HOVIE'S HOME: Jay-Z Kicks Off Brooklyn Barclays Center Concert Series With Beyonce, A New Verse & A NOTORIOUS B.I.G. HOLOGRAM!

Hovie's home!  The house that Jay built was on fire Friday night as Sean "Jay-Z" Carter kicked off the first night of 8 concerts he's performing to celebrate the official opening of the brand new Brooklyn Barclays Center. 


Check out his wife Beyonce in the crowd, the new verse he debuted saluting his team the Brooklyn Nets, and the BIGGIE hologram he surprised the crowd with...

In a house packed with 20,000+ folks, Hov gave a memorable concert as he helped the Barclays Center--the arena that he helped executives and developers bring together in his hometown--make its official public debut.

His wife Beyonce was there dancing it up in the crowd, as he opened with "Where I'm From," off his In My Lifetime Vol. 1 album.


Jay was styled in several looks by the fabulous June Ambrose.

He rocked the $299 limited edition Brooklyn Nets 'Carter' Jersey.  With his fave number 4, of course.

Pharrell, as well as Big Daddy Kane (not pictured), popped up.

And the crowd got a huge surprise as he whipped out a Hologram of Notorious B.I.G.  Clearly this is going to be a trend now.

And finally, check out this new verse Jay spit at the concert tonight to give a preview of something new to come:

"This is Rich Porter, part two/You can stunt like that when you rich before your debut/Money and the murder, rapper or the trapper…either way I’m gon' serve you/Shooters on my team.../No really, I got shooters on my team/Juan or Deron, how you ni**as want it? Pick a arm/They call me Lucky Lefty/Ball so hard I don’t respect the fu***ng referees.”

Welcome to Jay's house.

Congrats to Jay-Z this is a

Congrats to Jay-Z this is a big accomplishment for a African American male. Really smart not only did he build it in Brooklyn and brought the NETS there he bring all kind of venues there as well. They can have concerts, circus, etc. There is a lot of money to make there. Very smart

I don't know 1% of a billions

I don't know 1% of a billions sound bike a whole lot to me. And you guys need to use your brains like Jay does, sometimes it's not about the money now but what the invest will yield in the future. You guys think jay let this. Billionaire use him???? Come one guys this was the smartest play, let jay be the face of Barclays. Not only is a New Yorker but from bk and a success. Stop coming on these blogs stating opnions based n ur feeling and not facts

Congrats to Jay this is a HUGE accomplishment for all you haters questioning his one percent stake, clearly y'all don't know nada about business suppose bill gates offered you one percent of his billions are you going to say no because it is one percent ..... iDIOTS I swear! Anyhow Congrats JayZ. And about him retiring umm check out all the rock legends who are still telling the rock industry ask Bono, jagger (sp), Springsteen to retire smh yeah I thought so. Rap/hip hop has grown and to only have a young generation (of idiots IMO ie lil Wayne and the rest of the "lil" brains) out there reppin is a disgrace to those who built the hip hop foundation. Just saying this is just my opinion. Oh sorry for typos if any my stupid iPad does the most.

You said it all! #pow These

You said it all! #pow These haters get to typing away on their computers and they probably won't have 1 percent of the FORTUNE Jay has in their lifetime. As if this is his ONLY investment. If that's the case, he wouldn't be atop the Forbes list. I'm sure he and his beautiful wife are edging close to a combined wealth of a billi which will only make the haters SEETHE even more.

Aww, you're mad? I'd rather

Aww, you're mad? I'd rather be someone who celebrates someone else's success than a downright hater. Besides, when you're blessed (as I am) you don't need to tear other people apart. People like yourself and others are just unhappy and it's reflected in your hatred. Jealousy is a WEAK emotion.

i know EVERYTHING about

i know EVERYTHING about business. The Russian Billionaire who tossed Camel a bone (or Scooby Snack) isn't offering Camel 1% of his Billions...he USED CAMEL as a FRONT to move the Nets to Brooklyn and get a brand spanking new ARENA. Camel paid for 1% of the Nets. And Jay still raps about idiot stuff like hoes & bitches at age 45 <------- he'd sell CRACK to yo momma for a dollar b/c he's done it before. Outkast raps about social issues and is on a deep level.......NOT Camel. ..........................

Since the stadium is

Since the stadium is literally 3 blocks from my house, I got to witness some of the insanity on my way home from my office yesterday. Considering what goes on at the West Indian Day parade EVERY year, I'm just surprised nobody got shot/killed. Then again, we still have 7 concerts to go. Ugh!

At least the Russian

At least the Russian Billionaire is allowing Jay to use the building (for around $250,000) And jay is making Bey-Z sit in the seats again b/c RiRi is in town and gets backstage honors (the stuff Bey-Z puts up with...........smdh).................

Poor Pharrell! He used to look like the eternal teenager, but these days he's looking a little worn down and worn out. Whatchu going thru FaReal?

"The house JAY BUILT????"

"The house JAY BUILT????" Really Natasha, since when did owning 1/15 of 1% of something make you the "BOSS???"I believe that ARENA was built by Mikhail Dmitrievitch Prokhorov! If B.I.G. (RIP) was alive, he WOULDN'T support Jay or ANYTHING he was associated with! Jay, please cover up them CAMEL LUMPS ARMS...I would ask you to ACT your AGE, but you might COMBUST and TURN INTO ASHES!

You're an idiot. Please

You're an idiot. Please expand your reading material beyond The YBF. It's a play on words you imbecile from an article written in The New York Times magazine called 'The House That Hova Built". So I assume a publication as reputable as them also got it wrong?
Elle's picture


Well, EXCUSE ME DUMBA$$, I don't give a damn if GOD himself wrote an article called "The House Hova Built" it's still a FALSE STATEMENT...Now go to Brooklyn, find the Barclays Center and have about 20,000 seats!!

Jay goes so hard for the legends like Biggie and 2pac and they didn't even like his ass lol. Brooklyn Barclays Center hmm... yup I'm not gonna go there. When will he officially retire from rap I wonder, when he's 60?

He really thinks he's Mr. Big Shot talking bout "I got shooters on my team, no really I got shooters on my team". Boy bye!!! That's not your team Mr. 1 percenter. It seems like Beyonce's thieving ass is always at his shows. Does he ever go to hers. They both suck. Anywho....
