First it was rap star P-Diddy looking to buy the soccer club Crystal Palace, and now it appears Jay Z may be following suit.

The husband of Beyonce, good friend of Lebron James, and international rap mogul who’s estimated worth is $500 million has been a supporter of the Arsenal Gunners ever since Thierry Henry’s stint with the club.

Jay Z also owns a share of the NBA’s New Jersey Nets, who will have a new majority owner next season, Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, so the idea of owning a sports franchise is not a new concept to him.

Maybe purchasing soccer teams is the new trend in the hip-hop industry, so who knows maybe Lil Wayne will take Manchester United off the Glazer family’s hands. After he gets out of prison of course.
