Jay-Z is looking at a new problem.

While the rapper/mogul famously divested his ownership stake in NBA team the Brooklyn Nets to throw his hat in the ring of representing athletes with the formation of Roc Nation Sports, an expensive watch given to his superstar client Robinson Cano has generated an investigation by the Major League Baseball Players Association for violating agent regulations (via CBS Sports).

The gift in question is a limited-edition Shawn Carter Classic Fusion watch by Swedish watchmaker Hublot and co-designed by Jay Z that the five-time MLB All-Star received for his 31st birthday at a party in Belgium on Oct. 22. Cano showed off the extravagant timepiece that retails for $33,900 on his Instagram account.
