Lil Wayne is making a big business move. The Young Money mogul is reportedly starting his own sports management agency and has signed up soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo as his first client.
According to TMZ, Weezy, who is a huge sports fanatic, has been wanting to get into sports management and is friends with the Team Portugal player.
Wayne has partnered with Polaris Sports, which is affiliated with CAA and GestiFute, the company where Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes works.
Wayne’s company will handle Ronaldo’s sports management affairs in the U.S. including marketing, endorsement deals, and even modeling.
Earlier today, Ronaldo tweeted a photo of himself with the Prime Minister of Japan holding up the Young Money sign.
“My homie Christiano Ronaldo got the President of Japan throwing up Young money! He too real 4dat! Young Muulah baby!” tweeted Wayne.
He won’t be the first rap mogul to venture into the world of sports. In 2013, Jay Z teamed up with CAA to launch Roc Nation Sports, which is home to Kevin Durant, CC Sabathia, Skylar Diggins, and Victor Cruz.
