Hello Brooklyn

Jay became part owner of the then New Jersey Nets in 2002, and his investment came full circle in September 2011, when Jay Z christened the Nets' new stadium in Brooklyn, the Barclays Center, with eight sold-out shows. Hov has become a prominent presence on the sidelines at home games. "The city is under new management," he tweeted after watching the Nets defeat their cross-town rivals, the New York Knicks, two months after the arena opened.
