    The rapper is now licensed to represent NBA and MLB players, E! News confirmed Thursday.

    In April, Jay-Z annouced his plans to create Roc Nation Sports, a full-service agency which strives to represent the best athletes in all major sports.

    However, in order to negotiate playing contracts, the entrepreneur had to first get certified by the unions of the individual leagues.

    The agency first signed New York Yankees' second baseman Robinson Cano, with plans to represent the baseball star when it's time to negotiate his new contract.

    Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durrant is the first NBA player Jay-Z is reportedly expected to sign.
