Jay Z is selling his minuscule percentage of the Brooklyn Nets for $350K

Jay Z and Robinson Cano

It must be hard being Jay Z these days. The “Brooklyn Go Hard” rapper is struggling to stay relevant while his wife, Beyonce, hogs the spotlight.

Today’s headlines are about Jay Z selling his paltry percentage of the Brooklyn Nets so he can concentrate on his sports management company, Roc Nation Sports.

Jay Z and Robinson Cano

Last week Roc Nation Sports announced it had signed NY Yankees slugger Robinson Cano (pictured above) as its first client. Rumor has it that Jay Z, real name Shawn Carter, 45, has his eye on several NBA players whom he plans to add to his client list. That would put him in direct conflict with the NBA.

His solution is to sell off his absurdly small 0.067% (1/15th of a percent) of the Nets. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Jay Z’s stake in the Nets is only worth about $350,000 — hardly worthy of the headlines this story is generating.

Jay Z was instrumental in promoting the former New Jersey NETS move to Brooklyn. In return for his star power, the Nets and Barclays Center owner gave Jay Z the tiniest sliver of team ownership, which Jigga attempted to parlay into a fake image that he was a full-blown team owner.

In an excellent article titled JAY-Z BARELY OWNS THE NETS AND THAT BARELY MATTERS, Vice.com exposed Jay Z as a fraud who “barely” owns the Nets.

Jay Z responded to the backlash by referring to his minuscule percentage of the Nets as no big deal. But deep down inside, his narcissistic ego was bruised. It wasn’t long before Jay Z came up with the idea of owning his own players — since his money wasn’t long enough to own a team.

“Because of my love of sports, it was a natural progression to form a company where we can help top athletes in various sports the same way we have been helping artists in the music industry for years,” Jay-Z said.

      Probably a conflict if interest to own any percent if a team and be a sports agent. I can guarantee he didn’t buy that for 350K.

      Then his “good friend” LeBron didnt even meet with him as a free agent. Any athlete sign with him is a fool.

      But I wish him luck.

      First off, the industry is not set up to “help” artist. It’s set up to keep them in debt. And second, please tell them again Jenie. All money is NOT good money. Jay seems like a snake in the grass. :tea:

    • Gigi26

      Well let’s be really REAL here….

      Roc Nation other than Rih and Jay himself is not as successful when it comes to artists…it even took awhile for J. Cole to get to where he’s at n that is because Jay puts his projects FIRST :tea: He did the same shyt at Def Jam.

      We’ll see where this sports mgmt thing goes but somethin tells me its gonna blow up in his face.

      It wasn’t long before Jay Z came up with the idea of owning his own players — since his money wasn’t long enough to own a team.

    • Apparition

      That’s a good look for Jay. Timing is a mf, he became pres of Def Jam when folks stopped buying music across the board. Nobody in rap really sells anymore outside of Eminem/Wayne/Kanye/Jay. I don’t see anyone clamoring for any of the artists that complained while he was there.

      when it comes too money too much WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH for Jay Z…

      True when you are your labels biggest artist then it kinda is a wash. Rhianna validates Roc Nation …..yet people clown her. Diddy tried it for years. Bad Boy where are they now? Faces on a milk carton. But I do think Jay-Z is way more talented that Diddles. I just hope he is not trying to do too much beyond his skill set :yes:

      As for Jay-z I don’t think he’s broke. Nets and Jay had a mutually beneficial arrangement. Nets got a lot of exposure with Jay, believe it or not. Jay got a lot of exposure and I’m sure they played a bunch of Roc Natiion music throughout the games, etc. He sold his part of the team so he can open this business.

      im not a jay groupie at all, but the downfall of most of the rappers you all named wasnt Jay-Z. He signed non of them Dame Dash did. Jay-Z was the face of the Roc when they split the consumer fell out of love with all these rappers. The only rapper out of this list that Jay signed was Jay cole who isnt doing bad for himself.

      Not a damn one. But if you read or listen to the stuff Beenie is mad about it’s not Dame. It’s Jay. And we have said on her eseveral times that Diddy uses people and they have ONE album and you never hear from them again. But if we are going to keep dragging Diddy, then I’m going to do the same to Jay-Z. He is about SELF. Period. And really Diddy is a way way way better business man than Jay.

Jay-Z was the face of the Roc when they split the consumer fell out of love with all these rappers. The only rapper out of this list that Jay signed was Jay cole who isnt doing bad for himself.

      Jay signed Rhianna and Neyo how are they holding up (musically) ?

      name artist that puff signed who has had the same impact besides BIG ( and i cant give him the credit for that cause big made puffy?

      Not a damn one. But if you read or listen to the stuff Beenie is mad about it’s not Dame. It’s Jay. And we have said on her eseveral times that Diddy uses people and they have ONE album and you never hear from them again. But if we are going to keep dragging Diddy, then I’m going to do the same to Jay-Z. He is about SELF. Period. And really Diddy is a way way way better business man than Jay.

    • libra80sbaby

      I think Jay has a good eye for artist that can be molded and transformed into whatever is hot for the moment (Rhianna). But artists that are not willing to sell their souls and nix their morals for Hollyweird, he don’t know what to do with them (J Cole, Chrisette Michele). Sports management is a different realm. Jay sit yo azz down somewhere and be a House Husband to Beyonce. :coffee:

      Jay Z had lived off the deals of Dame Dash his entire career.

      He’s a leech. He lived off Foxy Brown using stolen rap flow.

      Then he lived off Damon Dash.

      He was ready to live off Ja Rule on that definct rap group.

      Then he lived off Kanye.

      yall are delusional!!!!!

      they mad at Jay because they broke now, dame mad at jay cause he broke now. the difference between jay and puff is

      Jay carried his own weight, he made it off his talent not his artists talent, when he left the roc he took his talent and his fans who were only buying the other artists music because of jay.

      PUFFY road everyone elses coat tails Puff had one album anyone bought and that was No Way out, and only reason any of us bought that was cause BIG just died. Besides that he signed people did a hook and had a verse they wrote for them on a song, danced through the video and collected on thier publishing.

      That Roc fiasco wouldnt be a issue if he wouldnt have broke with Dame. But liek he said in his Documentary. ” i told dame, im a ****y dude i put up with your ****y attitude, but another harlem ninja will have me walk away” and dame still signed cam and that was that

      so kanye becomes a power producer makes a dope album the roc breaks up and he chooses to cling to Jay and not Dame, thats hov fault

      He marries the number one artist in the world, who happens to have more money than him, thats hov fault tho

      He leaves the Roc becomes a head officer for def jam and signs rhianna and neyo, and Nas but thats hov fault

      He steps down from that and signs a 150 mil contract with Live nation creates Roc nation Grossed $75 mil in tour money but thats Hovs fault
