Jay Z Cano

And the winner is Hov………again

Jay-Z has always said he isn’t a “businessman”, he’s a BUSINESS man. He is proven that, by turning the skill of rapping, into a half a billion dollar enterprise.

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Jay-Z has partnered with CAA (Creative Artists Agency) one of the most powerful agency in the world, so don’t expect another Master P situation. Roc Nation Sports will be its own separate company, with Jay-Z himself planning to be a certified agent.

Robinson Cano who left Super Agent Scott Boras, will be initially be represented by CAA Sports baseball group, but is officially a Roc Nation Sports client.  This was well thought and planned by Jaz-Z and Roc Nation.  Not something they went into lightly.

Jay-Z would have to give up ownership of the Nets to represent NBA players, but that is something he is open to. It is all about expanding your brand and Jay-Z has done a brilliant job of that, so no reason to believe he won’t be successful in this endeavor as well.

    Yes he is willing to give up all 0.6% of the nets ownership, wow that’s a lot to have to sacrifice, but i wonder if he is going to miss being the Real owner(prokorov)’s mascot/cheerleader.

      Not really sure what he has to offer on the contract negotation side. I really wonder why an anthlete would want him as his agent.

    Master P was an agent too.
