Jay-Z's Investment Likely to Pay Off

It's unclear how big a stake Jay-Z has in the Nets...or whether he is compensated in ways beyond that stake.

But Zack O'Malley Greenburg, who writes for Forbes and recently authored a biography of the rapper/entrepreneur, surmises from various newspaper reports that Jay-Z received a discount on his investment. And with the value of the franchise likely to increase dramatically when it moves to Brooklyn, that investment could bring in some serious returns.
