    Jay-Z is reportedly planning a series of concerts in New York City next year as soon as the New Jersey Nets make their move into their new arena in Brooklyn in the fall of 2012. Don't you love that that New Jersey Nets will make their home in Brooklyn, New York? Only in the NYC tri-state area, right?! Well, the team is actually changing its name to the Brooklyn Nets next year so it's not as crazy as the New York Jets and New York Giants making their arena homes in New Jersey! However, right now, the NBA is in a lockout, so all shit is on hold!

    According to the New York Daily News, the expectant father that is Jay-Z will play eight shows in the new building next year. In an interview with New York's Fox 5, Jay-Z said, "I'm going to open the building with a concert — or a couple of concerts, actually. It's going to be more than about basketball; it's an entertainment arena." Nice!

    Jay played two shows at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx in 2010. He's the all borough king!

    Will you go see Jay-Z in Brooklyn? What about the Nets?
