Robinson Cano is joining Jay-Z's Army

Jay-Z is arguably the world's most admired rapper. He's the entrepreneur behind Rocawear and the 40/40 Club. He owns a basketball team -- well, he owns part of a basketball team. Reportedly, his share of the Brooklyn Nets is a mere one-fifteenth of a percent, but you wouldn't know it by his courtside seats. He's also married to Beyonce and friends with Kanye West.

Hova is now branching out once again, this time into talent management, and his first client is Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano. With an Instagrammed picture on Tuesday, the pair announced their agreement and the creation of Roc Nation Sports. The company is an arm of global powerhouse agency CAA, which reps Matt Cain and Ryan Zimmerman as well as Adrian Peterson, Carmelo Anthony and Cristiano Ronaldo, among many others.
