Jay-Z’s sports agency resume just keeps getting bigger and bigger after Kevin Durant became the first NBA star to sign with Jay-Z as his agent. Kevin Durant posted this picture earlier today on Instagram to show that the move was not a rumor:
Jay-Z now has clients in all 3 of the major league sports in the United States – including Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees , Geno Smith of the New York Jets and now Durant. Furthermore, Jay-Z also signed NASCAR superstar Dale Earnhardt Jr.
I don’t know about you guys, but this could be the foundation of a new type of agent that we’ve yet seen – big name stars working big name stars. All these massive superstars signing with Jay-Z (excluding Geno Smith as he is a Rookie) are already huge in their respective sports and Jay-Z is hoping to land them big amounts of off-the-court / off-the-turf /off-the-field / off-the-track endorsements. Get ’em Hova!
