Photos: Jay-Z arriving on the Barclays Center plaza, ushered to entrance by police before final show

AYR paparazzi edition: Jay-Z took the subway this evening to the Barclays Center for his eighth and final show (live streaming) tonight.

According to the photographer, Mr. Carter exited not from the subway entrance on the arena plaza but from the N/R train platform at Pacific Street and Fourth Avenue.

It's not clear what entourage Jay-Z had on the subway, but when he arrived at the arena plaza, at about 6:15 pm, he picked up a major police escort on his way to the VIP entrance. Still, as shown in the photo at bottom, he attracted a crowd.
