JAY-Z re-opened New York City's Webster Hall on Friday night for a B-sides show and shared a new freestyle.

Jay Z performed a new freestyle at the B-Sides show.

"Gentrify your own hood before these people do it.
Claim eminent domain and have your people move in.
That's a small glimpse into what Nipsey was doing.
For anybody still confused as to what he was doing."
