Jay-Z on agents: “Me coming, that’s a problem for them”


Jay-Z  and his Roc Nation Sports Agency has added a diverse list of clients and the rapper told Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club Morning Show that he is a problem for sports agents.

“Scott Boras, you over baby, Robinson Cano, you coming with me” raps Jay-Z on the track “Crown” for his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail.

To which Boras cleverly quipped “I love jazz. I’m a huge Bernie Williams fan.

Of course the story would not stop there with Jay-Z implying that sport agents in general are afraid of him.

“Those guys have been sitting around just doing the typical things.”

“Knock on the same doors. They go to Nike, they do the contract and then they sit back. They don’t do anything else. So they’ve been sitting around for 20-30 years just not doing anything.”
“So me coming, that’s a problem for them. Cause now they have to go to work, now they have to wake up, now they have to do things. So they don’t want me around because now they have to do something for these athletes. The bigger goal is for all artists to get their just due. Not to get half-ass agents or people who rob them or people who don’t care about their finances. They’re just taking whatever is going to get them a check.”
What Jay-Z actually plans to do with his client list remains to be seen.
