Jay-Z Applies To Become Baseball Agent

The Major League Baseball Players Association has announced that Jay-Z has applied to be certified as an agent.

According to USA Today reports, Jay-Z has started the process of becoming a baseball agent. Roc Nation Sports has already partnered with Creative Artists Agency (CAA) Sports in order to represent New York Yankees player Robinson Cano

It seems Jay-Z is also selling his share of the Brooklyn Nets because of issues that may arise if he were to become certified with the Major League Baseball Players Association. Yahoo! Sports reported this earlier in the month. 

Jay-Z also discussed this in his "Open Letter," a song he recently leaked. His verse denied that this was going on. 

"Would've brought the Nets to Brooklyn for free," he rhymes on the track. "Except I made millions off of you fucking dweebs. I still own the building. I'm still keeping my seats. Y'all buy that bullshit, y'all better keep y'all receipts."  

Jay-Z reportedly owns less than one percent of the Nets. However, he has been an important public figure for the team.

    "JAY-Z was 27 in 1996 when they started Roc-a-Fella. If he's so good why wasn't he poppin at a young age? Reasonable Doubt sold bec of the Biggie feature" Ask 50 the same question. Industry politics keep most young talent down. Regardless of why RD sold, it's a perceived classic now. That's all people remember. Jay just needed time to learn the business side of the rap game. Once he did he no longer needed Dash getting a healthy % off the product which was Jay's name.

    "Remember it was Dame Dash that got Jay the record deal and signed Kanye, AND Biggs was pulling the strings too" But Jay was the meal ticket. People didn't buy all those albums for Damon Dash. Plus what did DD expect, to have Jay by his side forever? No, Dash wasn't smart enough to branch off while he still could.

      You're a real fool because you're talk about a man who have done a lot of real business and have sold art that a lot of who your fake favorite can't even your father can't tie his shoes guess that's why you're mad and you can't feed

    • What

      Meal Ticket? Jay wasn't poppin in THE STREETS at all until they pulled the right moves and fed sum real hood niggaz with sum money. JAY-Z was 27 in 1996 when they started Roc-a-Fella. If he's so good why wasn't he poppin at a young age? Reasonable Doubt sold bec of the Biggie feature, Fuck Jay-Z he's lame and mainstream like a muthafucka. Making wack ass songs with Justin homo timberlake.

    I just bought a top of the range Aston Martin DB5 after bringing in $4865 this past month and over ten grand last-month. It's definitely the most comfortable job I have ever had. I began this 8 months ago and straight away was making over $82 per/h. This is what I do, Wow55.com

  • Truth

    Jay-z Fans E.N.V.Y his Money & Lifestyle That's why when you hit them with the truth they just say "You BROKE Hater". They think that WE envy Jay-z like THEY DO. In their world, Money is everything. Just totally blind sheeps. Just what makes Jay-z a "artists"?.. 90% of the time he talks about his money and what he got and what we dont got. So perfect example of why Jay-Z stans love Money and envy his lifestyle
