Move over, Doc Rivers versus Bill Simmons. Now, we have an agent versus agent beef. Sort of.

Grammy-winning rapper Jay-Z, who can now represent MLB and NBA players as an agent, took the time out of his busy schedule to rap about Scott Boras. Yes, the same Scott Boras that used to represent New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano.

Now, Cano is signed with Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports.

Jay-Z will release his highly-anticipated album "Magna Carta Holy Grail" on Thursday and name-checked Boras on the song, "Crown."

"Scott Boras, you over baby. Robinson Cano, you coming with me," Jay-Z raps on the song, according to ESPN.com.

Boras, when asked if he had a reply to what Jay-Z rapped, said the following:

"Baseball has given us everything we have, so we give baseball everything we have, all of the time. We believe that this is the best thing we can do for fans, players and owners, to help players with their total commitment. We don't represent basketball players or football players. We watch, observe and listen to the game. We help the players who play it with a singular purpose, and that is baseball."

"We have a marketing company, but opportunities don't avail themselves unless players become stars. That's our philosophy."

Roc Nation Sports also represents Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin DurantNew York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith and Tulsa Shock guard Skylar Diggins.
