A short documentary about Jay-Z’s connection with Madison Square Garden entitled NY-Z has been released by Absolut Vodka, and premiered online on March 22. According to MTV, Danny Clinch directed the documentary which portrays the highlights of Jay-Z’s career at Madison Square Garden. The September 11 benefit concert was just one of his events at the Garden. Mary J. Blige and John Mayer are two people who performed at the concert.
In the documentary, Mayer recalls how inspired he was when he heard Jay-Z’s song “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)” on the radio. “Very few songs that come on the radio today make me curious,” Mayer stated. He was so inspired that he played the guitar on stage at the benefit concert while Jay-Z performed the song.
Although the film is only 15 minutes long, Jay-Z covers several aspects of his life including his childhood and musical surroundings in Marcy Projects in Brooklyn, NY. It also features clips of rehearsals and behind the scenes footage of him attending a party for the 10 year anniversary of his urban clothing line, Rocawear.
In addition, the rapper discusses his love for collaborations. “I think it’s a great thing when two people come together with two different ideas and two different approaches and they align at the end of the day.”
