Lebron James introduces rookie Norris Cole to Jay-Z

You rarely see athletes star struck, but it does happen from time to time.

Lebron James and Jay-Z are boys. Norris Cole is a big Jigga fan, and Lebron being the big brother like he is to a lot of younger guys in the league, gave his rookie team mate an opportunity to meet Hova after the Miami Heat dismantled the New Jersey Nets in the fourth quarter.

Cool moment for Norris Cole. But next time…don’t try to look like a lil kid who just got a jersey from Mean Joe Green!


Video: Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov channels Jay-Z, raps

I love the non stuffy rich people. You know the people who are so rich that they can buy a country? That’s rich by any standards.

But when you are a rich/wealthy owner of a basketball franchise, it’s good to let the common people see that you have a sense of humor.

Case in point . New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov on some type of television show, rapping.

Do you think he’s been taking some lessons from Jay-Z? More than likely not. But not a bad attempt. At least he’s got rhythm.


Jay-Z To Stop Using The B-word

Rap Mogul and new father Jay-Z is still celebrating the birth of Blue Ivy Carter. Days after the first child of r&b singer Beyonce and Jay-Z was birthed, the infant who has yet to utter any real words, landed on the Billboard charts at #74 when her dad released the song “Glory” featuring B.I.C. The song is Jay’s tribute to the newborn baby, making her the youngest artist to ever make the chart.

Drake is Basketball’s Biggest Groupie

Watching Drake at Game 7 of the Raptors and Nets playoff game, I thought to myself, “What if the Raptors lose, how long before Drake is at all the Heat games?” and I thought to myself he is the epitome of a bandwagon fan. Then I realized like all the strippers and prostitutes that travel to every big NBA game or All-Star weekend, Drake does the same thing. Like he is trying to get with all the big names. Always trying to party with them and get his picture taken with them. Just like a true groupie, except this groupie has groupies of his own. Read the rest of this entry »


The Heat Lack Competition in the East

The Notorious B.I.G. use to ask, “Where Brooklyn at?” and looking at these Eastern Conference standings I have to ask the same thing. As a matter of fact where the Knicks or Bulls at for that matter? The Pacers aside, the Heat lack competition in the east. If the playoffs where to start today, Washington, Toronto and the Bobcats would be in. Brooklyn and the Knicks not so much so. Weren’t the Nets and the Knicks expected to be the ones chomping on the heels of the Heat in the standings? Read the rest of this entry »

Jay Z To Buy Bahamian Island ?

Jay Z
The Jiggaman is reportedly dropping a whopping 2 million dollars on his own land in North Abaco so his wifey BEYONCE and daughter BLUE IVY can have a peaceful holiday in Paradise. The hip hop mogul is banking that it really is better in the Bahamas.

A source said: “Jay’s been looking for a private island for the family.

“He wants to turn it into his own Necker Island like Richard Branson.

“He’s getting it partly to mark their fifth wedding anniversary but also, with Bey back in the spotlight, it’s getting impossible for them to do normal things such as go to the beach with Blue.

North Abaco , a short flight from Miami, has shoddy phone reception and no satellite TV. Just perfect to get away from the overly zealous paparazzi.


Roc Nation Sports Management is here


“I’m not a business man, I’m a BUSINESS, man”- Jay-Z

When he uttered those words so long ago, you knew that Shawn Carter was serious about his business. He wasn’t out to run the hip hop world. He was out to run the business world.

The first athlete signed to Roc Nation Sports was New York Yankee second baseman Robinson Cano. I can only think that with the name Jay-Z behind this venture, the list of athletes to sign on with him will only become bigger and better.

Roc Nation announced today that it had signed a partnership deal with Creative Artists Agency (CAA) to move into sports management, with the new wing of the company known as Roc Nation Sports. Cano, a four-time all-star who has spent his entire career with the New York Yankees and is in the final year of a $57 million contract (according to ESPN), will be co-managed by the two companies.

“Because of my love of sports, it was a natural progression to form a company where we can help top athletes in various sports the same way we have been helping artists in the music industry for years,” said Jay-Z in a statement.

I can’t wait for the first non black athlete to sign with them, and then proceed to throw up the Roc sign.
