Jay-Z and nepotism at its finest

      It seems that if you get down with Jay-Z, he’d take care of you more than the average homie – just ask Memphis Bleek. But now it seems like Jay is even going as far as hooking up Beyonce’s momma. With Jiggaman having a stake in the New Jersey – soon to be Brooklyn – Nets, it seems obvious that he had a little influence on Dereon, a junior collection of clothes from House of Deréon, which is designed by Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles,  being named the official sponsor of the Nets Dancers.

      "The Nets Dancers are such a fun part of going to the games," Tina told the NY Post. "We are thrilled to be able to provide Deréon wardrobe for these extremely talented young women."

      No word on when the Nets dancers will start sporting the new gear, Dereon gear, which is co-owned by Beyonce, but you can expect the Nets in Brooklyn for the 2009-2010 season.
