Jay-Z Launches Roc Nation Sports

Jay-Z’s empire continues to grow. It was announced today that Hov and his company Roc Nation have launched a sports management company called Roc Nation Sports, which is a joint venture with sports agency CAA Sports. They have already signed their first athlete, MLB All-Star Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees. Here is what Jay-Z had to say:

“Because of my love of sports, it was a natural progression to form a company where we can help top athletes in various sports the same way we have been helping artists in the music industry for years,”

Robinson Cano added:

“At this point in my career, I am ready to take a more active role in my endeavors both on and off the field. I am confident that the pairing of Roc Nation Sports and CAA Sports will be essential in helping me accomplish my short- and long-term goals. I am making this important decision now so I can keep my focus on helping the Yankees succeed in 2013, while minimizing any distractions for me and my teammates.”
