Rapper and Nets owner takes shot at organization

Is there suddenly bad blood brewing between soon-to-be former minority owner Jay-Z and the Nets? In a recently released song, "Open Letter", the hip-hop mogul, the 17-time Grammy winner and Brooklyn icon took a not-so-veiled shot at the organization, or at least one of the Nets' higher-ups.  

"Would've brought the Nets to Brooklyn for free. Except, I made millions off of you f***ing dweeb. I still own the building, I'm still keeping my seats, you buy that bulls***, you better keep your receipts." Jay-Z was forced to divest his one-fifteenth of one percent stake in the Nets, as per NBA guidelines, when he indicated his desire to sign NBA players to his newly formed Roc Nation Sports Agency in advance of the June Draft.
