… has a platinum album before it’s even released to the public. But before we get into that.
JAY said, “Let’s relinquish this old title of minority owner. I don’t do anything in the minority”. Now he’s going to make money from players individually. That’s a lot more capital in the bank.
Roc Nation Sports, JAY’s newly established Sports Agency, has 3 licensed agents, RN Sports President Juan Perez (NBA), Kim Miale (NFL) & JAY (NBA and MLB). They’ve already signed New York Yankees 2nd Baseman Robinson Cano, New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith and Skylar Diggins, the former Notre Dame star recently drafted to the Tulsa Shock of the WNBA. His next two projects, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and the NBA’s budding young star, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant.
Banana Sammiches CRAZY, we know. But there’s more… (note the first line of the post.)
OK, maybe it won’t go platinum immediately, but JAY’s new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, has already sold 1 million copies to Samsung. He said it’s time to write new rules for the industry and here they are. The purchased copies will be distributed to 1 million lucky Samsung S3, S4 and Note II users… for FREE.
The catch… of course there’s one. Starting June 24, S3, S4 and Note II users will be able to download the Magna Carta Holy Grail app via the Android Google Play Store. Samsung will choose 1 million people to receive the album. Then at 12:01AM ET on July 4, the album will already be downloaded into the app, ready for listening pleasure.
JAY Z, Swizz Beatz, Rick Rubin, Timbaland & Pharrell… AHHH!!!
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, JAY Z is a BEAST, both musically and in an entrepreneurial sense. These examples are evidence. Look out for two things on the horizon, pictures of JAY Z, Kevin Durant and many other sports stars all over the internet & Magna Carta Holy Grail, on shelves July 4.
“The album is about, like this duality of how do you navigate through this whole thing, through success, through failures, through all this and remain yourself.”
