTunes Festival.

Fans at the 4,600 seat space cheered as the legendary rappers presented old and new songs. West and Jay-Z performed collaborations including “Watch the Throne and “No Church in the Wild” from 2011's Watch the Throne, according to the Associated Press.

Jay Z performed new solo songs like “Tom Ford,” “Magna Carta…Holy Grail,” and older material like “Empire State of Mind,” “Dirt off Your Shoulder,” and “Big Pimpin.'”

The rappers have joined forces at Jay Z’s Roc Nation, which will be working with production for West’s Donda Music.

West released the word that his upcoming film, Yeezus, will be coming to movie theaters.

In the meantime, visuals for last night’s show were off the chart, dazzling audiences with lazers and ambient light, according to Billboard.
