Lately, he has been venturing into the sports agency business, and he has already made a rather large splash.
Not surprisingly, some of the folks who were already in that particular business aren't all that thrilled about him trying to take over their turf.
It seems like Jay-Z doesn't care too much about that, and isn't afraid to let them know.
Already, he has poached MLB superstar Robinson Cano from Scott Boras, one of the biggest agents in the business.
Not only did he target an elite soon-to-be free agent from one of the best agents in sports, he had the audacity to rap about it on his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail.
He's reportedly targeting Yasiel Puig and Yoenis Cespedes next. Perhaps he's trying to corner the market on elite Cuban outfielders, but these are two rather promising young players who could be international superstars if marketed properly.
No matter what happens, Jay-Z is an entertainer first. If he's good at running a sports agency, he'll make tons of money. If he's not, he could lose just as much. Either way, it WILL be entertaining.
