Rapper and sports agent Jay-Z has reportedly dissed fellow sports agent Scott Boras in a rap song off his new album, which will be released on Thursday.
According to ESPN, Jay-Z, on the song “Crown,” reportedly raps, “Scott Boras, you over baby. Robinson Cano, you coming with me.” The album, which will be released on the Fourth of July, is titled, “Magna Carta Holy Grail.”
Jay-Z, of Roc Nation Sports, signed Robinson Cano away from Boras, and broke off his ownership stake in the Brooklyn Nets so that he could represent NBA players. He now represents Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Geno Smith of the New York Jets and Skylar Diggins of the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock.
The sports station has featured Boras in a news story in which the super agent admits he is probably breaking the law by apparently texting into his phone in the car, and in a commercial in which he cuts a deal with a cafeteria cashier.
ESPN was quick to get a response from Boras as well. He stated, “I’m a fan of jazz and my favorite musician is Bernie Williams. What other musician could play center field for the Yankees and win four world championships?”
