Jay-Z is expanding his empire into the sports world. On Tuesday Jay announced the launch of a sports management company called Roc Nation Sports, which will operate in conjunction with Creative Arts Agency Sports. In a press release Jay says he was eager to break into the athletics world because of his long-time love of sports. He says Roc Nation Sports will help athletes in the same way that Roc Nation has been “helping artists in the music industry for years.”
The agency is getting off on the right foot by signing four-time Major League Baseball All-Star Robinson Cano, who plays for the New York Yankees. Cano says he’s “confident” that Roc Nation Sports will be an integral part in helping him achieve his professional goals.
