Jay-Z Rumors

Wade on Jay Z’s “If Jeezy’s paying LeBron, I’m paying Dwyane Wade”: “This is when I felt like I made it in pop culture. Once Jay Z did it, I felt like I was on that respect level of artists that I respect.” Kanye gave Wade a subtle heads up about the “Two years Dwayne Wayne became Dwyane Wade” line on The Glory. Wade said, “I remember seeing Kanye before I heard it and he was like ‘Yo, you gotta listen to my album. There’s gonna be something on there.’” Check out Wade’s full comments over at Genius.
Durant is represented by Roc Nation Sports and Jay Z. And which team did the hip-hop mogul turned power agent formerly hold a minority ownership stake in? The Nets. Now, let’s add this: The president/chief of branding and strategy of Roc Nation is Michael Yormark. Who is his twin brother? CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment Brett Yormark. Other potential enticing factors could include: the New York market and a chance to play home games in a topflight $1 billion arena; the potential for a prideful player such as Durant to be the top dog in town; and the opportunity to potentially play with more of a pass-first type of point guard, whom the Nets would have to acquire via free agency or trade.
B/R: Your buddy Jay Z had a stake in the Brooklyn Nets. So would you ever consider ownership with an NBA team one day? Diddy: Nah. To be honest, I’m trying to make sure I have a quality in life, trying to hide as an executive. Let them work. I’m trying to just raise my kids and take care of my health and spend time with me a little bit. My new company and my new venture is my health and my spirit. That’s like the biggest corporation I’ve ever started. It’s called Sean Inc.
