Jay-Z To Welcome Brooklyn Nets With Eight-Show Concert Series

Hov will celebrate his team with a string of performances in Brooklyn, New York.

In addition to announcing the team's new name as Brooklyn Nets, Jay-Z will headline a series of shows at Brooklyn, New York's new arena that opens next fall.

According to NYDN, Hov, who's a part-owner in the basketball team, will perform the shows at the Barclays Center, which will open on September 28, 2012. Sources say that Beyonce, who will have given birth to their first child, will appear at one of the shows, while special performers will grace the stage at others.

The Brooklyn, New York rapper will appear this morning with developer Bruce Ratner and Borough President Marty Markowitz to announce the details of the shows at the Prospect Heights construction site.

"I'm going to open the building with a couple of concerts... maybe like eight," he told MyFoxNY, also explaining the name change. "You know what it is, it's deep love. Biggie had a line 'spread love that's the Brooklyn way. It's a deep love we have for our heroes. We walk around with that."

    Typical niggers, just like crabs in a barrel, how the fuck do you hate on a nigga you don't even know, ask yourself haters, what does your favorite rapper own???a pair of jeggins a pink wig and a bucnh of fucked up facial tats..do you think corporate america will ever have a sit down with theses clowns??NOT..bottom line you should be happy for a nigga that looks just like you and came from where you from..do your thing HOV..and for the niggers that dont know shit, look at his earrings every year and where it comes from, sales, clothes, 40/40/ and his minority stakes in the NJ nets..

      "and for the niggers that dont know shit".. Clearly you belong to that category yourself. Why would common people be impressed by a nigger in a suit who's sucking cock @ corporate America? Fuck corporate america. Jay doesn't do anything for regular people and even brags about this? Why is it cool to be as filthy rich and greedy as fuck? It ain't cool and there's nothing to brag about or to look up to. HOV is just a nigga who was chosen to be in the position he's in. He hasn't done anything for you and me, all that matters to him is how much money he's got and how much you contribute to him because you like the shit he does. Don't buy those stupid clothes, they are owned by white rich people anyway. Why if this nigga is so 'intelligent' doesn't he speak what's on his mind. Jay knows about 9/11, he knows about the industry, yet he keeps his mouth shut. Now why would a smart businessman do this? Because he's fucking in on it. Wtf does it matter we don't know this guy? You don't even know the guy yourself and you adore him, now tell me what is more scary? You can't trust this dude for shit.

  • Bk all day

    J is a figure head for the nets . Guess they figured with him as the face there wouldn't have too much backlash to the gentrification and eminit domain issues they were having in building the barclay center .

    • finally

      bingo! how many other "part owners" do you see all over the media talking about performing and making appearances about the Nets? ppl dont use their brains anymore, they just take what they are told like the media owes them the truth or something lol. jay-z is a salesman for a crappy dinner...helps it go down easy for the dummies...dude doesn't own jackshit in the nets relatively

    kids shouldnt grow up to be like obama they should be like jay z. this is one smart nigga literally all he does is win. i wish i had some of the thoughts he had haha.

    • JJ

      Jay-Z is a egotistical prat. Kids should grow up and be themselves, not someone who weasled and nut-hugged(DeHaven,Jaz-O,Nas,Big,Dame,StateProp,etc) their way through the ranks. Make your own path and be honest but clever not a snake.

    The hate in here is disgusting. We now have two teams. More than most states. This man is making power moves & opening up doors that haven't been open for certain people. I respect his movement. Now we have conspiracy theories as another tool to prevent us from supporting our own. Cut it out children.

    • @keezie

      fuck you u fuckin stupid pig

    • spiritof2PAC

      What conspiracy theories Keezie?? Do you even know what a Conspiracy is?? If you did than you would understand what is going on.... We aren't knocking his success, people are just pointing out the fact that JAYZ is a complete Satanist, who is a self indulged prick. He is a Warlock/male witch... I know it's hard to believe... But you cant deny the facts... proof's right in front of your eyes....

      It's not about size, moron. It's about population and revenue potential, which New York has both in spades.

    • Hip Hop Fan

      Actually Texas has 3 teams and California has 4, but both those states are massive compared to New York.

      @ Anonymous. Tell em. Jay-Z is a "good-boy", a "token", that's all. People need to look to the real for inspiration, not that tack clown.

    • @hiphopfan

      keep suckin dick you moron. maybe one day you will fuck a cop up the ass your dream date

    • Hip Hop Fan

      Why should Jay even comment on Troy Davis? Did he personally know him? I doubt it. Is Jay-Z even into race relations? I doubt it. Just because someone is in the spotlight doesn't mean they have to comment on everything going on in this world. At the end of the day he is a rapper/entertainer and thats all he does.

    Brooklyn Nets...smh.. Different name and they'll still suck.... Why is it made to seem like he owns 50 percent of the team, cuz last time I read he owned like 1.5 or a lil more or less...lol... Unless you are Michael Jordan who is majority owner, which is something to brag about. Obviously they're just using jayz's celebrity status though.. I'd rather own part of the Bulls and Celtics.....

    • Hip Hop Fan

      I fail to see how he is being used as a tool. He has invested into a sports team that is now located in the number one money making state. Look at the Knicks, they lose every year and are still valued as the number on NBA team because they can sell out games regardless of wins or losses. At the end of the day the Brooklyn/New Jersey Nets just made the smartest move in the NBA. I bet this team might not win but just like the Knicks will see a great jump in profits. Smart move

      To person above me... Sales only matter when your marketing budget is really high like Wayne, 50, Eminem and Jay. Out of all those guys you named only The Games budget is high which would mean he would have to sell total 500k to recoup. The others don't have budgets and some are independent meaning 100k sold is actually amazing.

    • Anonymous

      if game done,then rappers should just go find another thing to do, cause 100K first week is what most decent rappers these days gonna get.. goin gold is special now haha.
