Sports Agent Scott Boras Throws Subliminal Shots At Jay Z

(AllHipHop News) Jay Z was very blatant when he called out fellow sports agent Scott Boras after signing his former client Robinson Cano earlier this year. On his song “Crown”, the Brooklyn emcee announced “Scott Boras you over baby.” Jay may have referred to the long-time agent by name on the Magna Carta Holy Grail track, but Boris took a more veiled swipe back at the rapper this week.

When asked about the $240 million, 10 year contract Roc Nation Sports/CAA secured for Cano with the Seattle Mariners, Boras suggested it was the former Yankees’ talent that made the deal possible not his affiliation with Jay.

“It’s very different to be the creator of the umbrella versus those who stand under it,” stated Boras at the baseball winter meetings. “When you’re bringing the prettiest girl to the prom, you don’t really pay attention to who he’s dancing with, unless it’s a very unusual step.”

While Boras downplayed Jay Z’s role in the final outcome, critics casted Jay as the problem when it appeared the deal was in jeopardy. Once the second baseman signed the third biggest contract in baseball history, some in the media still criticized Jay for taking Cano out of New York.

Whether Jay was the goat or the G.O.A.T. in the Cano/Mariners negotiations is still being debated. What is clear is Roc Nation Sports has the sports world paying attention, and one of the company’s other big clients, NFL star Victor Cruz, seems to be pleased with the direction the Roc is headed.

      You just mad….

    • ZUBU

      Damn I cannot believe I finally agreed with you! Boras has probably signed billions of dollars worth of contracts. Jay doing this is akin to boras making one rap hit that sells well, and thinking he is a good as Jay… IJS

      • black god

        When they start hating that means you doing something right.

      • ZUBU

        Nobody hating I’m just stating factual stuff. Jay a complete novice in this arena, while Boras is a seasoned expert. Not to mention Jay is essentially a figurehead. You are aware that Roc Nation Sports Mgt, is under the umbrella of a larger well established sports agency? You do know that correct?
        I hope so cause Jay talking that smack had a lot of people thinking he owned the Net and the Barclayys arena. In reality he owned 1/16th of 1% of the nets, yet he was boasting on songs how he the owner… SMH no hate but a lot of yall bought into that talk.

      • LetsBeRealpeople

        They don’t know, but I am glad you put the truth to print.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        If you own 1% or a 100% your still a owner. Stop hating. Your comment sound like a old head telling some one young I’m older then you…….yeah boras is season and jay is new but one time boras was new so saying that is pointless. And you comparing what jay is building to boras making 1 rap hit makes no sense since jay done had more then 1 athlete cake up on them deals…….. Stop hating

      • ZUBU

        Bro if you have 1/16 of 1% of any company no that does not make you the owner, you are what is labeled a minority investor. The majority investors make the decisions, as a minority investor you are essentially a silent partner. The majority investors use your money as they see fit, as a minority investor you trust the majority investors to make sound business decisions with your money. Example when Jordan was a minority investor with the Washington Wizards they did let Jordan run basketball operations initially, then they talked him into returning as a player. When it was all said in done they fired Jordan, gave him his minority investment back and showed him the door. That is why Jordan is the true owner now, nobody can show him the door.

        Bro I have an IRA account which invests in all types of companies, and using your logic hell I own about 10-15 fortune 500 companies because I certainly have a micro investment in an assortment of companies. So I’m an old head as you said but at least I’m a wise old head. Miss me with all that you a hater shit; I’m jealous shit. Like is it a generational thing for some of you young dudes to scream hate whenever someone drops some science you don’t understand? Are you picking up what I’m putting down?

      • Pierre Elliott

        RIGHT???? NO ONES HATING ON JAY BUT JAY IS NOT DOING WHAT YOU THINK HE IS DOING—JUST CAUSE HE SAID IT ON RECORD.

      • golder1

        Jay is doing exactly what he said on record. He signed Cano away from Boras. He signed K.D. And he is successful in his business ventures. What you speak is far from the truth. Noone can amass that type of fortune and not know how to handle their business. If you were coming from a place of facts people probably would say you are hating but what you speak is an opinion.

      • Pierre Elliott

        no…. its the truth.

      • golder1

        No, its your opinion. the truth can be substantiated. what you said cant. So that makes it an opinion!

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        “Boras has probably signed billions of dollars worth of contracts. Jay doing this is akin to boras making one rap hit that sells well, and thinking he is a good as Jay”

        is why i said your hating……….

        your basing what your saying off of the cano (im assuming) deal like their isnt a slew of other athletes that got caked up messing with jay, i think the guy name is larry johnson from the chief caked up on a deal and he a bum.

        “Jay a complete novice in this arena, while Boras is a seasoned expert”

        is another reason why i said stop hating……….
        anything your new at you will be a novice, there was a time jay was a novice in the rap game……….clothing……..owning clubs etc etc. and guess what there was a time scott boras was a novice too. and since that point made no sense i said stop hating.

        as for the percentage………..i said still A owner not THE owner, but that aside he done sold his percentage and moved on from that.

        i never said YOUR a old head, i dont know you. i said its like a old head telling someone young “im older then you”….so to be clear, i used that as an example to you saying boras is season and jay is just a novice. a old head telling a young’in im older……duh you older and you always gonna be older cause your moms had you b4 mines did. so duh boras is gonna be season cause he did it longer. got it?

        and all that jabber at the end imma just ignore……….

      • Get em bruh! Like you said, it’s like no one can kick knowledge or have an opinion anymore without bein labeled a hater just cuz these fools wanna get sensitive. They’re so quick to call someone a hater but not realizin they’re bein the very thing they condemn by “hatin” on what someone else said, just cuz THEY don’t agree with or understand it.

      • golder1

        But everyone knows JayZ made a lot of decisions even though he owned less than 1%. Just like Magic owns about 2% of Dodgers but he makes a lot of decisions. So, minority partners are not always silent or not invloved in the decision making process. They dont call them investors, they labeled them part owners but not majority owners. Which is a big difference. Just becasue these young dudes are coming at your giving your opinion on the subject doesnt make you wise becasue what you speak is not entirely true.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        It bugs me out how they can’t see the difference between a opinion and str8 up hating on someone. And I’m not a sports person but I did read about magic and the dodgers deal. What trips me out is when we don’t have black people in certain positions we complain about the lack of representation, when we do have representation then we complain about the representer, if the fail we celebrate the fall of the representer then we go back to complaining about the lack of representation again. Shits weird. But the whole ownership thing……I had to ignore it cause if the Zubu guy don’t get that even at 1% ur still AN owner……..not majority and not THE owner but AN owner then what else is you supposed to say lol

      • MONEY BLANKO

        u avoiding wat matters jayz frm marcy projects drug dealer shuld b no whr there u dub fuk so common sense but u dnt have none would tell u he’s winning n that everything hes doing is a victory. ya degree means shit, knowledge is ever lasting n yall schools are shitty in america wit lies n basic info. malcol x proved that verses harvard n yale students. so fuk yo degrees.

      • golder1

        Jay never said he owned the Nets, just becasue people speculated is not his problem. On his songs he never said he owned the Nets. He spoke of being an owner and being able to do what he pleases at that stadium which he could. As far as him being a figure head for his company is half true. As they stated and Cano, Jayz was every meeting for this deal. Get your facts straight. And Boras has other who work at his firm, he is not the only one closing deals but he takes credit for them all. You did know that…right?

      • MONEY BLANKO

        are u a retard can u name the last brooklyn project coing frm selling drug hustler top elite rapper as of now to eva have any form of money frm sports period. so shut the fuk up. its not common its rare thats y u congradulate not fukin hate. wen reasonable doubt dropped u think yrs later he would kno he has any say so in a b ball arena n now sports agent. stop fukin hating.

    • coach jenkins

      Cano $240 mill, Cruz $40 plus mill plus skylar diggins endorsements deal
      the camel as you call him is making moves plus who you think a 21 rookie gonna sign with Jay or a 60 year white guy.

      He got Cano almost a quarter of a billion dollars deal, thats crazy.

    • golder1

      You sound just as dumb as Boras. Boras didnt say shit. Boras upset Jay took Cano. To succeed in that industry you must know contracts and I think Jay has dealt with plenty of contracts and negotiations in his 20 yrs in music.

  • Jehiel

    JayZ secured the 3rd largest deal in MLB history with a 2nd baseman who is clearly on the back 9 of his career… Boras sounds a tad bitter.

      ANOTHER GHETTO BLACK GUY WHO WANTS TO LIVE OUT HIS WHITE FANTASIES

      • golder1

        Boras didnt creat the game of being an agent. Idiot theri are other minorites other Jay who are envolved in sports and being an agent. Just becasue it is dominated by whites should stop anyone from putting their foot in the door. Only weak ass like yourself would think like that. Ignorance should be you middle name.

    • golder1

      How did he lie? You dont know what the hell you are talking about. Just becasue he said Jay didnt do anything to get this deal done doesnt make it true. All players play themselves into bigger pay days not the agents So what Boras said can aplly to him. 2nd as far as the money Jayz net worth is 4 times what Boras is worth so your big money statements makes zero sense. So, stop sound like a dumb nigga…NIGGA

    • MONEY BLANKO

      shut yo dumbass up, u a fuking hater. its one thing to try n prove ya point but nigga name the last brooklyn project living rich considered top 3 dead or alive to eva pull off wat hes doing??????? i dnt give a fuk if he influenced then he deserves props which he did. yall stupid hating faggots act like niggas like him do dis on the regular

  • lando

    Yall giving J too much credit. Now if he was able to get Cano that same deal in NY after they told him no then I would give him props. But he didn’t. He really just getting the same offer with 3 additional years. Seattle cmon man. Cano know dam well he didn’t want to go there. But you can’t hate on him getting money though.
