Jay-Z has finally finished his marathon man like 8 show concert series breaking in the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. His web-zine covers the good and the bad of the storied construction. Peep their description:

“JAY Z’s Life + Times follows the final leg of The Nets’ storied journey to Brooklyn. This docu-series captures all the excitement and anticipation as the borough welcomes the first major franchise since the Dodgers moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1957. It’s history in the making as Jay-Z re-imagines the Nets–we’ll bring you everything from the Brooklynette tryouts to a sneak-peak at The Barclays Center, celebrity interviews and reaction from the locals.

In the premiere episode of ROAD TO BROOKLYN, (Down By The Yards), Life+Times looks at how the Barclays Center arena and new home of the Brooklyn Nets arena came to become a fixture in the borough.”
