05:14 PM ET 06.20 | Jay-Z's transition from owner to agent is nearing completion, as the rapper-turned-mogul-turned-Brooklyn Nets stakeholder is officially a licensed NBA agent.

Rules state that owners can't be agents, but Jay-Z hasn't yet found a buyer for his share of the Nets, rumored to be 1/15 of a percent of the team. It's reported he might be able to take on clients so long as the sale seems imminent. His agency, Roc Nation Sports, is expected to sign Kevin Durant as soon as the league clears his ability to represent players.

Jay-Z has also officially become a licensed MLB agent as well.

When asked why he preferred doing business with white people over black people. Ray Charles said white people want to do business. Black people try to buddy up to you to take your money. And when they get caught. They try to act like your brother and made a mistake. Now is Jay-Z going to do that. No. But I can see him buddy up to a player telling him everything that he wants to hear. But when the deal goes bad. I can see Jay-Z try to down play his mistakes and be all friends with the player that just got screwed. Look at Master P and No Limit. The player that they represented got hosed and taken to the cleaners.

Two different situations. Quoting what one black person said many years ago doesn't give relevance to what you are suggesting may happen, disclaimer or not. Master P's agency screwed up because they were inexperienced and made the contract heavy on incentives that the player had difficulty reaching and the bonus was deferred. He didn't buddy up to anyone and try to take their money so whatever point you are trying to make is invalid. All of these guys are already multimillionaires and an agent gets a small percentage of the contract so what would be the point of trying to take a few hundred thousand or even a couple of million from an NFL player when you are busy trying to get your foot in the door? Just how would he 'take your money' when you have a valid piece of paper stating what percentage the agent collects? Try again.

A fifteenth of one percent? Amazing.
