Just in time for Jay-Z's birthday is this half hour documentary of behind-the-scenes footage chronicling the eight shows he did at Brooklyn's Barclay Center to mark its opening.

In September, Jay-Z returned home to his native Brooklyn and welcomed the newly re-named Brooklyn Nets along with thousands of fans. In this documentary, we see behind-the-scenes footage of sound checks, candid conversations and concert footage. This is a first for Jay-Z, who is typically very careful about releasing behind-the-scenes footage in general.

Young Guru, Jay-Z's DJ and engineer also appears in the documentary and he talks about the elaborate set planned for these shows. He explains that they will be adding a lot more song than most of Jay-Z regular shows include as a tribute to Brooklyn. Stats for Intimate Rapper Documentaries Trending: Older & Chilly
