Brooklyn stand up! The borough’s own, Jay-Z, now has his own exhibit in town that you can visit and learn more about the rapper.

Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Library has just unveiled it’s newest exhibit The Book of HOV. According to the museum’s website, the exhibit “thousands of archived objects, including original recording masters, never-before-seen photos, iconic stage wear, prestigious awards and recognitions, as well as videos and artifacts from every facet on Jay-Z’s professional life.”

The entire project was kept a secret from Jay and his wife Beyoncé until the day before it opened.

There is no projected end date of the exhibit, however branch director Christine Schonhart anticipated it would be open through the fall.
