Last night was night four of Jay-Z’s string of shows at the newly opened Barclays Center, home of his co-owned Brooklyn Nets. As on the other nights, Jay took a break from the music to give a motivational speech midway through the set.

Jay talked with the crowd about bringing a basketball franchise to Brooklyn, being told that he’ll never be as good as LL Cool J and the lost future of Earl “The Goat” Manigault. Check out the video up above.
