Before Roc Nation Sports,
There Was Master P

“Learn from the mistakes of others” is how the saying goes. Hopefully, Jay-Z paid attention to the demise of Master P’s No Limit Sports

Before Roc Nation Sports,<br />
There Was Master P

Jay-Z and Master P

although they only began managing athletes in 2006, they currently represent more than 800 athletes including stars like Ryan Howard and Carmelo Anthony. Meanwhile, Roc Nation manages many music artists including Rihanna, J. Cole, Santigold and many others. Since signing Cano, Roc Nation Sports has added Notre Dame star and WNBA rookie, Skylar Diggans, New York Giants receiver, Victor Cruz and most controversially, Geno Smith.

Everyone expects Jay-Z to help attract signees, CAA to handle their contracts and Roc Nation to market them and as long as everyone stays in their lane, Roc Nation Sports should be ‘bout it, ‘bout it.
