Jay-Z Is a Sports Agent Now (Sort Of)

Sports break! Jay-Z's Roc Nation — with the help of CAA — has started a sports agency, and they've already signed their first client: Robinson Cano, second baseman for the New York Yankees. ESPN reports that Jay plans to be an actual agent, "first in baseball and eventually in basketball and football," though the basketball involvement would mean he'd have to sell his share in the Brooklyn Nets. Related: Turns out having Jay-Z as your agent does not mean you have to have a Jay-Z walk-on song. (Or maybe those songs were just fake-outs, and he'll change it now.) Meanwhile, Daily Intel has some actual baseball analysis, if that should interest you.
