YouTube will live stream the last of Jay-Z's eight performances at 9:30 p.m. EST on the Life + Times channel on Saturday, Oct. 6.
The Life + Times channel is one of YouTube's latest initiatives to offer original content.
Life + Times will offer "in depth lifestyle pieces" based on Jay-Z's tastes and interests. It is an offshoot of his Life + Times blog.
Life+Times will feature content unrelated to music: a fan-interaction show "Roc Nation Check-In" and "Well Dunn With Jourdan Dunn," which documents the successful British supermodel.
A documentary, "Road To Brooklyn," which focuses on the process of how the New Jersey Nets were brought to Brooklyn, is one of many projects that will make its debut on Life + Times.
Jay-Z's Life + Times YouTube channel, is a joint collaboration with Iconic TV.
"His philosophy has always been to do things out of the box, do them first, do them in a surprising way," said IconicTV's founder, Michael Hirschorn told USA Today.
"I think that's one of the main reasons he has kept his brand as fresh and robust as he has because he's constantly surprising the public with what he's doing. We're approaching this channel and programming it, not at the level of an MTV or a BET - at least, not yet - but really programming it as a real channel that will have regular content, some featuring him, some under his creative direction."
The rapper first christened the Barclays Center at its opening on Friday, Sept. 28 for the first of eight concerts in a row featuring himself.
The Barclays Center is the new home of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets team, which Jay-Z is a minority owner.
Construction for Brookyn's 18,000 seat arena began in 2009.
Barbara Streisand, Rihanna, Smashing Pumpkins and other top artists are scheduled to appear in the coming year.
