“I’m not a businessman, I’m a business man”. True words spoken by Shawn Corey Carter aka Jay-Z. With business interests stretching from Rocawear, Roc Nation, and his 40/40 Clubs to executive production on NBA 2K13, a highly successful memoir, and his ownership stake and influence on the Brooklyn Nets Jay-Z has transcended the music world and is a globally recognizable brand.
Today marks the day that Jay-Z takes his brand to another a level. New York Yankess second baseman Robinson Cano has left power agent Scott Boras in order to sign with CAA Sports and hire Jay as his representative.
The news which was broken just a couple of hours ago by Darren Rovell as you can imagine as had the entertainment and sports worlds in a frenzy. ESPN’s Buster Olney is reporting that Hov is extremely interested in becoming a certified sports agent, first in baseball and, eventually, in football and basketball.
