Jay-Z at Barclays Center - 9/29/12 (via Alyonka Larionov)

Jay-Z kicked off his first of eight sold-out shows at Brooklyn's new Barclays Center on Friday (9/28) and has since played his second (9/29) and third (9/30) nights over the weekend. Though Jay said there would be no guests at these shows, he's still been sneaking a few in. As mentioned, Big Daddy Kane was there on night one. Memphis Bleek showed up on Saturday to join him on "Can't Knock the Hustle," "Money Ain't A Thang," "La La La," "Excuse Me Miss," and "You Me, Him & Her." (No guests on night three though.) The setlist was otherwise pretty similar to night one, including a large span of material; everything from Cruel Summer standout "Clique," to his earliest cuts like "Dead Presidents" and huge hits like "Dirt Off Your Shoulder," "99 Problems," "H to the Izzo," "Hard Knock Life," and more.

The run continues tonight (10/1). Videos from Saturday's show are below.
