Jay-Z's Shout Out at the NBA Lottery Remains an Unsolved Mystery. Please Help.

The lottery was special and utterly satisfying, but one thing has yet haunted me. Namely, who the eff is "Kaiser"? ↵ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵ ↵

↵I thought it might be like Jay-Z's first-name-basis reference to ↵Sonny Vaccaro, showing what an insider he is. Or a member of his crew, ↵emphasizing his lasting ties to where he came from? And why does that ↵Kings fan chuckle like she knows who "Kaiser" is? I smell conspiracy, ↵or a seriously messed-up after party.
↵
↵Regardless, the ↵answer must be out there. And I won't sleep till it's mine.↵
