Before TIDAL’s 10/20 concert last night, Jay Z stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which is filming in Brooklyn this week, for and interview and performance of “Empire State of Mind.” He also gifted the entire studio audience with tickets to the TIDAL concert as well.

Throughout, Jay talks about how Brooklyn has changed since he grew up, the best pizza in Brooklyn, rapping with Biggie and Busta Rhymes in high school, TIDAL and more. Is it me or did Jay seem bright as hell being in Brooklyn? Shit, I would be too.

Watch the interview above, and watch Jay Z perform the five-year-old tune (which I still jam out to, for some reason) at the TIDAL concert below.
