Jay-Z tells The New York Daily News he doesn’t think the NBA’s new dress code is racist or a form of censorship on hip-hop culture. “(If) they want to have a more professional look, that’s well and good,” the hip hop mogul, who is a part owner of the New Jersey Nets, told Ohm Youngmisuk. “But to spring it on someone as a mandatory thing in the last two weeks, that rubs me wrong a little way. It is not a classy thing to do. But if that is implemented starting next year, we have to start wearing suits and dress up, hey, the rules are the rules. As far as what I have seen, people relate to guys like Allen Iverson because they feel like he is one of them. Know what I am saying? Not too many people are walking around from where he comes from with Armani suits on.”
