Jay took his Monday morning to finally announce the New Jersey nets official move to Brooklyn. Earlier today, he appeared on Fox 5 New York for an exclusive interview on the Net’s new home.

“We’ve decided that the final name would be the Brooklyn Nets,” said the rapper who grew up only minutes away at the Marcy Houses and later at 560 State Street.

“It’s already created so many jobs… there are lots of vendors,” added Jay Z speaking from the plaza at Atlantic Terminal overlooking the Center.

“I like that. You know what it is, it’s deep love. Biggie had a line ‘spread love that’s the Brooklyn way. It’s a deep love we have for our heroes. We walk around with that,” said Jay.
