This may sound like an odd comparison, but when Jay-Z decided to get into sports agency, he really didn't do it for the huge profits. He basically went into it to put other agents feet to the fire. When a prospect comes out of HS, the moment he becomes eligible for the draft (really before that) these agents pitch the same shit to him. Hit up the same sneaker companies. Hit up a soda company. Then they sit on their hands. They don't think outside of the box. Bob Arum is a lazy promoter. His fights are permutations of the same fighters. If you're anything other than a balls to the wall fighter then he wants nothing to do with you. At some point, someone needs to call him out OTHER than Floyd Mayweather. I thought it would be Bradley but it seems like he's backed off.

Da hell you talking about, everything homie do is for profit lol....Jay is a bad example. That new album he got out has changed the landscape for the worse, on a business end it was great but on the hip-hop side of things he sold out. LL and other peers of his have blasted him for it and the hip-hop community, though I don't know how sizeable feels it was a sellout move too. No one believes that album is plat, he sold a mil copies to samsung but not the actual consumer, the he talks about new rules, FOH lol

Now his sports agency, that ain't really his. Why people give this dude so much credit for not doing shit is baffling lol. He's in collaboration with CAA, for those of you who don't know that's Creative arts agency and their a powerhouse in the sports agent industry, when they sign to Jay, they signed to CAA. Don't let the wool get pulled over your eyes. You comparing the same dudes, they both don't do shit unless it's for the money. One just happens to be black the other white

I was wondering why he even pulled that move, I mean shit, its a pretty good album, one of his best in a while, so it was no need to take that Samsung route like that. The commercials he made with the top tier producers in the game, was enough to sell me, and Im never the first to jump on the Jay-Z bandwagon when his albums drop.

Leave it to some of these cats out here (mostly guys that work with), from what I was hearing about his recent album, dudes were calling it the "album of the year", and they hadn't even played 3 songs yet. The pink panties get to flying real quick, when Jay drops something. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

As for LL, I remember reading his "thoughts" on Jay went about the Magna Carta album. My question is, when ISN'T LL in his feelings about stuff?

I like Jay Z but I never saw the greatness that many see in him. He's lost multiple battles been busted upside his head by Pun(rip) and didn't do shit. And he makes all this money and doesn't give back. Harry Belafonte called him out and he tried to snap back until the media dug deep into his and Beyonce's history of giving back which is damn near non-existent.

He gets too much credit for things he don't really do. Like this sports agency stuff, he got in the game by partnering with the biggest sports agency in the world in CAA. But people think he's the brain trust lol. As far as that album goes that was the Illest move from a business pov because it's never been done before and it was monumental from that standpoint. But from a hip-hop pov it was one of the biggest sell out moves ever. You sell a million copies to a corporation but not to a million people. It's the people that count not the fortune 500's but to him that's all that matters is the money.

That's what LL brought up as well he and other legends like KRS feel it was a sellout move. Not many fans was feeling it either. Pusha T's album that's out now is better then Jay's, so is J. Cole's new joint
