These days all the top artists you can think of are also entrepreneurs, building multi faceted empires that rake in millions in revenue independent of their primary talent.
Jay Z and Diddy easily come to mind when you mention such artists, and Lil Wayne himself is no slouch either. It seems however, that the Young Money rapper is himself looking to broaden his horizons, with reports indicating he’s planning on founding a sports management company.
And like everything Lil Wayne has done in his career to date, the multiple Grammy award winning artist is aiming high with this new enterprise, targeting FIFA world player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo as his inaugural client.
According to TMZ, “Wayne’s company would be working with Polaris Sports- which is affiliated with the CAA agency and GestiFute, through which Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes operates”
The deal is for the company to handle all management affairs in the US, including branding, marketing, and endorsement deals.
