Lil Wayne Signs Soccer Player Cristiano Ronaldo
Just in case you forgot about Lil Wayne’s entrepreneurial spirit, the multi-platinum rap superstar has just made a big announcement. According to TMZ, the YMCMB rapper is launching his own sports management company and his first client will be none other than Portugal’s star soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.
Wayne has already proven himself to be a successful music executive, by being instrumental in the success of artists such as Nicki Minaj and Drake, and now he’s taking his business to a new level with this new endeavor. Now, it almost seems as if he’s following Jay-Z’s lead with this move into sports management.
Weezy’s company is teaming up with PolarisSports, an already existing sports agency affiliated with CAA and GestiFute. Ronaldo’s current agent, Jorge Mendes, operates out of the agency. But now that he’s teamed up with his friend Weezy, Ronaldo hopes to up his branding, marketing, modeling and endorsements. Ronaldo is already throwing up the YMCMB sign.
