I don’t know what is more evident while he’s dropping his rhymes—his whiteness or his Russian...

As we all know Mikhail Prokhorov is the billionaire mogul, KGB-connected, Russian Presidential candidate/majority owner of the New Jersey-Brooklyn Nets. One of his co-owners is rap legend Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z aka Jigga aka HOVA. To put it simply they both wear a lot of hats. In recent years, Jay-Z has become more of a” business man, not a business,
