Watch Jay-Z’s Barclays Center Concert Documentary ‘Where I’m From’


Jay-Z’s arts and culture website Life+Times published the rapper’s 20-minute documentary (which we spotted on EW) that chronicles the behind-the-scenes efforts that went into curating his eight-night concert series at the Barclays Arena. He was the inaugural performer in the newly constructed venue, and the show was his first large-scale concert in his home borough. Jay’s from Marcy Houses. He opened the first show with 1997’s “Where I’m From,” which is also the name of this mini doc that includes clips of Hova on a subway train chatting with riders, rehearsal time, and the team who helped make the massive undertaking possible. Watch it in full past the break.
