Lil Wayne Signs Cristiano Ronaldo, Is Now a Sports Agent

By Marissa G. Muller

When Lil Wayne stopped by ESPN’s First Take a few weeks ago to opine on the futures of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, it appears that he wasn’t just dipping his toes into sports. He’s making a career out of it.

The rapper is following in Jay Z’s footsteps and starting his own sports agency, according to TMZ. His first client? Real Madrid player and hair trendsetter Cristiano Ronaldo.

As far as first clients go, the pairing makes sense, considering the two have been friends for awhile.

Wayne will be working with PolarisSports, a CAA and GestiFute affiliate, while managing Ronaldo’s career in the United States. He’ll be handling everything from Ronaldo’s modeling gigs to branding, marketing and endorsement deals.

Ronaldo is clearly pleased with his new sports agent. Yesterday the soccer player posted a picture on Twitter of Japan’s prime minister and politicians giving the Young Money Cash Money Billionaire sign.

Lil Wayne must be a pro at time management because on top of overseeing Ronaldo’s affairs, the rapper has also been wrapping up his upcoming album Tha Carter V and is preparing to go on tour with Drake on Aug. 8.
