Well, not really. But Mr Carter’s only gone and got himself on the board of directors for the Brooklyn Barclays Arena…
Jay has already designed a logo and jerseys for the soon-to-be relaunched Brooklyn Nets baseball team. And now he’s been selected to become one of the team’s stadium directors too.
Although exact details of Jigga’s responsibilities have not been revealed, it is apparent that he will sit on the director’s board, and oversee decisions about the stadium’s maintenance.
The news was revealed when Forest City Ratner Cos., the company in charge of the stadium’s development, filed for an alcohol license and named Shawn Carter (known in Hip-Hopperly circles as Jay-Z) as one of the arena’s directors.
