Jay-Z Sells Out Madison Square Garden

Jay-Z’s concert

at Madison Square Garden sold out in a matter of hours on Saturday September

27th.

Tickets for the

November 25th show went on sale at 9am and were sold out by 5pm.

The concert is

the beginning of Jay-Z’s retirement and will help hype the release of his final

solo album, The Black Album.

In addition to

The Black Album, he will drop a Black sneaker and his autobiography,

"The Black Book," which will be written by journalist Dream Hampton.

"Originally,

he wanted everything to be pre-Reasonable Doubt to kind of tell that

story," Hampton told AllHipHop.com. "But as we got into it, we realized

it was important to talk about this nine-year career that he’s had."

Hampton said that

writing the book has been a challenge, since Jay is a very private person.

"He’ll talk

about some current events," Hampton continued. "He’ll address the

[alleged] Roc-A-Fella split, his relationship with his girlfriend. It’s a challenge

to do a book on somebody – quite frankly – with so much dignity."

The Black Album

hits stores on Black Friday, November 28th.
