Jay-Z Launches Sports Agency. Signs N.Y. Yankess All-Star Robinson Cano [Pic]

 

Jay-Z's business empire continues to expand. The Brooklyn, New York born and raised rapper has gone from street hustler to being one of the most respected businessmen in America with a net worth of $475 million according to Forbes.

 

His investments in the Brooklyn Nets, Roc-A-Wear, Roc Nation and Carol's Daughter have paid off handsomely. Now Hov has now partnered with Creative Artists Agency to launch Roc Nation Sportsa full-service sports management company, reports USA Today.

"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," said Jay in a statement.



RNS has already landed it's first big client. They convinced New York Yankees All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano to fire long time sports agent Scott Boras to sign with their company.

"At this point in my career, I am ready to take a more active role in my endeavors both on and off the field," said Cano. "I am confident that the pairing of Roc Nation Sports & CAA Sports will be essential in helping me accomplish my short- & long-term goals."

 

The first order of business for Roc Nation Sports will be to ink Cano to a new contract. His current one expires after this season.

"50 said the next record he wrote after "God Gave me style" was "Curtis 187", wasn't that on the Curtis album? I'm confused."
