Jigga man is the birthday boy and he can shine if he wants to!
While the rap mogul may be celebrating his born day today, he has been celebrating something else all year, the opening of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Jay has been courtside with his lady at nearly almost home game, and when he isn't rooting for his team, of course he is out repping Brooklyn in a Nets Jersey.
GQ caught up with the Nets part-owner to chat it up about the 5 best things the Brooklyn Nets have to offer.
Check them out below!
The jerseys: "All-black everything! And the lettering—the typography reminds you of the old subway. It's classic."
The court: "It's herringbone, which is crazy. In fact, the NBA fought me on it. They said if it gets shot on TV, the lines will mess up the screen. I'm like, this ain't 1988—we've got HD. We ended up taking it to the old arena in New Jersey to test it."
Barclays Center: "It's beautiful, amazing, really well-done. It's just classy. It's still an arena, so there's only so much you can do. But for an arena, it's actually really beautiful."
Brooklyn: "Well, Brooklyn is cool; that's like the definition. There's nothing on earth cooler than Brooklyn."
Jay-Z: "Me? Ha, I am Brooklyn."
Way to keep it humble Jay!
