Jay-Z is officially a licensed NBA and MLB sports agent. President of Roc Nation Sports Juan Perez has also been certified to represent NBA players.
The rapper and all-around businessman announced his plans to launch Roc Nation Sports earlier this year. However, to become a certified agent, he had to forgo his partial ownership in the Brooklyn Nets. Although, it is reported that Jay-Z still owns shares with the basketball team.
Roc Nation Sports has already signed New York Yankees’ Robinson Cano. Jay-Z is expected to sign NBA player Kevin Durrant next.
What do you think of Jay-Z’s switch to sports agent?
