Jay-Z is reportedly set to become a part-owner of an NFL team.
According to TMZ, the hip-hop mogul will have “significant ownership interest” in an NFL team. And sources close to the situation claim that Jay decided to make the move “because he’s a huge fan, already has a sports business and wants to continue to be a change agent for the NFL.”
While it is unclear when the deal will be finalised, it was worthy to note that he was previously a minority owner of the Brooklyn Nets.
All of this comes days after news of his entertainment company, Roc Nation’s collaborative partnership with the NFl which has ruffled a lot of feathers, especially because of the league’s beef with Colin Kaepernick.
“I’m not his boss,” Jay said when asked about the quarterback and if he would be involved with the partnership. “I can’t just bring him into something. That’s for him to say.”
We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
