Jay Z not busy enough so he's reportedly starting a VC fund.
According to a recent report by Axios, Jay Z is planning on launching a new venture capital fund. Fortunately, this gives us a decent comparison point for the obvious question: Could this fancy-sounding venture capital fund actually have legs?
Jay Z is further extending his portfolio of endeavors.

The serial entrepreneur will partner with his Roc Nation business partner Jay Brown.

Jay Z is no stranger to the tech landscape.

The rapper turned business juggernaut has been investing in tech star ups since 2012-including an investment in Uber vehicle service's Series B, tech savvy luggage maker Away, and a private-jet startup, Jet Smarter. He's also invested in JetSmarter and Uber, according to Crunchbase, which collects VC investment data.
