"He's the greatest rapper in the world," Goldstein, 35, says. "This is the biggest thing that's happened in my career."
In his first performance since the Sept. 19 Learjet crash that left him with second and third degree burns on his face and left arm, Goldstein will join Jay-Z at the Hollywood Palladium Wednesday.
