The Carter Empire continues to expand, to say the least, yesterday (April 2nd), the second wealthiest hip hop mega mogul Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter launched and announced his latest venture ” Roc Nation Sports”, which will be a full-service sports management company. The new sports rep agency will be partnered with established sports rep establishment, CAA Sports.
According to reports, Mr Carter wasted no time in making his first signing a big one by snagging New York Yankees second baseman, Robinson Cano. In a press release he spoke on his motivation behind starting this new venture: “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,”
Cano whom which is a four-time MLB All-star, World Series champion and two-time Golden Glove Award winner left his high-profile agent Scott Boras to sign on to Roc Nation Sports and appears to be very optimistic about his decision to do so….“I am confident that the pairing of Roc Nation Sports and CAA Sports will be essential in helping me accomplish my short- and long-term goals. I am making this important decision now so I can keep my focus on helping the Yankees succeed in 2013, while minimizing any distractions for me and my teammates,” says Cano
