Boy, am I exhausted but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The highlight of my weekend was attending JayZ’s concert at the new Barclay Center arena-the new home of the Brooklyn Nets, formerly the New Jersey Nets. The center officially opened with a concert on Friday, the 28th by no other than the Brooklyn King himself. I attended the third performance last night. He was accompanied my an 8 piece band plus dj which made the experience even more epic. He performed several of his hits from his very first album-Reasonable Doubt to current. The crowd rapped along to “Encore, Big Pimpin’, Bonnie a& Clyde” and many more hits. The arena is gorgeous and security was on-point for the most part. Everyone was there for the same reason-to represent Brooklyn and to support JayZ. As the beat for “Empire State of Mind” came on, you couldn’t help but feel the Brooklyn pride in the arena. I, myself, am from Harlem, which is nothing but a 30minute train ride away but last night, I was a Brooklynite.
In keeping with the new team color of black and white, I sported a casual ensemble of coated leggings, varsity jacket and my JC Litas.
