Jay Z continually pushes to expand his business reach. Not satisfied with only being a rapper/entertainer he bought a minority share with the then New Jersey Nets. After helping the team move to Brooklyn, and being an integral part of the franchise's re-branding, he was ready to move onto his next venture, sports management.
Jay Z (no hyphen) has been doing various interviews after dropping his Magna Carta...Holy Grail LP, and the subject of his Roc Nation Sports Agency keeps coming up. After relinquishing his minority ownership of the Brooklyn Nets to become a sports agent who can represent NBA players, the Roc Nation guru says in an interview with Elliott Wilson that his “time was up,” with the Nets.
- Rumors are true and Jay-Z will sell his portion of the Nets to become a full sports agent.
