Since it’s been a Jay-Z-heavy day already, we figured one more Jigga story wouldn’t hurt anyone.
For those of you who don’t follow soccer, let us catch you up on the enigma that is Man City’s Mario Balotelli. Balotelli is a supremely talented striker who’s also completely out of his mind. When he’s not scoring goals for City, he does things get in rolling pin sword fights at Indian restaurants, accidentally set his house on fire while shooting fireworks out of the window, and party with mobsters.
Now, he wants to drag race Jay-Z. He’s asked British MC Tinchy Strider, who knows both men, to set it up for him. So far Tinchy has declined. Via The Sun:
Tinchy said: “When I first met him, he said to me, ‘I heard you know Jay-Z, have you got his number?’
“I said, ‘No I haven’t’ and he said, ‘Well the next time you see him, I want to race him.’
“Mario had just bought a new car and said if Jay-Z’s got a faster car then he’ll race him.”
“I’m not sure if Jay-Z even drives himself any more.”
Please God, someone call Jay and make this happen. This would be amazing.
