‘A Fabolous Night’ of Roc Nation Throne Boxing (Video)

Life is a b!tch. I knew right after I met her…

If you need more convincing that ‘Loso is that dude, maybe this post isn’t for you. This is a see-the-man-shining video. Gerard Victor put this vid together like a moment in time set to “Gone For the Winter” (featuring Velous) off “The Young OG Project” (out now).

Fabolous performs at Roc Nation Sports first annual Throne Boxing Event in Madison Square Garden January 9th, 2015.

Think of it like a short film highlighting Fabolous going to work at a higher level. Fight night. Everybody is out…celebrating. And he will, too. But he’s gotta work first. Watch and listen.

The ESPYS: Comedian Jay Pharaoh As ‘Jay-Z The Sports Agent’ (Video)

If you missed the ESPY awards two nights ago then you probably missed this hilarious skit by comedian Jay Pharoah as he impersonates Jay Z ‘The Sports Agent’. Many people are not happy with the idea of Jay Z becoming a sports agent like rival agent Scott Boras with whom Jay Z took a shot at in a song on his new album. Those individuals wary about Jay Z entering into the sports world representing athletes may love this skit because it addresses the elephant in the room about people’s feelings on Jay Z guiding these athlete’s careers.  Even Master P spoke with some caution when he recently elaborated on Jay Z’s move into the sports management business & how he may need to be fully prepared.  Many of those unspoken issues were unveiled in this comedic skit by comedian Jay Pharoah at the ESPY awards that found some in the audience, who may or may not be doing business with Jay Z, not laughing at.

According to some sports talk radio reports his former agent allegedly stated he could have gotten him more but he chose to go with Roc Nation Sports. Big business politics aside, Jay Pharoah’s skit is hilarious. Only 1 or 2 comedians can do a great job on the Sean Carter impressions Like Aaries Spears.

ESPN First Take: Master P States His Opinions On Jay Z Entering The Sports Agency Business (Video)

The first rapper to enter into the world of representing pro athletes was Master P. By now everyone should be familiar with the infamous deal that former NFL running back Ricky Williams signed with the New Orleans Saints that didn’t go over well in his favor. Master P stopped by ESPN’s First Take to speak with Stephen A. Smith & Skip Bayless to give his opinion on Jay Z’s entrance into the world of sports agency. Having dealt with the ups & downs of formerly running his no defunct NO LIMIT SPORTS agency, it was interesting to see Master P choose his words carefully without being negative or discouraging even though it feels like he’s saying it may not be the best move for a few parties involved.
