The rap mogul has been more than hands on with his team.
In late April, the Nets unveiled a new black-and-white team logo that ESPN reported that Hov played an instrumental role in designing.
“The Brooklyn Nets logos are another step we’ve made to usher the organization into a new era,” Jay-Z said in a statement received by ESPN. “The boldness of the designs demonstrate the confidence we have in our new direction. Along with our move to Brooklyn and a state-of-the-art arena, the new colors and logos are examples of our commitment to update and refine all aspects of the team.”
