Jay-Z Selling Off His Brooklyn Nets Shares? + Stacey Dash Questions The Carters Spending Their Dollars In Cuba

Brooklyn goes hard....with or without Jay-Z as the face of its NBA franchise.  Deets on Mr. Carter reportedly selling his shares of the BK Nets, plus more updates (and criticisms) about the Carters chillin' in Cuba....

Well that was quick.  After one season at the Barclays center and years of working to bring the team to BK, it looks like Jay-Z may be already selling off his shares of the team. 

Yahoo Sports is reporting that Mr. Carter is looking to "divest his ownership share" -- meaning sell off his share -- of the Nets.  And it's all because he wants to expand his Roc Nation Sports division, which recently signed Yankee Robinson Cano, into the world of professional basketball.  According to NBA rules, one cannot have ownership in a team and represent individual players at the same time.  So Hov is going the agent route.

He owns less than 1% of the Nets, but is undoubtedly the face of the franchise.  He propelled the team to a big name status, and he's gotten rewarded in return with tons of publicity, lots of face time on and off the Barclays stage, and the opportunity to brand his existing catalog of music into the NBA franchise.  Business doesn't always mean cash is involved....notoriety, platforms and clout are parts of the equation too. 

It looks like Hov may be leaving with exactly what he came in to get, so it may be a win-win for everyone.

Meanwhile, Jay and his wife Beyonce are still under fire from political figures and others for their anniversary vacay to Cuba.

The NY Daily News reports that the twosome obtained a cultural license to visit the country that is off limits legally to most Americans.  A US government license must be issued, only in special circumstances, in order for an American to travel to the country.  The creative license allowed the couple to travel there for their 5th wedding anniversary.

Yet and still, people are pissed as some say The Carters are co-signing on an oppressive & abusive country. 

So, of course, Stacey Dash put in her 2 cents as the right wing mouth piece.  But, since we're here and presenting all sides, here's what she asked her Twitter followers:

Do you care that The Jay Z's have taken the capital you have given them and funded a communist oppressive regime?

The "Jay-Z's" though?  Oh...ok Stacey.

It's not all that rare to get

It's not all that rare to get a visa to Cuba, in fact a couple of years ago the uS created more cultural exchange programs so more people could go and they can't keep up with the demand. I've been there on a photography mission and I'm nobody special.

First of all, this being a discussing for real is just retarded. By law, they obviously applied and was approved for a Visa from Cuba and the US or they'd be in jail right now. Secondly, Americans always think they're better than everyone else. Our country is one of the worst countries on the planet for violence, murder, racism, and the government killing people that try to stop them from doing illegal activites....just like Cuba. You wanna have a problem with them going there, you should also stand up against EVERY celeb that comes here from another country. Far too many Americans sit on their high horses and forget our country isn't perfect. Tourist money funds OUR OWN corrupted activities so FU Stacey Dash!

"He owns less than 1% of the Nets....Business doesn't always mean cash is involved....notoriety, platforms and clout are parts of the equation too," umm seriously? Are ya'll really trying to justify him not making sh!t from this "business venture?" Jay-Z just wanted the opportunity to say he owned part of a NBA team. It was all for show. Beyonce did say, "He's got a big ego." Lol!

Urban gentrification often

Urban gentrification often involves population migration as poor residents of a neighborhood are displaced. In a community undergoing gentrification, the average income increases and average family size decreases. This generally results in the displacement of the poorer, pre-gentrification residents, who are unable to pay increased rents, and property taxes, or afford real estate. Often old industrial buildings are converted to residences and shops. New businesses, which can afford increased commercial rent, cater to a more affluent base of consumers—further increasing the appeal to higher income migrants and decreasing the accessibility to the poor. Often, resident owners unable to pay the taxes are forced to sell their residences and move to a cheaper community.

Yea it's all good...he just

Yea it's all good...he just exploited his own people & old neighborhood to help whites with gentrification...all for some publicity..cooning at its best...now he can just focus on selling poison to black people, Oh I mean alcohol...

The move makes good business

The move makes good business sense. He wasn't making any money as a 1% owner. So he spent a year using the team's relocation to gain more publicity for himself (and of course the team benefited too) and then, after leveraging his added appeal in the sports world, moves on to the more lucrative project. Kinda the story of his career.

Does anyone take Stacey Dash

Does anyone take Stacey Dash seriously? Please! Let she who doesn't own a single product from China cast the first stone! That country has children making shoes for pennies a day, has no translation for "human rights", throws anyone in jail who dares criticize the gov't but Cuba is the most evil regime of them all. It's all about economic power and resources. Whatever. Next!

Just one question for you

Just one question for you people here at theybf, are you all on jay-z's pay roll? The man owns less that 1 percent of the franchise/ stadium in Brooklyn. Which basically means it was a gift/offer to him from the majority owners and share holders of the team/stadium franchise. In return for being the front/ face for the company for urban appeal. So the sale of less than 1 percent means that he wants nothing more to do with the project cause hes not making any money at all from the offer. But one thing he is loseing out on is the private box/ play room for Blu ivy( he has more than one child dont forget the one in Trinidad) and the court side seats. Unless the owners still give him the seats for free. But to save face if they do not, he (jays) will pay for the seats and the private box himself. I know cause I'm a insider...

At first I thought maybe

At first I thought maybe Stacey Dash is really into politics, but now I know she literally goes on these rants for attention. The state dept already said that they gave clearance for them to visit Cuba. It was an anniversary with their own money. Stacey your best bet is to start acting, and leave the politics for politicians...
