Backstage With Jay-Z at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center

Jay-Z kicked off his eight-night residency at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Friday, Sept 28. The hip-hop A-list came out for what was the inaugural concert at the new 19,000-capacity arena, home to the Brooklyn Nets. Pharrell, Beyonce and more got down at the show, while others like Dave Chappelle and Irv Gotti made it out to the D’USSE Cognac after party at the 40/40 Club. Check out photos from the festivities after the jump.
