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.
