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


Jay-Z and Barclays Center—two big names around Brooklyn that will forever be linked together.

Hov decided to give us a present—on his birthday ironically—in the form of the Barclays documentary Where I’m From. Spanning over 24-minutes, the film takes you back one year before the official first concert at Barclays Center, and details how everything came together from the ground up.

See the sound checks, the backstage shuffle, and Hov’s now-famous train ride to Barclays, all up-close and personal.
