Danny Clinch’s documentary on Jay-Z, "NY-Z," gives a short look at the life of the rap superstar. You can watch the doc, all 15 minutes of it, below.
A collaboration between Absolut, Facebook and Madison Square Garden, the black-and-white film follows Jay-Z as he muses on “The Blueprint 3” and being an adult in hip-hop and his thoughts about being a native New Yorker through his Sept. 11 MSG benefit, Answer the Call, which raised funds for 9/11 widows of first responders.
Do you learn anything new about Hova? No, but for fans, it’s a nice look into the way he works. Plus we see how he collaborates with John Mayer.
If you want the shorter version, here’s a link to our previous story about the documentary that features the trailer.
