Jay Z To Make At Least $1.5 Million By Selling His Less Than 1% Share Of Barklays Center


Jay Z will be selling his share of the Barclays Center very soon and will get a hefty price for it. The rapper owns slightly less than one-fifth of one percent of the Brooklyn, New York arena.


Forbes reports that the Roc Nation CEO will get $1.5 million once the sale is complete. That figure could actually increase based on the success the arena has had thus far.


Barklays is the home of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets. In addition it's getting close to pushing Madison Square Garden to the side as the number one arena in New York City for big boxing events and concerts. Within the past two months both Beyonce and Justin Bieber have performed there.



Through the first half of 2013, Barklays is the top grossing venue in America, making Jay Z's stake that much more valuable.


Jay has already sold his one-fifteenth of one percent ownership of the Nets to Jason Kidd for $500,000.


The sale of both shares will allow Jay to devote his full attention to his new company Roc Nation Sports. RNS already boasts Kevin Durant of the Oklahomo City Thunder, Robinson Cano of the New York Yankess, Geno Smith of the New York Jets, Victor Cruz of the New York Giants and Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock as clients.

You extra stupid a** n**** when did jay or anybody project his shares to be worth 300 million???? Once again it's been common knowledge for years that he was a minority owner when it came to the team and it's been know for over a year what his ownership of the barclays center is so why hasn't his net worth dropped if Forbes knew his percent of barclays was 1/5 of 1% for a long time so why would they believe that his shares were worth 300million n**** seriously the dumb s*** you're saying is leaving me confused Bruce ratner sold 80% of the nets to that Russian for 200 million right and this has been known for years that he owns that other 20+% and jay owned 1/15 of 1% making them both minority owners which they were listed as so why would Forbes or anybody assume his shares were worth 300 million? Ratner bought the nets for 300 million in 04 jay bought a 1 million dollar stake in the nets in 04 then ratner sold 80% in 2010 to the russian dude with the funny name the same dude who owns 45% of the barclays and gave a 700million dollar loan the build the barclays so???????????? How can jay project his shares to be more or worth more when it's been known for once again years how much of the nets he use to own and how much of the barclays he owns seriously the dumb s*** you're saying is leaving me confused

@kelvin ledford

Do you realize how much sense your comment didn't make? You extra stupid n**** realize what you said you said and I'll quote your stupid a** you said 

"forbes estimate jay worth over 400 mil. and these ownership titles for the nets made up a bulk of his neworth"

And then you said

"jay z lead you to believe his shares were a lot more and worth a lot more. when they only worth 2 mil."

Only to say

"jay actually worth little over 100 mil if you minus the nets share which were projected to be about 300 mil.."

N**** you're beyond stupid it's been common knowledge for a while that jay owned 1/15 of 1% of the nets and you're saying a bulk of his net worth 300 million is because of his 1/15 of 1% of the team and 1/5 of 1% of the building even though you said jay led us to believe his shares are worth more when they're worth only 2 mill??? N**** he owned 0.06666667% of the nets and owns 1/5 of the barclays center which is.2%  and if my math is correct by the stupid s*** you said the nets are worth 450billion dollars or the barclays center is worth 150billion??? Which would easily make the nets the most valuable team in not only basketball but every sport in the world or the barclays center the most overpriced piece of property in the world and wouldve been far too expensive for the person who is the majority owner to build 

Okay i understand why he dumped his share of the brooklyn nets because if he didnt his sport managment company would be violating nba law but negro keep your stake in the barclays center

Jay was frontin like Officer Ricky

Pretty weak Jay Z. You supposedly have all that bread so there is no reason to have to front about being a majority owner in your raps. I see people on here saying it was a know fact that he owned less than 1 percent but that's only people like us that read these blogs. There are millions who believe he was an owner like Jordan. Is because he was pulling an Officer Ricky in his raps
