Jay-Z is now a sports agent

Jay-Z is now a sports agent.

Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s entertainment agency, has partnered with Creative Artists Agency to form Roc Nation Sports. The company’s first client? The New York Yankees’ Robinson Cano.

Jay-Z is reportedly planning to become a certified agent himself, first in baseball and eventually basketball and football. The only drawback? In order to represent clients in basketball, he’ll have to give up his share of the Brooklyn Nets.

Jay-Z (aka Shawn Carter) called the move a “natural progression”:

“Because of my love of sports, it was a natural progression to form a company where we can help top athletes in various sports the same way we have been helping artists in the music industry for years.”

How long before UK’s stars start signing with HOVA?

    I hope for his clients sake that he is only lending his name to an agency…he only thinks he is a gangsta….corporate attorneys and contract lawyers are at a whole other level of shark…

    Really? Jay-Z? KSR has really dropped the ball today. I’ve had people telling me all day that multiple other news sources are reporting that Poythress has decided to enter the draft and that Calipari has offered Hawkins a scholarship. I keep checking KSR for confirmation, but nothing.

    Yeah, I have no respect for a man that calls himself “Hova”, as in “Jehova”. I only respect one Jehova – the real one.

    Master P tried his hand at being an agent a few years back. Didn’t work out so well for him, but then again, what has in the last few years. Hard to top poetic lyrics like, “Make ’em say Uhhhh! Nah,nah,nah,nah.”
