Lil Wayne Gets Into Sports Management, Signs Cristiano Ronaldo
Looks like Lil Wayne will have to start dropping verses with soccer references.
The New Orleans rapper, an avid basketball fan who has spent time getting kicked out of Oklahoma City Thunder playoff games and giving bizarre interviews at the NBA All-Star Game, is starting his own sports management company, reports TMZ.
His first client will be Cristiano Ronaldo, according to the gossip site.
The international soccer star and Weezy are good friends, so much so that Ronaldo tweeted out a photo with the Prime Minister of Japan, among other politicians, and they were all throwing up the Young Money/Cash Money sign, used by Wayne and those on his record label of the same name.
The report says Lil Wayne’s company will “handle Ronaldo’s sports management affairs in the Unites States” and will work with PolarisSports, which is affiliated with GestiFute and CAA, which represents newly re-signed Knicks All-Star Carmelo Anthony.
Welp, good for Weezy! No word yet on what the new firm will be called, but we’re pretty positive he’ll wiggle the phrase “Cash Money” in there some kind of way.
