*Jay-Z made it known a long time ago that he’s a business … man. And so he’s flexing his muscle with a new money move.
The Hip Hop mogul is about to sell his Brooklyn Nets ownership shares to move onto becoming a sports agent with his newly formed Roc Nation Sports division with Creative Artists Agency.
The pair signed New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano.
Hov’s goal is to become a full-fledged sports agent for the major leagues, including the NBA.
Though it may have appeared he had a bigger ownership than he did, Jay’s contributions to the team’s overhaul during its transition from New Jersey to Brooklyn have been outstandingly important for the image and impression.
The rapper owned .067 percent of the team.
“It would be disappointing [if he left],” Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo told ESPN. “He had an enormous amount to do with the rebranding of the team. I wasn’t close to it at all, but from what I’ve seen, it would be hard to overstate his importance in this all. [sic] I like his involvement in the team; he’s at the games, and maybe he’s around more than I realize behind the scenes. But he’s an excellent fan, one that wasn’t just around this year, but a lot in the past, too, which is very telling to me.”
