Ever since Jay Z announced that he would be starting Roc Nation Sports, an agency to represent multi-million dollar star athletes, he has received a fair share of criticism.

Hova, as Jay Z likes to call himself, has had enough of the “dweebs” hating on his ways.
Music producer Swizz Beats revealed the makings of the song Open Letter on New York’s Hot 97 Thursday morning (via Huffington Post):
In a morning call on New York’s Hot 97, Swizz revealed that the song was started in Jay-Z’s office. “I had the portable drum machine with me, then we went down to the 40/40 [club] to watch the game,” he said. “Then [Timbaland] came by and was like, ‘That beat is crazy.’ Next morning, Jay called me with verses.”
Jay raps about his recent trip to Cuba with Beyonce, drops a Zoolander line, compares himself to Bob Dylan, but the lines that caught our attention were in reference to him selling his shares of the Nets in order to become a sports agent.
“I woulda brought the Nets to Brooklyn for free
Except I made millions off you f–king dweebs
I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seats
You buy that bullsh-t, you better keep your receipts.”
Somehow the hip hop star has hustled everyone into thinking that he owns the Nets, but when in reality he owns 1/15th of one percent.
The guy has hustled hard and he isn’t about to let all the “haters” keep on hating.
