The 12 Clients of Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports


Remember when Jay-Z founded Roc Nation Sports because he decided that, in addition to being a filthy rich hip hop mogul, multi-platinum recording artist, and husband of Beyoncé, he also wanted to be a sports agent?

At the time it didn’t make much sense to people. Some wondered a why a hip hop mogul and recording artist who is already filthy rich (and married to Beyoncé) would even want to get into that line of work. Others—mostly other agents—snickered at the idea of a rapper negotiating contract extensions and wondered what he could offer that every other agent could not.

But that was then. Now that Roc Nation Sports has clients the whole thing makes sense. Jay-Z may not negotiate deals like Scott Boras, but he is cooler than Scott Boras. And there are a lot of athletes who don’t just want to be rich. They want to be cool. They want to be icons…like Jay-Z.

So who are these would-be icons? Well right now there are 12 of them. Take a look…
