Is this how you raise morale, or is this like smashing a lamp as everyone evacuates Ancient Troy?

(*And, yes, you can successfully compare the New Jersey/Brooklyn/Five Boroughs Nets to Ancient Troy.)

from The Score:

“Jay-Z is selling his Nets ownership shares, so he obviously made a song about it.

“I woulda moved the Nets to Brooklyn for free
Except I made millions off it, you f–king dweeb
I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seats
You buy that bullsh-t, you better keep your receipts.”

Nice, Hova. Has he gone full Kanye, yet? Or, will Brooklyn We Go Hard and the trailer for 42 sustain his level of bawse-ness for a little longer?

Meanwhile, Ray J is actually cool, and I still listen to this song more than anything from ‘Watch the Throne’…
