Thriller Thursday. It looks like Jay-Z may really be a minority owner if the hype is legit regarding his role on the Brooklyn Nets. Staying on the topic of basketball, Ciara keeps getting picked as the NBA groupie but she's speaking out now. And is Nicki Minaj ready to sign her own female rapper? All this in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Business, Man

Jay-Z's got to be a busy man these days. With the new NBA 2K13 executive producer job, 40/40 Club ventures, his Brooklyn wings spot, being the dad to Blue Ivy Carter, being the husband to Beyoncé, the list goes on. Well, if all is right, Media Take Out has one of the biggest look-overs Jay might have done when signing his Nets contract:


August 16, 2012: The NY Times just released a SCATHING new report, saying that Jay Z owns virtually NONE of the New Jersey Nets. Jay Z has been BRAGGING for the last 10 years or so about "owning" the Nets. But according to the Times, Jigga's interest in the team amounts to one fifteenth of ONE PERCENT of the team, or less than $200,000. (The team is valued at about $300M) Here is what they report: [All told, [Jay Z] has achieved a remarkable feat of leverage with his tiny sliver of the team, which was reduced from one-third to one-fifteenth of a percent upon Mr. Prokhorov's purchase of the Nets, according to people aware of the deal terms.] You see, this is why BILLIONAIRES stay winning. Dude just SH*TTED on Jay - diluted the F*CK outta him. And Jigga is still running around REPPING for that team. (Media Take Out)

In all fairness, this is a bit hard to believe. Could Jay have really been down to agree to such a small percentage of the team? He did, however, design the team logo and is practically the face of the franchise at the end of the day. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Ciara's World

Ciara has a tendency to stay in the gossip headlines these days. Whether it's dating Bow Wow or 50 Cent or A'mare Stoudemire or...Dwight Hoard? Uh-oh. Looks like Ciara may have a thing for the new Superman in Los Angeles. RumorFix has the scoop on why she's not ready to play Lois-Lane just yet:


R&B singer Ciara is blowing off a rumor that she's dating Los Angeles Lakers star, Dwight Howard. The rumor was started by MediaTakeOut, who also reported earlier this month that Ciara was trying to win back her ex, New York Knicks center, Amar'e Stoudemire. On Wednesday night, Ciara took to Twitter to make light of the latest gossip involving herself and a NBA star, wrting: "Wonder who the new man is next week! Looks like the only person missing is Phil Jackson, and I would've done em all! haha! #GetoffMyNippz," she tweeted. Ciara was also rumored to be dating Carolina Panthers star Cam Newton, but that rumor proved to be inaccurate as well. (RumorFix)

Pretty funny tweet. At least Ciara can have a sense of humor about the gossip and rumors. But what "if" this was really true? Good look? Bad look? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Ladies Night

It's about time Nicki Minaj really took things up a notch and started signing her own talent. She seems to have a knack for picking out the best collaborators for her tunes and if all is right, All Hip Hop Rumors has the scoop on what rap vet Nicki has her eyes on right now:

Last night at the Roseland in NYC, Nicki Minaj made good on her promise and held a free concert in NYC. This concert was to make up for her Summer Jam no-show. As expected, Nicki had a gang of special guests, including the ill nana, Foxy Brown. If you remember, Nicki partied with Foxy the night she sh*tted on Hot 97 and Summer Jam 2012. Anyway, it looks like Nicki Minaj has inspired Foxy to step back into the booth and record new music. Check out what she yelled on stage when Nicki brought her out: "I'm coming back," Brown said. "My sister's making sure. I'm coming back." So is Nicki starting her own label and signing Foxy? Or is she bringing Foxy over to YMCMB? Nicki could just be helping her with her music. Who knows, but its good to see Foxy coming back - I hope she brings some heat. Are you excited to see Foxy Brown come back to the rap game? (All Hip Hop Rumors)

It seems like the new trend is older rappers signing with younger artists. We've seen that with Juicy J going to Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang, Busta Rhymes joining Cash Money and so on. Could this be a move in the making? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip blogs.
