Jay-Z will launch his personal YouTube channel, Life+Times, Saturday night with a live stream of his final show at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The busy rapper/businessman opened the venue last week and will perform eight sold-out shows (it’s also the home of the newly transported Brooklyn Nets, in which Jay is a minority owner).
USA Today first reported the story that Jay’s new channel, an offshoot of his personal blog of the same name, will also feature original video content including “The Road to Brooklyn,” about the Nets, and the fan interaction show, “Roc Nation Check-In.”
Saturday’s stream begins at 9:30 p.m.
