Well Jigga came out with a new song called "open letter". This is some of the lyrics from the song


Woulda brought the Nets to Brooklyn for free

Except I made millions off it, you f##'king dweeb

I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seats

Y'all buy that BS, you better keep y'all receipt.

("Dweeb" is a slang word for nerd)

Jay-Z is selling his 1/15th of 1% share.

I think Jay Z gave up when he didn't get LBJ on his team.

Don't blame him 1 bit, I would run as fast as I could from that roster.

It is the exact opposite of dissing the Nets.

dude got owned by the nets ownership.

sorry, but it's true.

jay z wanted the allure that came with owning an NBA team. guess what, you invested 300,000. That's not ridiculous by ANY means.

the Nets used him like a puppet to gain popularity in Brooklyn, and Jay-Z is butthurt now.

The diss is about his critics , not the Nets directly. Jesus people....always with the TMZ feel to these threads

i always used to get mad when someone says Jay-Z owned the nets.

I used be like nooo he doesnt. he own less than 1% of the team. its some russian guy name mikell prokorov that owns the team. lol

Now they gonna start saying he owns barclay center :facepalm:

Who cares if Jay Z owns a small portion? He's the biggest figure for the Nets.. Mikhail, yes, he's rich. Now how many people know about him outside the political/basketball fanatics pool? Jay Z is a huge reason why they are the Brooklyn Nets.

How did they use Jay Z? BKYN Nets stocks are increasing because of Jay Z. BKNY Nets stock increases= Jay Z's bank increases as well. They both gained from this but Jay Z is the winner because he has Beyonce.

I just LOL'd b/c yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Jay-Z is going to diss Brooklyn. Jay-Z is from Brooklyn how he gonna diss Brooklyn anything. Everyone that lives in Brooklyn has a certain pride about Brooklyn. The rap was just about people that were saying "Jay-Z owns the Nets" "dumbass and only 1%" and him marking them and saying I made $$$ off of it, I'm so rich I could have done it for free. Keep ya receipt was his lyrical way off talking about their opinions of what he do in business. This should be in the music thread not here. Bringing attention to the Nets for what. :laugh2:

Do you guys not realize that he's selling his share because he's becoming an agent? You can't be an owner and be an agent for players at the same time (just pointing this out, I thought it was pretty self evident...).

i bet you dont know why hes selling his share do you...? hes selling his share because he has started a talent agency and it would be illegal for him to manage athletes and be a part owner of a team at the same time.

in his lyrics, all he is saying, imo, is that he could have brought the Nets to Brooklyn without even being a shareholder, but hes so rich that he was able to make the investment to make even more money. also, that he is one of the main reasons why they moved to Brooklyn (whether true or not) and that he is going to remain a fan of Brooklyn. he isnt dissing Brooklyn...

Then actually, believe half of what you see
None of what you hear even if its spat by me"

the only reason he's selling his share is because he's trying to become an agent. but continue with your ignorant-ridden statements.

krisxsong

How in the world is he a Knicks fan? How many fans of a team have you seen be so involved in a division rival, or any other team for that matter?

Can you see Spike Lee helping the Nets?

Can you see Phil Jackson helping the Clippers?

There was a picture with Jay Z in a Knicks jersey. That does not mean he was a Knicks fan. The guy loves NY and the Knicks were the only team in NY.

He's dissing the Brooklyn natives that opposed Jiggas help in bringing the Nets to Brooklyn. At least thats my take on it.

He's not dissing the nets, When he says he's keeping his seat, he means he's keeping his share

and when he says "Y'all buy that BS, you better keep y'all receipt." he's basically saying that the rumors about selling his share aren't true.

maddBat
04-11-2013, 10:55 PM
what partial owner would diss his own team like that?

for all the people who for some reason dont know this yet-
hes selling his share b/c he is now a sports agent. recently signed robinson cano of the yankees and cruz of the giants. the nba draft is coming up. it would be wise to sell his share b4 then if he wants to pursue basketball players

I think that bolded line refers to the investment in the building and move. I don't see a diss.
