[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm] has his hands in the entire process in renaming and redesigning the newly named NBA team Brooklyn Nets, formerly the New Jersey Nets. Being co-owner does allow him the freedom to be creative with the logo and color design.
According to HiphopDX.com:
Hov will team with the Nets and Adidas to lend a creative hand to rebranding the team.
Earlier this week, Jay-Z announced that the New Jersey Nets will be known as the Brooklyn Nets when they move to the New York borough next year. But according to NY Post, he will get involved with rebranding the team.
Hov is reportedly working with Nets’ personnel and Adidas to design uniforms for the basketball squad. Jay, who’s a part owner in the team, will also help redesign the logo and what colors the uniforms should be (they will no longer be red, silver, white and navy blue).
As previously reported, Jay-Z will perform an eight-concert series when the Barclays Center opens in Brooklyn next year.
I think this will be very interesting to see how well the fans will react to the new look and name of the Brooklyn Nets. And we shall see if Jay-Z has some design skills or not.
