Jay-Z On Ownership Criticism At Barclays

On the third show last night at the Barclays Center, Hov put his hits on pause to address jabs regarding his ownership percentage of the Brooklyn Nets. Fittingly, he then goes into ”99 Problems”. Your criticism ain’t one.

    Jay owns a smidget compared to that Russian motherfucker who owns majority of the team. Jay is not Mark Cuban.

  • the real kunta kente

    a smidget aleast that nigga owns got some people that aint own they own home

  • Brooklyn Finest

    We know Jay don’t own as much as the Russian but to move this team to Brooklyn is a accomplishment in its self. Not to disregard the paper he making off of merchandise the 40/40 and also giving jobs to dudes in the community that other places wouldn’t dare to give a job too. Again it’s a win for King Hov and the haters pray he will give up and finally let them get shine #GTFOH

  • nice

    he dont need to address the haters they have too much jobless time on their hands

    Leave Jay-Z alone ! 42y0, rich, classics albums, a beautiful wife AND he’s still on top.

  • the real kunta kente

    kunta kete #get lost dude

  • Lundy

    Ur not losing if u own A “smidget” percentage of a multi million dollar business

  • Kunta Kente

    @therealkuntakente Get off my dick fuck boy! Try thinking bout some females faggot

  • Kunta Kente

    Who said Jay was losing? But he got his face everywhere like he owns the whole fucking franchise. Nelly owned more of the Bobcats before Jordan came and bought him out.

  • Black Shady

    LMAO now that people cracking jokes at him…its “not about him…its about us”???? HA! ok Jay….righttttttttttttttt

    but in that whole blueprint III it was about you huh. LOL

  • michelle michelle

    Anyone who spends time dissing Jay is really wasting their energy. Too many facts working against you, pick a more attainable goal.

  • Genesis

    Hate all the fuck you want to… Hov is rich, married to a bad bitch (Sorry Lupe) , and even with a stitch of an NBA team, still taking shits upon your whole life…. Mine too…. Difference is I’m inspired by it, while you ignorant fucks covet everything that man has…. Stop breaking commandments, and get off ya ass and get you something….. I’m out…. Fuck y’all….

  • Bill Gates & Warren Buffett

    Who the fuck is Jay-Z??? We can buy the whole leauge and still have money to blow. Give some of blacks a little money and all of sudden niggers think they special.

  • Mitt Romney

    @MichelleMichelle No wonder your single with 4 kids

  • Jaz-O

    @GENESIS So your inspired by someone did his friends and buisness partners dirty just make sure he was on top?

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    Haha dudes are undervaluing Jay’s role to the BK NETS smh.

  • Nathaniel

    niggas sound like clowns in the back like “but he only owns a small percentage of that NBA franchise, though.”

    i’m willing to bet Black owners are the only NBA owners niggas actually research to find out exactly how much they own, just so they can come with the shade umbrella to block that shine.

    what is your purpose?

  • Bill Gates & Warren Buffett

    @zoom Not at all… He’s the most important value of the Nets but for marketing only. Nets using Jay-Z for image not his money. But that man has not that much power in that franchise he makes zero decisons in the team. He sole purpose is image and marketing.

  • Forbes

    Jay-Z only got 440 Million if he sales ALL his buisneses.

  • Beyonce’s Pussy

    Jay-Z too old to be making babies… or music

  • http://www.olujay.com Lulu

    Hahaha look they never thought a young black man will dress like this and be worth 500 million plus shit plus Bey that’s a billi! We don’t listen to the media we listen to our hiphop elders ! Hov is our Hope young black brothers ,this is what we should aspire to be like or close to it and we good worldwide.Just think about our image from a Global perspective and realize.Peace brothers.

  • Slick

    He may only own 1 fifteenth of a percent but ya’ll ain’t paying attention to what he parlayed that into. There’s a 40/40 and a roca wear store in the Barclays center. The got 8 suites in there they charge 800k a year for but he gets one free. The nba 2k13 shit comes from his ownership connects. Whatever he paid he’s making back in spades

  • Hoffa

    Taking the time out of his busy mogul NBA franchise owner lifestyle to address “haters” at 45 years old. You’re so rich but what a critic has to say still bothers you tho

  • mac DIESEL

    SURPRISED JAY SAID SOMETHIN’ ABOUT THAT SHIT!!!! HE USUALLY LETS HIS SUCCESS DO ALL THE TALKIN’!!!!

    ……HA!!!! I’M PRETTY HIS “SMALL” OWNERSHIP OF THE TEAM COMES WITH MANY MANY PERKS!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • Nickey Negrito

    So what to what Jay has. Look at his accomplishments. Born in poverty and probably going to die wealthy.

    GET YO SHIT TOGETHER PEOPLE!

    “Follow My Footsteps You Can’t Fail” -Hov… You can be just like Jay-Z! All you have to do is sell you soul, market a false lifestyle to the kids, take credit for others achievments, and last but not least throw your diamonds in the air!

  • Greatest In The Game

    Drake will surpass him by a longshot. In every aspect.

  • Siy@

    FIRST OF ALL LETS GET ONE THING STRIAGHT … NOT EVERYONE WHO COMMENTS ON JAY-Z IN A NEGATIVE WAY IS HATING. ITS A FACT HE ONLY OWNS 1% AND THERES NOTHING YOU JAY-Z FANS CAN DO ABOUT THAT COZ YOL DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY YOLS FANTACY DADDY ANOTHER %.

    JAY-Z IS BEING USED LIKE ALOT OF PPL (BLACK, WHITE) FOR HIS IMAGE WHILE THE BIG DOGS CASH IN ON HIM … THEY (THE WHITES) USING JAY-Z TO GET MORE MONEY OUT OF THE NETS COZ THEY KNOW VERY WELL WITHOUT JAY-Z PPL LIKE Brooklyn Finest WOULDNT GIVE A FUCK ABOUT A WACK TEAM THAT HASNT MADE THE PLAYOFFS IN A WHILE … THE FACT THAT PPL LIKE Brooklyn Finest THINK THAT EVERYONE WHO WAS EMPLOYED UNDER THE NAME NJ NETS HAS BEEN FIRED AND JOBS GIVEN TO BROOKLYN NATIVES IS LAUGHABLE.

    ITS MARKETING BRILLIANCE, ITS CALLED REINVENTING A DEAD PRODUCT TO GET THE SLOW SHEEPS BUYING AGAIN … AND EVERYONE WINS JAY-Z GETS TO FRONT LIKE HE THE MAJORITY OWNER AND MOVE MAKER, AND THE WHITE GUYS LAUGH ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK.
    IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME JAY-Z FANS ARE JUST NOT SMART ENOUGH TO SEE HIS BEING USED FOR HIS IMAGE.
    PUT A FAMOUS FACE ON A CAN OF A WACK COLA N PPL WILL BUY IT FOR THAT FACE ALONE, 99c OF THE $1 CAN GOES TO THE BIG BOYS AND 1c GOES TO THE DRAWING CARD (JAY-Z).

    TIPICAL AMERICANS … YOL SPEND CRAZY AMOUNTS ON COFFEE AT STARBUCKS WHEN YOL CAN WAY BETTER AMAZING COFFEE FOR 10% THE PRICE AT AN ITALIAN CORNER SHOP LOL … BUT THE DRAWING CARD IS THE STARBUCKS LOGO SO YOL FALL FOR IT LOL … WE NEVER STOP LAUGHING AT YOL WHEN YOL THINK THE IPHONE IS THE NEXT BEST THING WITH ITS 8MP CAMERA IN 2012 COZ ITS AN APPLE PRODUCT.

    LOL U AMERICANS KILL ME WITH LAUGHTER I LOVE IT

  • EMCEE COMPANY

    IDK WHAT Y’ALL THOUGHT OF THE VIDEO, BUT ALL I KNOW IS THAT…THAT STAGE SET-UP IS NIIIIIIIIIIIIICE! SO DOPE!

  • Nickey Negrito

    @siy, whether Jay is the face product or not. He figured how to make it.

    Yall call it “selling ya soul.” Well every body who needs money for food clothing and shelter has sold their soul. Why? Because we all believe in money. We gave an “idea” life and it rules our world aka our mind.

    So all you conspiracy spillers dwell on that.

    I bet the government is the most legitimate folks in the world right? But Jay is the devil? Gtfoh

  • Your Life Is A Lie

    “We”? Maybe all the rich hipsters that have pushed out the poor/working people out of Brooklyn

  • casper21

    Yes jay owns 1% and that may even be rounded up, there are 4 or 5 major owners that own a significantly higher percentage, the largest belonging to the russian, and the franchise is worth over 300 million, but that may be wrong, it might only be over 100m but either way its nithing to argue over, his investment in the team is menial

  • Queens Get The Money

    Jay-Z owns 1.4% of the Net lmao… I swear Jay-Z fans make me sick. Jay-Z didn’t get rich because he’s smart, he got rich beacuse his fan base is fucking stupid… He’s not inivator he just nigga who signs on to shit and gets distributed by. The nigga that signs Jay-Z checks is the real fucking boss. All of Jay-Z companies are distributed by a bigger company.

  • Siy@

    @ Nickey Negrito
    I dont know what you talkin about buddy i did not call Jay-Z a sell out … and owning 1% of sumthing is not figuring out how to make it.
    And yo goverment devil thing … that was quiet a wierd post rumbling on about nothing.

    I’v noticed you Jay-Z fans do that alot to run away from stuff, mentioning the devil and that he has a baby n a wife to focus on lol … i never said anything about selling out and devils lol.

    What a wierd fellow you are lol

  • Drizzy Drake Signed The Right Deals

    Its all one big marketing plan thats all it is people. Ask any black kid in the hood right now who the owner of the Brooklyn Nets are and they will say Jay-Z. Jay-Z is just one big pawn. Jay-Z just plays the role of “BOSS”. You think they gonna let a black man get ahead of the white man. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

  • Drizzy Drake Signed The Right Deals

    BLACK BELIEVE ANYTHING! The white man pulled a fast one on you guys. He was like aye lets have Jay-Z and his wife sit courtside and shake the players hands. He’s from Brooklyn where all the african americans are and Jay-Z’s hometown, let move our underperforming team there and hope to revive it. Lets let him design our new logo so we can have the urban look. We sen Hov to repesent us at the Draft Lottery. You young consumers are dumb as fuck.

  • Your mother’s “friend”

    You broke niggas don’t even own 10% of your own homes but wanna comment on a millionaire, lmao wow get over yourselves you losers

  • http://freshsideny.wordpress.com freshsidenyc

    Jay-Z owns one percent of a franchise—meanwhile you own 0 percent of nothing…………Stop Hating and be about something.I guess when somebody is so successful that it makes you feel inferior, the only way to make yourself feel better is tell yourself he ain’t shit and believe your own lies.

  • damone

    Damn HATERS so… If I came to you and said I’ll give 1percent of my team move it Brooklyn and let u run it and be the face. Design uniforms put a 40/40 club in there and u can,open it up with 8 sold out shows… plus get paid crazy money… All Jay z HATERS always hate how big he is just face facts u hate go getters

  • flawda

    @ JAZO

    How did Jay-z do his friends wrong, Dame and Biggs were his business partners and they all got equal payout when Rocafella and Rocawear was sold, what Jay-z chose to do with his money after the split is on him. As for friends, the people who were there before the music business (Ty Ty, Bee High, Bleek,etc) are still there, those other dudes was just business. They got their money, Jay-z doesn’t owe nobody nothing, Dame was popping off at the mouth siding with Cam.

  • Cz

    To anyone talking about all the hatin on jay z, I’m a jay fan, but this dude owns 1% of the team, why is he getting so much attention?? He clearly is being used as a poster boy, and that’s cool let him do it, it’s an effective marketing strategy. But you do have to admit that he isn’t a majority owner at all and doesn’t make decisions when it comes to players or anything like that. If it’s a 300 million dollar franchise, then his 1% comes out to 3 million dollars, which is a lot, but for someone with as much money as him, if he had wanted to be a majority owner, he could’ve been…but he’s not.

  • Siy@

    @ Your mother’s “friend” AND freshsidenyc
    AND WHAT DO YOL OWN 10% OF ??

    LOL JAY-Z FANS ARE SO ODD … LIKE WE COULD ASK YOL THE SAME, WHAT DO YOL OWN 10% OF ??

    ITS SIMPLE HE ONLY OWNS 1% N THERES NOTHING YOL CAN DO ABOUT THAT, YOU CAN TYPE N CALL OUR VIEWS HATE BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY HE ONLY OWNS 1%

  • Nickey Negrito

    @Damone, cosign

    @siy, yes I’m Jay fan, and as a fan I feel it’s necessary to stick up for the things I respect about Jay. I would do the same for Prince, Badu or anybody I’m a fan of. I have to assume you dislike Jay strongly. Your views on him speak in volumes.

    As far as the selling soul bit, it was directed to others but I forgot to add the @ symbol

    Basically let Jay live his life or post your Bio and let me critique your life?

    Pls jay-z fans just stop with the dickriding GOD !!
    He only owns 1% and is being used for his image thats it, not hate its just what it is you’ll cant change that.

    @ Brooklyn Finest. staff and personal wont be replaced by any Brooklyn natives they still the same ppl who worked under the NJ Nets … stop reaching

    @ Nickey Negrito. You making a fool of yoself my nigga you being dfensive for what ?? you not a fan you a stan (the “S” that replaces the F is for SAD)

    @ Your mother’s “friend” and freshsidenyc. What do you two own 10% of ??????????????

    @ Siy@. you right the new Iphone 5 is crap compared to the Samsang galaxy S3 or the nokia Lumia 920.

    @ Jaz-O. You are a HATER

  • Tbones

    Cosignee @ the few people that have not been hoodwinked by all the facade. Dumb fans and even peeps that should know like Trevor Nelson thinks Jay actually owns the Nets when it doesnt require a rocket science to see that hes just a pawn/brand being used by big boys to market a wack team that has not made the playoffs in a long time and wont make it any time soon. The sad thing is y’all dumb folks are prolly gonna get poorer by being sheeps and following blindly while the “big boys” and Jay albeit a pawn will continue to get rich. U got a nigga like Kanye rapping about how he can make Jay drop K Humphries even though jay does not have any say in d running of the team.

    Listen dumb folks, you all prolly still believing like the powers that be want y’all to that Jay owns the following;
    (A) Defjam, very laughable, he was just an appointee just like Joie Manda is at the moment.
    (B) Brooklyn Net, only dumb stans n ignoramuses believed this in d first place.
    (C)Budweiser’s Made in America festival headlined by Jay has turned into Jay’s made in America festival.
    (D) D U’sse cognac by Bacardi and cosigned by Jay has turned into Jay’s new venture, just as ace of spades. LMAO. I can go on about the foolery but i know the smart ones get ma drift.

    The moral of the story is the powers that be got d stans n the dumb folks by the balls, all they gotto do is pay Jay an endorsement fee and watch you all jump on the bandwagon with illusions of inspiration by Jay. LMAO

  • Tbones

    My cosignee to the smart ones @Queens get d money, Drizzy, Dream chaser, Siya, CZ. All these other niggas living vicariously through Jay hence the ridiculous dick riding. I guess it makes them feel good about themselves that their fav rapper is super rich and bangs a bad bitch. LMAO.

    Tbones Jays a business man so,what bud paid him to throw a concert smart people know jay goes to sponsors to throw a concert so he pays nothing for sit up etc… Like the NFL CBS NBC FOX ETC pay them to broadcast they games LOL get so,education bro jay hustler

  • damone

    It’s just funny to me people don’t understand that Jay is just doing using his face as coupon like he said. Most acts can’t get sponsors to pay for they set Jay running things

  • Genesis

    Flawda answered that one for me…. Every one is shifty anyways…. At least Jay left niggas with dignity and opportunity when he dipped on em….

  • Tbones

    @Damone, i absolutely agree with u and there is nothing wrong with what he is doing as hes still getting paid. Fact is Jay dont own none of those ventures like you simpletons try to make it be.

  • Nickey Negrito

    Niggaz acting like they know Jays personal accounts….lol

    Call me a stan but yall commenting about his ownership being false like its the most important thing in life. Proud men who love shitting on a nigga hustle. Yall might as well hate everybody making moves. Majority would love to receive the benefits Jay getting.

  • Nickey Negrito

    At Dreamchaser, i’ll be that.

    What r u?

    Why are you so pressed to prove ya points?

    This shit aint serious as u haters make it fam.
