Jay-Z will soon acquire a “significant ownership interest” in an NFL team, TMZ reported on Friday. The team was not disclosed, but a source told the site the deal will happen in the “near future,” adding that the billionaire rapper “wants to continue to be a change agent for the NFL.”
Such a deal would make Jay-Z the first black team owner in league history.
Bleacher Report notes, adding that many insiders say he has long wanted to own an NFL franchise. “The deal with the NFL nudges Jay-Z far closer to that goal, if that indeed is the objective,” said Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.
Asked about such a conflict with the NFL, sources told TMZ, “Jay is not an NFL agent and does not take part in the operations of the NFL players in Roc Nation.”
Jay Z is a business, man.
