Oprah Winfrey‘s brand new TV network, aptly titled the “Oprah Winfrey Network,” or simply “OWN,” launched on New Year’s Day (Sat. Jan 1) in the United States, and among the many shows included in the cable channel’s initial line-up is a documentary series called “Oprah Presents: Master Class.”

The first episode of “Master Class” chronicled Jay-Z‘s rise to success, and featured the rapper as he showed Oprah around his old stomping grounds in the Marcy Projects of Brooklyn, New York City. Future episodes of the show will feature poet Maya Angelou, iconic actor Sidney Poitier and media-maven Diane Sawyer.

Check out Jay-Z’s episode below!
