So here is what happened Jay-Z was spotted hanging with the college basketball team, the Kentucky Wildcats after their win over the University of North Carolina. Well there could be a conflict of interest…maybe…because the NBA is concerned that there could be under the table recruiting which could affect the draft…it all about the politics!

According to, the NBA is launching an official investigation into exactly why the hip-hopster was chillin’ with the Kentucky Wildcats in their locker room Sunday after they secured a spot in the Final Four.

Jay, a part-owner of the New Jersey Nets, sparked interest from the prying eyes of the NBA after Kentucky guard Darius Miller tweeted a pic of the rapper, in shades and a hoodie, with the team in the Prudential Center in Newark after their win against the University of North Carolina. Hova can also be seen in a postgame video greeting the players coming off the court, giving first-bumps and back slaps before following the team into the locker room.

Well, with Wildcats Terrence Jones and Brandon Knight potential lottery picks in the upcoming NBA draft, the league wants to make sure Jay wasn’t trying to sway the two with under-the-table recruiting.
