Brooklyn's own Jay Z brought the Magna Carter World Tour back home with two performances Sunday and Monday at the Barclays Center.

The entertainment mogul has made quite an impact on Brooklyn, and made sure to do the same on his return home. Spectators took to social media to post pictures and video of the concert, which got rave reviews from those in attendance.

According to the Barclays Center, his legacy was commemorated with gifts that represent "his journey in his personal life and career. "

Barclays Center sought out Brooklyn artist One-9 to design a custom stained wooden piece for Jay Z. The art piece is based on One-9’s signature chess piece collection. The original piece features neighborhoods in Brooklyn that have impacted the "life and times" of Jay Z. The second gift was a custom blue sapphire birthday piece created for Blue Ivy Carter while Beyoncé was at the Barclays last month.

Before his first show on Jan. 12, Barclays Center gifted Jay Z with a Lorraine Schwartz designed leather bracelet with two interlocking blue sapphire B’s, for Beyoncé and Blue Ivy. He wore the bracelet on stage during his shows in Brooklyn.
