Jay-Z is one Brooklyn boy who’s done good. Middle-aged Hov christened the brand-new Barclays Center (home of the brand-new Brooklyn Nets) with the first of 8 scheduled concerts at the venue on Friday (Sep 28).

Sporting a bubble jacket vest and a Nets hat and jersey, Jigga made the event a Brooklyn affair. He invited Big Daddy Kane for a guest appearance and led the enthusiastic crowd through a cover of Brooklyn icon Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy.”

Other stars in attendance for the big show include his wife, Beyoncé; producer pal Pharrell; Roc Nation signee J. Cole; NBA legend and business mogul Magic Johnson; comedian Dave Chappelle; singer-songwriters The-Dream and Ester Dean; and Hot 97 radio personality Angie Martinez.
