Will Jay-Z actually represent clients of his newly created sports agency, Roc Nation Sports, in contract negotiations? That’s a possibility in the future as Jay-Z is now licensed to work as an agent for NBA and MLB players.
Ron Berkowitz, a spokesman for Roc Nation Sports, confirmed to ESPN.com that, as of this week, Jay-Z is now licensed to work as an NBA agent. Juan Perez, president of Roc Nation Sports, also is now certified with the National Basketball Players Association. And MLB Players Association spokesman Greg Bouris told ESPN.com on Thursday that Jay-Z is also now licensed for MLB. The news was earlier reported by the Sports Business Journal.
