Jay-Z Relinquishes Brooklyn Nets Stake But He’s Still Sitting Courtside At The Nets Vs Bulls Playoff Game

jaycourtside

And I could blame my environment but there ain’t no reason why I be buying expensive chains,” rapped Jay-Z on “Public Service Announcement“. Earlier in the week, Jay-Z relinquished his Brooklyn Nets stake but he’s still keeping his seat. He is one of the few celebs who are often seated court side at basketball games, especially during the playoffs. Speaking of the playoffs, Jay-Z is currently sitting court side at the Barclays Center for Game 1 of the Brooklyn Nets vs the Chicago Bulls series. He styled in a black Rich Kids “HOOLIGANS” crew sweatshirt with black jeans. His outfit was accessorized with a Just Don Nets snakeskin snapback and Charles Barkley’s Nike Air Force 180 “Phoenix Suns” sneakers. Barkley wore these sneakers when he played for the Suns. There’s no denying that Jay-Z is addicted to expensive chains!

Jay-Z renounced his owner of the team; excerpts below:  

Being a member of the Nets organization surpassed some of my greatest ambitions. It was never about an investment; it was about the NETS and Brooklyn. My job as an owner is over but as a fan it has just begun. I’m a Brooklyn Net forever. It’s been an honor to work with Mikhail Prokhorov, Dmitry Razumov, Christophe Charlier, ONEXIM Sports and Entertainment, Brett Yormark and all the wonderful people involved in making the Nets first class. My sincerest thanks goes to Bruce Ratner, who first introduced the idea of moving the Nets to Brooklyn. A thank you and deepest appreciation goes to the fans. You are the lifeblood of any team.

The Nets have made their mark on the NBA and as they enter a new era, Roc Nation does as well; as we embark on Roc Nation Sports. Our newest endeavor is committed to building the brands of professional athletes as we have done for some of today’s top music artists. For Roc Nation Sports to function at its full potential, NBA rules stipulate that I relinquish my ownership in the Brooklyn Nets. It was a tough decision but as I stated earlier, it’s not about ownership. Congratulations to The Nets on a great season and making the playoffs! I will always be a Brooklyn Net.

Rising Chicago rapper Spenzo is in New York City making his promo rounds and attending industry events. The other day, paparazzi snapped pics of him on the red carpet at the EPIX premiere of Amar’e Stoudeamire’s In The Moment film during the Tribeca Film Festival. For the occasion, Spenzo kept it casual in a $95 Polo Ralph Lauren Classic Fleece Hoodie with the matching tee-shirt and $110 Drawstrings Athletic Sweatpants. His outfit was completed with a Just Don ‘Bull’ Snakeskin Snapback and Air Jordan sneakers. Is Spenzo still in the middle of a bidding war? Did he sign to Atlantic Records? I am not too sure but I can attest that this 17-year old Chi-Town emcee had a meeting with the label a couple of months ago. The big names in the room included Michael Kyser, Lyor Cohen and Julie Greenwald. Earlier in the week, Spenzo was photo’d with Diddy and Rick Ross. Did they have a meeting and are they interested in signing him? I don’t know, Lol but I do know that Spenzo’s mentors L.E.P. Bogus Boys recently signed to Geffen Records via Gee RobinsonExpect an announcement soon!
