As there are several companies who lobbied for the job, NBC New York reports that the bidding to revamp the coliseum is now down to four proposals including Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. Mr. Carter attended a meeting Thursday to discuss the building’s renovation plans. Although he was seen taking pictures with Nassau County officials, Jay-Z did not speak during the meeting.

The renovation decisions are said to be made by this summer.
