by Shaina Auxilly
The face of the franchise, the rapper that “brought a basketball team to Brooklyn”, the #1 lyricist turned businessman but what is Jay-Z’s real worth with the Brooklyn Nets? Today the official numbers were released via Darren Rovell, an ESPN Sports Business Reporter and after the release of an interesting NY Times article.
According to Rovell, Jay-Z born Shawn Carter owns .06% of the Nets a total of $214,000 a minuscule amount of the team that’s worth a reported $312 million according to Forbes. This number might take you aback and make you feel a bit bamboozled when you look around and almost every association with the Brooklyn Nets features the legendary rap star. That was indeed the intended purpose.
