Having already made one of the best hip-hop albums of the year, along with finally patching things up with Kanye, Jay-Z is, if reports are to be believed, looking to make it (another) year to remember by buying Harvey Weinstein's stake in his own company.

Weinstein, who was outed from the company that he founded after shocking reports emerged that detailed a deep well of sexual misconduct spanning decades, might be in for yet more public ignominy after TMZ reported that Jay-Z is looking to purchase his 23 percent stake in The Weinstein Company.

The rap mogul, who has a reported net worth of $810 million (£610 million), already had a professional relationship with TWC and Harvey after the pair began producing a documentary, The Kalief Browder Story, as well as a future miniseries about Trayvon Martin, the teenager who was killed by neighbourhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in 2012.

According to TMZ's source, Jay would be looking to acquire Harvey's stake as part of a syndicate that includes a billionaire and a famous movie producer, although at the time of writing there's been no comment from either Jay-Z's nor Weinstein's camps.

The sharks are circling, Harvey.
