June was a BAWSE month for Hova. In addition to announcing the signings of Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III, and Zhaire Smith, Puma just revealed that Jay-Z will be joining the company as president of basketball operations, right on the heels of the Everything Is Love album release, which just hit Spotify, Apple Music and SoundCloud.

 

The Puma position didn't exactly materialize from nothing: The shoe brand has a been a consistent Tidal promotional partner, and Jay has been known to stunt in Pumas just as consistently. He even collab'd with Puma on a shoe for the 4:44 release, the Jay Z x Puma Clyde.

 

Words to remember: "I'm not a businessman, I'm a business, man."
