Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne is getting his grown man on these days after reportedly launching his own sports management company.
Details of Weezy F. Baby’s newest business venture have surfaced online this week.
Our sources tell us … Weezy has been wanting to get into the sports management game for a while and has had his sights set on the Team Portugal stud … not just because he’s a huge sports star, but because they’re friends. We’re told Weezy’s company will be working with PolarisSports — which is affiliated with the CAA agency and GestiFute — through which Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes operates. (TMZ)
The music superstar has decided to tag close pal and soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as a client.
Our sources tell us Wayne’s company will handle Ronaldo’s sports management affairs in the United States — everything from branding to marketing and endorsement deals. Even modeling. Seems Ronaldo is pumped about the situation — he just posted a photo with the Prime Minister of Japan along with other Japanese politicians … and they were all throwing up the YMCMB sign. (TMZ)
Buzz about Cash Money possibly launching its own sports company emerged last December.
One potential justification for why any public use of “Visionaire Sports Group” is tough to find is that Cash Money Records may have altered its plans since applying for the trademark in October. According to football industry watchdog website Inside the League, Young Money Records is said to be conducting necessary due diligence to enter the athlete representation arena as early as the beginning of 2014.

Information on what sports-related company Young Money invested in had also turned up.
According to sources of Inside the League, Young Money has chosen to invest in an existing Mississippi-based sports agency named Play 2 Win Sports, Inc., which appears to lack any notable NFL clients currently signed to Standard Representation Agreements. (Forbes)
