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 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.  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 this won’t be successful as well.
