Having already established his reign over music, fashion, nightclubs, real estate, beauty products, sports arenas and beautiful wives, Jay-Z inched closer to King of Everything today with the announcement of Roc Nation Sports, a sports agency partnered with famed agency CAA. In a statement posted on Roc Nation's website, Robinson Cano, the New York Yankees second baseman, was announced as the agency's first client.

“Because of my love of sports, it was a natural progression to form a company where we can help top athletes in various sports the same way we have been helping artists in the music industry for years,” said Carter, who's been the most vocal, and famous, proponent of the Brooklyn Nets.

“At this point in my career, I am ready to take a more active role in my endeavors both on and off the field,” Cano said in a statement. “I am making this important decision now so I can keep my focus on helping the Yankees succeed in 2013, while minimizing any distractions for me and my teammates.”

As Forbes notes, Major League Baseball shouldn't have an issue with Jigga entering the baseball game. But should he become a basketball agent, he may face a conflict of interest given his partial ownership of the Brooklyn Nets.
