Jay-Z Says Expect No Guest Appearances At Barclays Center Shows


Last night at the NBA 2K13 launch party at the 40/40 Club, Jay-Z spoke to Jeff Rosenthal of Rolling Stone about what to expect from his upcoming eight-day marathon of shows at the opening of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. “No one’s appearing, no one’s performing. It’s Brooklyn! This is my one chance to be selfish,” Jay-Z told the publication.”Can’t I? Can’t I be selfish? Thank you. Just for these eight shows – then I’ll get back to my “Jay-Z & Friends” shows. I get all of these guys to come out for me, so . . .”

Since Jigga pretty much owns the place, Rosenthal asked what is stopping the mogul from doing more than eight shows? “My stamina,” Hov said frankly “When I got to eight, I felt like I would probably fall over from exhaustion. It was just eight shows. Eight shows for H.O. I should do H.O. merchandise! [Slaps his forehead] What the f**k is wrong with me?”

Jay-Z kicks off his eight day marathon of concerts tomorrow night.
