Roc Nation Sports Is In The Building!
Jay-Z has hit another home run in business, as he strikes A management deal with New York Giants & Yankee athletes. More Inside! If you didn't know, he already partially owns the Brooklyn Nets but now he started his own company in partnership with Creative Arts Agency (CAA) called Roc Nation Sports Management Company. Under this agency, Jay- Z has already signed Robinson Cano from the New York Yankees...
and also Victor Cruz from the New York Giants...
Jay-Z has conquered the music world and by the looks of it, it seeems like he’s taking over the sports world too!
In a press release, Jay-Z said,
“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.”
Now athletes don't have to try and be a rapper to work with Hov. Thanks to Roc Nation Sports, football, basketball and baseball players can stick to doing what they do best! Lord knows we have enough so/so rappers already!
Jay-Z isn’t the first rapper turned sports agent. Back in 1999, Master P signed New Orleans Saints running back Ricky Williams, but after signing with Master P, Ricky was given what some sports and legal experts believe to be the worst contract for a player of his level at the time.
Something tells me Jay-Z is not going to face the same fate as Master P. Maybe it’s all the government money he’s getting…*shrugs*.
