Watch Jay-Z's Barclays Center Mini-Documentary 'Where I'm From'

We finally we get to hear his conversation with that nice lady on the subway
 / 

Jay-Z's return to Brooklyn wasn't just an eight-night stint. Not only is he already returning to the Barclays Center for New Year's Eve with Coldplay, but video of his grand opening stretch has made its way into an iTunes "optic EP" and now a 24-minute YouTube documentary short, Where I'm From.

The new clip gives some background on Brooklyn's new arena, shows Hova rehearsing with his band and gives nearly complete looks at performances of "Clique," "Where I'm From," and "U Don't Know." Jay made plenty of headlines when he opted to ride the subway to his final gig, and now we finally get to hear his chat with that kind lady blissfully unaware she was talking to the Jiggaman himself. Hov also marvels at the arena's proximity to 560 State St., the former stash spot he shouts out in "Empire State of Mind" and revisited this autumn (read Fuse's firsthand account from the current tenant here!).

All in all, a great mini-doc. And nice timing—it's Jay's 43rd birthday. Cheers, Mr. Carter.

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
