HOVIE’S HOME: Jay-Z Kicks Off Brooklyn Barclays Center Concert Series With Beyonce, A New Verse & A NOTORIOUS B.I.G. HOLOGRAM!

Hovie’s home!  The house that Jay built was on fire Friday night as Sean "Jay-Z" Carter kicked off the first night of 8 concerts he’s performing to celebrate the official opening of the brand new Brooklyn Barclays Center. 


Check out his wife Beyonce in the crowd, the new verse he debuted saluting his team the Brooklyn Nets, and the BIGGIE hologram he surprised the crowd with…

In a house packed with 20,000+ folks, Hov gave a memorable concert as he helped the Barclays Center–the arena that he helped executives and developers bring together in his hometown–make its official public debut.

His wife Beyonce was there dancing it up in the crowd, as he opened with "Where I’m From," off his In My Lifetime Vol. 1 album.


Jay was styled in several looks by the fabulous June Ambrose.

He rocked the $ 299 limited edition Brooklyn Nets ‘Carter’ Jersey.  With his fave number 4, of course.

Pharrell, as well as Big Daddy Kane (not pictured), popped up.

And the crowd got a huge surprise as he whipped out a Hologram of Notorious B.I.G.  Clearly this is going to be a trend now.

And finally, check out this new verse Jay spit at the concert tonight to give a preview of something new to come:

"This is Rich Porter, part two/You can stunt like that when you rich before your debut/Money and the murder, rapper or the trapper…either way I’m gon’ serve you/Shooters on my team…/No really, I got shooters on my team/Juan or Deron, how you ni**as want it? Pick a arm/They call me Lucky Lefty/Ball so hard I don’t respect the fu***ng referees.”

Welcome to Jay’s house.

NEW COUPLE ALERT?: Nas & Antonique Smith (Faith Evans In “Notorious”) Grab A Bite

Rumors have been swirling, and now they’re about to swirl a bit harder.   The recently divorced rapper Nas was spotted wining and dining it up with actress Antonique Smith in West Hollywood.  Yep, the same Antonique who portrayed Faith Evans in the Notorious movie.  And the same Antonique he shouted out on his new single "Nasty." 


Pics of the twosome inside….

Looks like Nas may have found another industry chick to keep him company. He hadn’t even met her in person before when he said, "I’m after the actress who played Faith Evans/My little Jackie Onassis, dig?," in his new song "Nasty."  Last month, Antonique told XXL magazine that she wanted to actually meet him in person and maybe "do some music" together:

He shouted me out on the song, which I thought was really sweet. I had never met him before and he called me sometime after that and said that he was initially afraid that I’d be upset about it because he wasn’t sure how I took it, but I thought it was sweet. He’s really nice. Word for word, he’s an incredible rapper. I’ve always been a fan and that line is a really dope line. We’re going to do some music together.

Looks like she got her wish. 



Just a couple weeks ago, Antonique popped up on the Queens set of his new "Nasty" video.  Maybe making a cameo.  Maybe not.  And yesterday they were spotted in these pics having a lunch date.  It could just be all in the name of business.  But we wouldn’t even be mad at her for trying to make it more.  Do you boo.

Here’s the behind-the-scenes video with both of them (she appears at the 0:48 second mark) on the set of "Nasty":


Antonique is appearing in the upcoming movies Abduction (with Taylor Lautner), Yelling To The Sky (with Gabby Sidibe and Zoe Kravitz), "RENT" on Broadway and will also be featured in the upcoming Hollywood Issue of VIBE mag.  Nas’ new solo album will be dropping soon.
