Jay-Z: Sports Agent


Jay-Z can now add sports agent to his long list of accomplishments because the rapper has now become one.

Earlier this year, the rapper announced that he would be getting his feet wet by becoming a sports for his newly created agency Roc Nation Sports, part of his already famous and flourishing entertainment business, Roc Nation.

With the help of Roc Nation president, Juan Perez and acclaim celebritiy agency, Creative Artists Agency, Jay-Z  now represents basketball player Skylar Diggins, New York Giants’ wide receiver Victor Cruz, and  New York Yankee’s second baseman Robinson Cano.

The biggest issue that has arisen from this is the fact that in order to represent an athlete during negotiations, you need to be certified by the sports leagues’ unions. Jay-Z and his Roc Nation team have already started the first steps in getting that done and once National Basketball Players Association  certifies the rapper and Perez, they’ll be all set to start the bargaining.

But even though the NBPA has already granted them this, the NFL are still in the process of an investigation into whether or not they had violated any regulations when they recruited New York Jets draft pick, Geno Smith. At that time, Jay-Z had not been certified and was warned against doing anything recruiting related with that negotiation.

Kids’ Choice Awards 2013 Winners

2013 KCA

Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards give kids the chance to vote on what they think is the coolest of the cool in the pop culture world. The kids were in deed, out in force today at USC’s Galen Center for the 26th installment of the KCAs. The  underage voters (and parents) waited hours to catch a simple glimpse of their favorite starts who were set to attend such as Kristen Stewart, Miranda Cosgrove, Selena Gomez, and Katy Perry on the famous orange carpet.

The show was hosted by Transformer‘s Josh Duhamel whose pregnant wife, Fergie, was also in the crowd cheering on her husband which she let fan know of in a Twitter post earlier in the day. Winners of the evening included, The Hunger Games for Favorite Movie, One Direction as Favorite Music Group and Nickelodeon’s very own, recently ended show, Victorious as Favorite  Television Show.

But things were not safe for anyone because everyone who entered that arena became a target for the infamous slime to fall on (think the Hunger Games, just with a lot of gooey, neon green slime). Casualties of the evening included Neil Patrick Harris, Sandra Bullock, Kristen Stewart and Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull.

Check out the full list of winner right here.
