Barclays Center, the night Rush was there (more by Fred Pessaro)
Barclays Center

Speaking of the rusty Barclays Center (where we caught Neil Young and Patti Smith last night), Jay-Z just posted a 25 minute documentary about the new home of the Nets, entitled "Where I'm From: JAY Z Barclays Center Documentary" to YouTube. You can watch it, footage of Jay in the subway included, below...

Jay already played the venue eight times, and does so again on New Year's Eve.

"Where I'm from"... LOL
He's from the same borough, that's about it. He's no longer "from" there.

Nobody in Brooklyn cares about Jay-Z. You've become a parody, bud. Time to retire, for real this time.

Did he post this from his swanky Tribeca duplex? If he loves BK so much, why did he move out?

this video is so sad. dude takes money from all the kids that can barely afford to buy his records in marcy and then makes it impossible for them to live in bk by helping raise the price of everything in downtown.

It's nice to hear people speaking the truth about this guy. You couldn't pay me to listen to his music or watch his stupid video.

Thank you Jay Z for making rent on Marcy Ave. ridiculously high! Now everyone has to move to Bushwick, and those Marcy projects you grew up in will be high rise luxury condos within 15 years! You're the man. I'm sure the kids in the neighborhood will love your $500,000 a night luxury boxes. Stop acting like you're for the people. All you care about is your bank account. Same as when you sold crack. Same now.

Buy from ebay, the worlds largest and most trusted auction site. Pay with paypal and eliminate any security issues with your credit card.

I get it, being an intolerant prick and hating a thoughtful man is the new not being an intolerant prick and hating a thoughtful man.
