This just in – surprising most in the sports industry, and perhaps showing his stripes as an amateur sports agent, famed businessman and hip-hop artist Jay-Z takes on former baseball favorite Darryl Strawberry as a client. Jay-Z defends his choice:
What’s great about Straws is that he’s so versatile and such an amazing athlete. I could get him into basketball, soccer, baseball, whatever. He’s a cashcow. Sure he’s a few years older than the young bucks out there, but no one will see him coming. He has the strength of 2 cheetahs and the speed of a much younger man. I think we can get him into a 7 year 1 billion+ dollar contract.
