Jay-Z is not a humble man, nor should he be. A colossus of modern urban music, he has achieved a level of popularity in the industry and with all walks of the public unrivalled by his contemporaries. What was clear from his performance at London's Wireless festival was that he didn't scale these heights through charm alone.

More apparent American interest in buying into English football, this time from rapsters P-Diddy and Jay-Z. No clue why the former is interested in Crystal Palace, apart from saying he "likes the name". As for Jay-Z, his target is Arsenal, whom he started supporting in the days of Thierry Henry: "Ever since then I've been a big fan of the club," he claims. The artist formerly known as Shawn Carter is now an eminently respectable businessman, but his, ahem, rap sheet includes shooting his brother at the age of 12 and other incidents involving knives and pistols along the way. So the Gunners seem somehow appropriate. If they're not interested there's always Sheffield United, aka the Blades.
