I say damn! With high quality video like this, why would anyone spend a G on a pair of tickets to see Jay-Z in Brooklyn? That’s sarcasm, by the way. The energy of a live Jigga show gives you chills. The clean quality of some clips released by Life + Times is pretty impressive though. Full screen the vid in a dark room and it’s almost like experiencing the real thing.

Hova did eight shows to open the new Brooklyn Nets arena, The Barclays Center back in September. Didn’t make it? No worries. Jay plans on returning to the venue to close out 2012. Jay will team up with his BFF Chris Martin’s band Coldplay for a joint show.

Get a little taste of what Jay brings to the stage with this clip as he performs “Dead Presidents” and “Can I Live?”.
