Hardcore rapper still fancies a slice of the Arsenal pie

Jay-Z and Beyonce (not his problem)

Jay Z and Beyonce 

It’s not the first time that the rapper/fashion designer Jay-Z has talked about buying a stake in Arsenal. In fact, he’s reportedly been toying with the idea for about five years.

Now, as reported by our pals over at Pies, the man who Arsene Wenger would have to touch fists with at awkward self-conscious boardroom meetings, said this:

“We would have to spend much more time in London. ‘Bey’ knows how much I love sports and has known about my interest in Arsenal for a while.”

“I never want to be a back-seat investor. I want to be on the board, involved in the decision-making… I’m at the stage of my career where I am ready for another investment like this.”

“I have really got into soccer over the last 10 years and I’ve been saying for some time I want a percentage of Arsenal.”

Here’s the man born Shawn Corey Carter at his day job…
