Brooklyn Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Plans to Rap at a Jay-Z Concert

It’s hard to tell if he was joking — after all, Mikhail Prokhorov has spit rhymes on the mic before — but for what it’s worth, the Brooklyn Nets’ majority owner claims that he’s planning to rap at one of business partner Jay-Z’s upcoming concerts. Per Crain’s: “In February, the owner of the Brooklyn Nets, Mikhail Prokhorov, appeared on a Russian television comedy show called Spotlight Paris Hilton, and offered a musical tribute to his co-owner, hip-hop star Jay-Z. ‘Mr. Jay-Z, this rap is for you,’ went the English portion of the lyrics. ‘Mr. Jay-Z, this is the first presentation/of real rap music from Russian Federation. Mr. Jay-Z, you are not alone/Mikhail Prokhorov on the microphone.’ According to Mr. Prokhorov, a reprise is in the works, but this time in downtown Brooklyn, where Jay-Z will open the $1 billion Barclays Center with a series of sold-out concerts this fall. ‘Yes, I will rap at his concert,’ Mr. Prokhorov informed Crain’s via email. ‘I am in rehearsals now 10 hours a day and plan to demand joint billing.’”

    Based on his lyrics above, he’s already light years ahead of Chief Keef, Waka Flocka, Gucci, etc. There’s never a dull moment with this guy, I’ll give him that.

    Wow this is a terrible idea. Oh and I shall tolerate no Waka Flocka slander around these parts. Flockaveli was a classic rap album

    @Kevin yes indeed i do agree Flockavelli was dope not a lyrical masterpeice, but it wasnt meant to be, it was a hood block party anthem.

    @Impala Exactly, that album was full of bangers. The production on there was crazy and Flocka was very entertaining on that album.

    Rap is officially dead when children start talking about Waka and classic rap album in the same sentence. I hate dummies. They even talk like tards.
