    Now the Rihanna coupling makes sense. That is awesome for James Young. Great marketing for him in the future.

      Jay: “So can we get that contract signed tonight?”

      James: “Yes…I’m ready…meet in your suite at Barclay’s?”

      Jay: “I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to have Rihanna pick it up tonight…you’ll be sitting by her at the game. Have fun with that.”

      James: “I’ve made it.”

      …something like that…

      Pretty sure an agent-affiliated company can’t buy naming rights to a college facility. Then again, the NCAA is retarded.

    “Jay-Z raised eyebrows at the Barclay’s Center last week when he wore a medallion symbolizing the Five Percent Nation.The Brooklyn-born rapper was sitting court-side at a Nets game on Tuesday with wife Beyonce when he was snapped wearing the controversial symbol.One of the core tenants of the Five Percent Nation – an off-shoot of the Nation of Islam – is that white people are ‘wicked and inferior’ to black men.”

    F Jay-Z and his RACIST beliefs…and F Young for associating himself with a RACIST!

      Kind of like Christianity believes non Christians are inferior to them and believe non-Christians are sinners and wont get into “heaven” or be saved by God unless they are Christians.

      Plus, Mr. Factoid, please direct me to the continents that Christians slaughtered. C’mon, you racist f&^cktard.



    • Han
      2:02 pm May 1, 2014 Permalink

      Facts, that’s a weak analogy.

      Christianity is a religion, not an ethnicity/race. Christians may believe non-Christians have lesser lives because they aren’t saved, but that’s no where near the same as calling a race or ethnicity inferior because of how they were born. If Christians said black people were inferior and couldn’t get into Heaven because they’re black, that’d be similar.

      If you’re gonna trot out some middle school Atheism, at least do it in the right context.

      yes, because events that happened hundreds of years ago obviously still indict today’s Christians. they’re the same people after all.

      Not defending Muslims; Just saying equal loony mentalities that lead people to do evil in the name of a “god” There’s really no difference at all. That’s right, I just equated your jesus to their mohammed. GET MAD!!!!

    • Aldirt
      2:09 pm May 1, 2014 Permalink

      Yup, just like you’re apparently indicting all muslims based on the actions of some. Again, not defending either religion, as i think it’s all foolishness. Just saying, let’s not be hypocritical here!

      Hence why New York rappers from the 90’s referred to one another as “God”. Many of them were of the Five Percent Nation, thus they believed the black man was God. This also explains the true origins for today’s term of endearment of “G”. For someone accusing Daniel of applying “Hannity” logic, maybe you should make an attempt to improve your cultural literacy before making assumptions. A lot of mainstream influences in hip hop were self-proclaimed Five Percenters, but those with no knowledge of this would rather reduce someone to a bigoted conservative should they dare be critical of of hip hop or anything remotely related to minorities. Rakim, members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Busta Rhymes all claim to be part of the Nation and incorporated their mathematics into the hip hop culture.

      @ Christian, hey, pray all you want. you’re wasting your time either way, regardless of who you do it for. BUT, if it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, by all means talk to your imaginary friend!

    “Jay made a rather shocking statement at a Brooklyn Nets game on April 1, rocking a medallion from the Five Percent Nation, an off-shoot of Islam that preaches harsh tenets like “white men are the devil.”

    Jay Z may be more of an activist than he lets on. The 44-year-old rapper raised eyebrows at the April 1 Brooklyn Nets game by taking his courtside seat with a Five Percent Nation chain around his neck, seemingly advocating for some shocking, racially charged beliefs.”

    “The Five Percent Nation is an off-shoot of the Nation of Islam that preaches that black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost, and most shockingly, that white men are the devil.”

    “When asked by a reporter if the Five Percent medallion held any meaning for him, Jay shrugged and said, “A little bit,” according to Page Six. And it must, because the basketball game wasn’t the first time the rapper was caught rocking the bling – Jay also wore it at his Magna Carta World Tour show in Philadelphia on Jan. 29.”

    Mr. Z is openly RACIST towards whites, but yet he gets a free pass. If a white entertainer had worn a similar medallion demeaning the black race it would be on the news non-stop.

      What Mr. Z believes: “Five-Percenters are discouraged from marrying anyone of the white race as doing so would dilute the purity of their blood but the anti-white racism is primarily targeted at white men.”

      By that logic anybody who sports a confederate flag agrees with all the beliefs held by the most racist confederate troop. But I’m sure you wouldn’t agree with that logic….

      He wears it cause it looks cool he’s a rapper that’s what they do. Find cool symbold and try and make them their own…

    This is true about Jay-Z its common knowledge and easily found on the web with pictures of the medallion and all. If I were Cal I’d keep this guy as far from my guys as possible. Its kinda sad that james choose this guy as a rep. Id never buy anything Jay-Z is selling. Its hard to believe a white man lost his team for his comments “deserving”. And Jay-Z is an owner although its not majority there is no place in society for racist people in our world reguardless it shouldn’t be ok just cause its the other way around. How is this not in the publics eye.
