Jay-Z has managed to make the most out of his rapping career, and his resume now reads like a true business man. With Roc Nation doing well considering that the company manages one of today’s biggest stars in music (Rihanna), it was a pretty smart move for Jigga to set his sights on another objective. So he decided to drop his ownership in the Brooklyn Nets and launched Roc Nation Sports, a management company that focuses on managing the top names in sports. And he’s done well so far considering he just signed superstar New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and he even signed Skylar Diggins, the young woman posed to become one of the biggest stars the WNBA has ever seen. However, there were some whispers suggesting Jay-Z’s ambitions to become a certified agent would be short-lived, especially since he doesn’t have a college degree. But according to the New York Post, those reports are inaccurate and Beyonce’s husband is just weeks away from certification. The publication reports:
Music mogul Jay-Z is closing in on being a certified agent by the players association, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
Jay-Z, who formed Roc Nation Sports and lured Robinson Cano away from Scott Boras early last month, is expected to be certified by the union within weeks.
In the meantime, Jay-Z is moving quickly to diversify his roster of athletes, as he is in talks to sign a Hockey player and has already landed his first baseball star weeks ago.
