Jay Z congratulates Raptors on Twitter


The Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors have been duking it out in the first round of the NBA Playoffs and their associated rappers, Drake and Jay Z, have been beefing as well. The Nets held on to win Game 7 in Toronto and advance to the second round, and former Nets owner Jay Z congratulated the Raptors on a hard fought series while using the lyric “spread love it’s the Brooklyn way” as a hashtag.

It is the first time he has tweeted since July of 2013 right around the release of his Magna Carta, Holy Grail album release. He is still not quite a Twitter expert yet because be missed some quality trolling opportunities with Drake, especially considering Drake was wearing a black “New York” cap at the game.
