Jay-Z rips Scott Boras about stealing Robinson Cano on upcoming album

Jay-Z is taking the sports world by storm just as he did the music industry

Hip hop mogul Jay-Z is taking the sports world by storm, and now he’s calling out the “old guard” in the process.  His current project launched a sports agent firm, called Roc Nation Sports, has already inked big stars like Kevin Durant and Robinson Cano (biggest prize of the 2014 MLB free agent class).  Let’s just say Jay-Z is proud of his work so far, and even called out Scott Boras in an upcoming album.  Boras had represented Cano until Jay-Z signed him away.  The lyrics were reported via Tweet by Darren Rovell of ESPN:

Boras seemed unconcerned about Jay-Z either stealing his clients, or his music, according to ESPN news services

“I’m a fan of jazz,” Boras told’s Wallace Matthews, “and my favorite musician is Bernie Williams. What other musician could play center field for the Yankees and win four world championships?”

Jay-Z is certified to represent both MLB and NBA/WNBA players so far.  The ultimate verdict will come when he inks a client to a first big contract.  Then we’ll see if he can rep players as well as he can rap.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
