Of course someone would compile the research to see if it supports Jay-Z or not in declaring lacrosse soft.
But let's take Jay-Z's line literally for a second. Is it actually true, as Major League Lacrosse claims, that lacrosse is, as sports go, pretty hard? Are its athletes as fit, on average, as athletes in other sports? Do they have equally strong muscles, or equally impressive aerobic capacities?

Welcome to hip-hop in 2014: on the newest DJ Khaled track "They Don't Love You No More," Jay Z raps "Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my drawstring / Wrong sport boy, you know you soft as a lacrosse team," in a possible Drake diss. This didn't go over well with Major League Lacrosse, who took the opportunity to lambast Hov, claiming that he "wouldn't last one minute on a lacrosse field," and go on to say "he is more than welcome to come to any of our games and try."
Lacrosse is often called the fastest sport on two feet. Players are on the field dodging and shooting balls at over 100 miles per hour.
With that said we don’t think Jay-Z knows what he’s talking about when he calls...

Rumor has it that Beyoncé and Jay Z are planning a national tour as co-headliners this summer. Supposedly called "The Mr. and Mrs. Carter Tour," it will run from June 13 through August 6, with eventual European dates planned as well.

This article on The Daily Beast, by Rawiya Kameir, discusses how Jay Z's business side has led to him appearing not trustworthy.
Last fall, critics and fans wanted to see Jay Z take a principled stance by publicly condemning Barney's for its proven track record of racially profiling black customers; instead, he moved to donate 100 percent, rather than the original 25 percent, of his capsule line's revenue to charity. No doubt contracts and other constraints limited his choices, but it further entrenched the perception that he is actively retreating deeper into strictly self-serving territory. The same applies to his involvement with the Brooklyn Nets, whose Barclays Center eyesore is a...

Jay-Z and Beyonce are going to go vegan for 22 days.
Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way. On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a “plant-based breakfast” everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought…

Why now? There’s something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas...

Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) is apparently not a fan of Jay Z. On a recent interview with CBC Radio 2's The Strombo Show, Homme talked about his experience at Jay Z's "Made In American" Festival and how he didn't like getting frisked by security or taking a picture with a bottle of champagne. You can listen to the entire interview in the replies.
"That guy's a kook, you know," Josh Homme said. "He has his security frisking the bands on the way in." When security asked to look through his bag, Homme threatened not to play the festival. "No one's ever done that," he said of his previous festival experiences. Then, of Jay Z, he said, "You shouldn't frisk my guys, you should fuck...

The RIAA has changed it's rules regarding digital sales and platinum eligibility, meaning that once Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail is released to Samsung Galaxy users, it will essentially have gone platinum.
Going forward, sales of albums in digital format will become eligible on the release date, while sales of albums in physical format will still become eligible for certification 30 days after the release date.

Not only do we believe it’s sensible and logical to align digital album rules with those we have maintained for digital singles since the program’s inception, we also consider today’s move in line with our larger efforts to modernize the G&P Program to reflect the new music...

Jay-Z and Beyoncé are reportedly expecting their second child.
That's right: Superstar supermom Beyoncé is expecting her second child with hubby Jay-Z, multiple sources exclusively confirm to E! News.

Update: Looks like some more information has come out disputing E!'s report.
Beyoncé addressed the rumors over the weekend with an Instagram post, according to the Daily Mail, writing, "I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me."

The track listing for The Great Gatsby soundtrack is in the replies. My excitement for a movie about one of my favorite books, is dead.
The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion. It’s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. The imagination Baz brought to ‘Moulin Rouge!’ made it a masterpiece, and ‘Romeo + Juliet’s’ score wasn’t just in the background; the music became a character. This film’s vision and direction has all the makings of an epic experience,” JAY Z said in a previous statement.
