Jay-Z rips fellow agents – generalizes Dan Leberfeld
Geno Smith’s agent, Jay-Z, appeared on Power 105.1, and was critical of other agents.
”Those guys have been sitting around just doing the typical things, knock on the same doors. They go to Nike, they do the contract and then they sit back. They don’t do anything else. So they’ve been sitting around for 20-30 years just not doing anything.
“So me coming, that’s a problem for them. Cause now they have to go to work, now they have to wake up, now they have to do things. So they don’t want me around because now they have to do something for these athletes. The bigger goal is for all artists to get their just due. Not to get half-ass agents or people who rob them or people who don’t care about their finances. They’re just taking whatever is going to get them a check.”
Jay-Z is guilty of generalizing.
Of course there are some agents who don’t do a great job for their clients, but so many do.
