To be a top-earning cricket administrator these days you have to act like a guy who is famous for his gangster rap.
And at the same time you also need to understand that even though your car is worth more than a Mumbai/Johannesburg/London peasant would earn in a lifetime, you need to understand that a foulmouthed hip-hop artist generally commands more respect from his audience.
One of Eminem's lines from his debut album elaborates on money and how it makes a man "go all funny". Well, it would appear that the cricket bosses of this world have gone koo-koo for the green stuff and, unlike politicians who operate on the southern tip of Africa, nobody is allowed to cap their vehicle allowance.
In that same song, Eminem goes on to say that "money is the root of all evil" and, in his defence, at that stage of his career the man responsible for so many "wiggers" was pretty much flat broke.
It can therefore be seen as somewhat ironic that the now billionaire hip-hop icon will be performing in Johannesburg on the same day the Proteas embark on their third and final Test against Australia at Newlands.
The real question those who happen to have an affinity for both rap music and cricket might be asking themselves, is whether the piles of cash the artist and the bigwigs are pocketing has become more important than the reason they first fell in love with what they do.
Surely somewhere in that diamond-encrusted cavity breathes a heart that would never have collaborated with Rihanna.
Or in cricket terms - those guys who are trying to construct the downfall of the greatest cricket nation never to have won an... wait for it... ICC event, must also have a conscience.
Here are some similarities between Eminem and the incoming Australia entourage who form part of the ICCs 'Big Three'.
Both reached their peak in the mid 2000s.
Both are willing to collaborate with just about anyone if the money is right.
The commercial value of their respective trades has without question become far more important than producing a form of entertainment that is capable of inspiring those who need it most.
As for the most significant difference between the artist also known as Marshall Mathers and the mafia who are doing everything in their power to tighten their grip on a game loved by more than three nations... Mathers can blame some of his poorer decisions in life on the drugs he allegedly used to take.
