I Was 100% Right About Jay-Z

I Was 100% Right About Jay-Z
Posted October 2nd, 2013 @ 1:43pm

Jay Z told Vanity Fair that he believes his past as a drug dealer will help him be a great sports agent.  Because of course that makes any sense at all...

Jay's checkered past taught him a few things that he says will come in handy in his new role as a sports agent: “I know about budgets. I was a drug dealer,” he tells Robinson. “To be in a drug deal, you need to know what you can spend, what you need to re-up. Or if you want to start some sort of barbershop or car wash—those were the businesses back then. Things you can get in easily to get out of [that] life. At some point, you have to have an exit strategy, because your window is very small; you're going to get locked up or you're going to die.”

Huh? I can't imagine two things being more opposite.  Drug dealers deal a commodity that is DEMANDED by addicts.  They will do (and pay whatever) to get it.  But when Robinson Cano wants $305 million?  Good luck explaining how any team needs to pay that, Jay Z.
