Jay Z’s Being Investigated By MLBPA For Giving Gift To Robinson Cano

(AllHipHop News) On Watch The Throne‘s “N***as In Paris” Jay Z rapped “What’s 50 grand to a motherf**king like me?” in response to a $50,000 fine issued by the NBA. It will be interesting to see if Jay has a few bars in the future for the Major League Baseball Players Association after the union decided to investigate the new sports agent for giving a gift to one of his Roc Nation Sports clients.

According to ESPN, the MLBPA is looking into a possible agent regulation violation stemming from a $33,900 watch Robinson Cano received from Roc Nation. Cano was given the limited-edition Hublot Shawn Carter Classic Fusion during his 31st birthday celebration in Belgium last month. He posted a photo of the timepiece on Instagram.

Union rules state that any gift from an agent to a client over $500 must be disclosed in writing. The regulations are to ensure players choose agents based on merits and not favors. If it is determined that Jay Z did violate the rules he could face an unspecified disciplinary action.

In a very impressive coup, Jay got Cano to leave high-profile sports agent Scott Boras and sign with Roc Nation Sports/Creative Artists Agency in April. The sought-after free agent is currently looking to sign 10-year, $310 million contract with Yankees.
