Another big get for Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports.
According to TMZ Sports, Hov's sports agency just signed Bayern Munich star defender Jerome Boateng, who played on the World Cup-winning Germany team. Signing the 26-year-old is significant because he's the first European athlete to sign with Roc Nation Sports and it opens the door for Jay Z's presence in the soccer world.
"It was a great day with Jay Z. We could ask him anything," Boateng told a German media outlet about signing with the rapper and business mogul, as reported by TMZ. "We mostly talked about music and football. Jay Z knows about football and has watched numerous games."
This comes after Hov helped Dez Bryant ink a five-year, $70 million extension with the Dallas Cowboys just two weeks ago. The contract included $45 million in guaranteed money, the highest amount of guaranteed dollars for a wide receiver in NFL history.
Imagine what Jay will help Kevin Durant, another Roc Nation Sports client, rake in next summer when he becomes a free agent.
