Jay-Z wants to be baseball agent

Jay-Z wants to be an agent for Major League Baseball players

Jay-Z is applying to become an agent for Major League Baseball players.

The Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) said the rapper's application to be certified was received on Thursday.

Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports and CAA Sports announced last week they were partnering in the agency business, and New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was the first client. CAA's Brodie Van Wagenen replaced Scott Boras as Cano's listed agent.

Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, is in the process of selling his minority share of the Brooklyn Nets.

Had he kept his share with the NBA club he might have faced potential problems in becoming certified by the MLBPA.

Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
