It’s not a secret Mr. Lebron James was highly offended over Phil Jackson “Posse” comment.
On December 6th, Phil Jackson found himself in some hot water last month following an interview with ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan where he used the word “posse” when referring to LeBron James’s colleagues. Jackson appeared on CBS Sports Network’s ‘We Need To Talk’ where he kinda, sorta got into that now infamous “posse” remark. “That’s a topic I’m not going to discuss because, one, we’re not supposed to discuss other teams’ players in this position that I have here,” the Zen Master said. “So I violated one of the tenets of our thing. And the obvious thing is, the word itself carries connotation. And I just don’t understand that part of it, the word. So I guess word choice could be something I could regret. But yeah, talking about other teams’ players, that’s out of the box.”
Don’t worry Jigga has Lebron James back in the issue.
Jay Z introduced James at Monday night’s ceremony honoring the Cavs superstar as Sports Illustrated’s 2016 Sportsperson of the Year. Jay Z shade the phuck out of Phil Jackson.
He’s a dedicated family man who married his high school sweetheart, Savannah,” Jay-Z said of James. “Has three lovely children. He’s the son who honors and worships his mother Gloria. The friend who put his ‘posse’ in position. I know. We know where we come from.”
We do understand where we come from, and the only difference between us and someone who has their MBA from Wharton or Sloan or Berkeley or Stanford is opportunity,” Jay-Z continued. “LeBron James has provided his friends with that opportunity. And as we witness their development, and if we’re looking up at the scoreboard, very few, very few businessmen are better than Maverick Carter, Rich Paul, Randy Mims, and all the rest of the ‘posse’ behind the scenes that make it look like they’re just hanging out.
“LeBron James has made all of those around him better on and off the court. We acknowledge and recognize all he has done for the game. But tonight, LeBron, we say thank you. Not just for your commitment to basketball. We say thank you for all you have done in the community. And thank you for how you’ve enriched the lives of everyone around you. You messed around and got a triple-double in real life.”
More details on Jigga and Prince ongoing dispute over the late Prince’s records.
Court documents show that Roc Nation, the entertainment company founded by rap mogul Jay Z, tried but failed to get chosen to manage Prince’s musical assets in the weeks after the rock superstar’s death.
The documents stem from a dispute between Prince’s record company and Jay Z’s music streaming service Tidal, which is playing out in both state and federal court in Minnesota.
The trust company overseeing Prince’s estate says the dispute belongs only in federal court, where PRN Records is suing Roc Nation for copyright infringement for making a large part of Prince’s catalog available to its subscribers, allegedly without permission.
Tidal adds this lawsuit to the ongoing legal matters with the company.
Tidal is being sued by a former employee over pregnancy discrimination.
TMZ reports Lisette Paulson filed a lawsuit against the streaming service after she was fired the day after requesting a private room to use a breast pump.
Paulson’s suit alleges that Desiree Perez of Tidal denied her request for a private room, telling her to use the bathroom instead. Perez allegedly asked Paulson if pumping was necessary and grew frustrated when she insisted on a private space. Paulson says that Perez told her there would be a meeting regarding the matter, however, a day after the meeting, Paulson was fired.
Jay Z is currently dealing with a legal battle with Prince’s estate over Prince’s catalog.
