Jay Z had a big year but even he couldn’t reign supreme in his fantasy football league. Complex shares that longtime friend and Translation Marketing owner Steve Stoute took home the top prize in Jigga’s fantasy football league.

Hov’s league apparently also included celebs like NBA star Chris Paul, and the rapper asked ESPN experts like Matthew Berry to help him with his draft. “Congrats to @stevestoute for winning THIS in the GUTS fantasy football league aka Jay-Z’s lg,” Matthew Berry tweeted, along with a photo of a championship ring recently.

He may not have won fantasy football, but Jay takes real-life sports very seriously. In 2013, he launched Roc Nation Sports and signed baseball star Robinson Cano and Kevin Durant.
