Jay-Z knows how to play
Some fans might have thought Jay-Z would struggle to find his groove as a sports agent, but his latest move might have even the most critical haters out there changing their tune. Taking a note from other famed agents, Jay opted to show college basketball star Skylar Diggins, a recent Notre Dame graduate, he wants her on his team.
BET reports Hov surprised the graduate with a brand new Mercedes-Benz to congratulate her on her accomplishment and getting picked in the draft. Diggins was selected third overall at the 2013 WNBA draft pick and she signed to Jay's Roc Nation Sports agency in April. Diggins signed with the Tulsa Shock and was just that - shocked - by her expensive gift from Jay.
"I got 99 problems, but a Benz ain't one," Diggins posted on her Instagram and Twitter accounts along with a photo of her new ride.
Jay seems to be showing the love to women athletes and agents, as Forbes reports the business savvy rapper recently hired Kimberly Ann Miale from Boston, Ma., as a contract advisor for Roc Nation Sports. Miale was brought on board to help represent any football players Jay's new company scores.
Do you think Jay is doing well as an agent? Are you surprised by the gift he got Diggins?
