'm Michael Jordan, I play for the team I own
Jay-Z often makes references to Michael Jordan’s stature as basketballs greatest player in history in regards to his own standing/stature in the Hip-Hop game. Jay-Z not only claims to be the greatest, he also owns the very label which puts out his records (Def Jam) and it’s sub-labels (Roc-Nation, etc). Similar to Michael Jordan’s transition from player to owner with the Washington Wizards. In other words, Jay-Z is the greatest rapper AND he is his own boss.
