There's just no slowing down with Roc Nation Sports. Since it's founding in April, Jay-Z's sports management company has signed the likes of Robinson Cano, Victor Cruz, Skylar Diggins, and (most recently) Geno Smith. The winning continues with Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
Jackson ended his relationship with agent Drew Rosenhaus, and he's looking to become Roc Nation Sports' next client. Apparently one of the main reasons Jackson is aiming to join Jay-Z's agency is because he had a lifelong desire to start a music career:
That culture for hip-hop was huge, and I had a passion for it at an early age. I have a slim chance of making it in the music industry. It’s a risk, [and there are] no guarantees. But I’m a firm believer in having one life, and living that one life up.
NFLPA rules states that Jackson must wait five days before signing with RNS, but it's looking like congratulations will soon be in order.
