Big Ballin! Lil Wayne Signs His First Major Athlete

Florida State's Reggie Northrup puts trust in Weezy.

Published March 30, 2016

Still sorting through legal issues with Cash Money, Lil Wayne is pushing forward with another line of business.

According to TMZ Sports, the rapper and sports fanatic has signed his very first athlete to his Young Money Sports agency. Who is it? Florida State University linebacker and NFL prospect Reggie Northrup.

What's interesting about this is Birdman has his own sports agency in Cash Money Sports, to which Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is signed to, signaling that Weezy will be up against his boss in the sports world, too.

Oh, wow. Let the games begin.

Add in Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports agency and you have three rap moguls vying for the cream of the crop when it comes to the best athletes around.

Should be interesting. But with Birdman and Weezy... this is not just business. It's personal.
