Trailer for Jay-Z's concert doc NY-Z, plus how to watch the film for free

03.06.2010

On September 11, 2009, Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z took over Madison Square Garden in New York City - selling about 20,000 tickets in a matter of minutes - for his "Answer the Call" concert, a commemoration of the 9/11 attacks and a tribute to the city itself where all proceeds went to the New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund.

The concert itself was also shot and documented by photographer and filmmaker Danny Clinch (a former intern of photographer Annie Leibovitz and director of Pearl Jam's concert doc of their 2006 Italian tour entitled IMMAGINE IN CORNICE). Funded by ABSOLUT Vodka, the concert doc NY-Z chronicles the event, Jay-Z's on-stage performance, and the city of New York, shot in elegant black and white photography reminiscent of the rapper's past music videos like "99 Problems" and the more recent "Empire State of Mind".

Below is a brief trailer for NY-Z. And if you're interested in catching the doc itself, it will be premiering March 22nd, for free, on ABSOLUT's Facebook page. Simply become a fan RIGHT HERE in order to gain access.

Extra Tidbit: Even though I personally feel ABSOLUT vodka goes down like absolute swill, this all seems like it's been done for a good cause. I can get behind that. But if you want a moderately-priced vodka alternative, I suggest Svedka or Pinnacle. And no, I've never tried Jay-Z's vodka Armadale.

Not the best

jay-Z isn't a bad rapper but he is not even close to being the best. And yes he is just like every other rapper out there. A couple of his songs are alright. He's just a great business man.
