Remember that time Jay-Z took the train to the Barclays Center to perform at his own headlining show? It was for his Where I’m From: Jay-Z Barclays Documentary, which was finally released today, on the BK native’s 43rd birthday.

In just a shade over 24 minutes, Hova’s Life + Times website takes a behind the scenes look at the creation of the rapper/mogul’s sold out opening concert series at the Brooklyn Nets’ new area. Starting over a year ago when the Barclays Center was still under construction, to his bands rehearsal, along with commentary from Jay-Z’s consigliere Young Guru , the mini-doc offers an intimate look at the long journey to making a memorable open run of shows.

Watch ‘Where I’m From,’ below.
