Jay-Z Coming to Oprah’s New Network

Oprah Winfrey is calling in all the heavyweights to launch her new television network, OWN, including rap legend Jay-Z. The hip-hop icon will appear on Oprah’s channel , as the subject of her new series Master Class.

During the one hour episode, Jay will open up about his humble beginnings in Brooklyn’s Marcy projects and tell stories about his rise to fame, while offering insight into the important lessons he learned on his way to the top.

The show is set to air at 2 p.m. as well as 7 p.m. EST tomorrow (January 1).

Tonight Jay and his buddy Chris Martin will be ringing in the new year together, as they are scheduled to share a stage in Las Vegas. Hov and Coldplay will both have their own solo sets during a three-day concert event celebrating the opening of the Cosmopolitan Casino and Resort. —Elan Mancini
