Last night Friday (September 28),¬†Jay-Z¬†kicked off the opening night of his eight shows at Brooklyn’s newly¬†Barclays Center¬†(the home that he built) and he rocked the stage for a sold out crowd. A little after 10pm,¬†Jay took the stage performing¬†“Where I’m From”.¬†He also covered the late great¬†Biggie Smalls¬†“Kick In The Door”¬†and¬†“Juicy”¬†as an image of Biggie appeared on the hi-res screens. Jay wore a grey Nets cap, black vest, black jeans and a¬†Brooklyn Nets¬†#4 jersey which said “Carter” on the back.

Jay-Z also recited a new verse, “This is Rich Porter part two, You can stunt like that when you’re rich before your debut/Money and the murder, rapper or the trapper, Either way I’m gonna serve ya/Shooters on my team, no really, I got shooters on my team/Juan or Deron, How you n****s want it? Pick an arm/They call me Lucky Lefty, Ball so hard I don’t respect the fucking referees.” The crowd went bananas when Jay-Z rhymed his new verse acapella.

¬†Jay also performed “Big Pimpin”, “Marcyville”, “Hard Knock Life”, Encore” and “What More Can I Say” before bringing out Hip Hop’s legend Big Daddy Kane for “Ain’t No Half Steppin”. Jay-Z then took the stage again to perform his verse to G.O.O.D. Music’s “Clique”. He closed out last night’s show with “Young Forever”. Full recap will be posted sometime this weekend!
