Jay-Z Is Now A Director Of Soon-To-Be Stadium Of The Brooklyn Nets
Jay-Z has been giving a major role once again! This time his role will be as one of the directors of the Brooklyn Net’s stadium.
Jay-Z’s resume is filled with occupations such as running his own record label, hocks luxury liquors and even raps from time to time, but now it looks like he needs to fill out one more occupation, director of the Brooklyn Nets. A report from the New York Post, revealed that Jay-Z will be the new director of the Brooklyn Nets’ Barclay Arena.
The news was announced when Forest City Ratner Cos., the company developing the stadium, filed for a liquor license with some documents naming Shawn Carter as one of the stadium’s seven directors. Jay-Z will be attending board meetings and directing the aspects of the sport’s daily upkeep.
Even though they didn’t give the full details on Jay-Z’s specific duties, he has already aided the stadium with some certain aesthetic elements. He helped out on re-designing the Nets’ logo and jerseys and he helped out furnish the arena’s 11 luxury box seats, which are named “The Vaults.”
Despite Jay-Z being a major public presence, he owns a minority share of the team with Mikhail Prokhorov, Russian billionaire, holding about 80% of the team’s shares.
