In New York City, music fans rejoiced at the grand re-opening of the famed, Webster Hall, with an epic concert headlined by none other than, JAY Z. The venue had hosted its last show in August of 2017. But Brooklyn Sports Entertainment Global (BSE) acquired Webster Hall in partnership with The Bowery Presents. Together, they decided to celebrate the grand re-opening with a historic concert. And who better than one of NYC’s music icons.
The sold-out crowd was in for a special treat as Hov brought some friends with him to surprise concert goers. Including fellow New Yorkers, Nas, Cam’ron and Jim Jones. “Nas is my brother, Cam is my brother,” Jay proclaims, confirming that all is well despite past feuds. It was truly a joyous moment in New York Hip Hop, and Hip Hop, overall.
Also using the opportunity to perform a new freestyle, Jay paid tribute to the late, Nipsey Hussle, highlighting the work he did for his community.

"Gentrify your own hood before these people do it.
Claim eminent domain and have your people move in.
That's a small glimpse into what Nipsey was doing.
For anybody still confused as to what he was doing."

Also, throughout the night, Jay can be seen rocking the iconic Roc-A-Fella chain.
