From the streets, to the rap game, to the... sports marketing game? That was Jay-Z's basic path to becoming a sports agent in 2013. Even though hip-hop artist Jay-Z has never been any major professional athlete's agent before, the  hip-hop legend is considered by many to be a marketing wiz. Perhaps that is the reason why MLB star Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees left his world-class agent, Scott Boras, to lay his future contract negotiations in the hands of Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter. Jay-Z has marketed everything from clothing lines to music companies to professional sports teams as a public figure, but never a professional athlete as an agent. However, rapper Jay-Z does seem to have a lot of potential in the "sports agent game" with big connections in baseball star Alex Rodriguez and basketball living-legend Lebron 'King' James. If Jay-Z can help get Robinson Cano land a huge contract next off-season wth a team, than who knows who will be added next to Jay-Z's new business.

James Pizzitola's curator insight, April 5, 2013 6:42 PM

Even though there is actually no formal requirements for becoming a sports agent, it is highly recommended and virtually needed to have at least a bachelor's degree. This article also says that because a lot of work for agents involve legal and financial matters, many agents do indeed have some type of degree in law, finance, accounting, and sports marketing. Aspiring lawyers are also recommended to go to law school after they finish college.

This article as well as other articles that most agents have played sports before and throughout their chilhood, and that is how they get attached to their sport and want to have a job around that sport for the rest of their lives. Another interesting fact from this article is that there are starting to become more female agents now and the number is increasing every year.

The world of the sports agent is already incredibly large, it is growing, and it is a competitive field to try to get a job in because of the want for the job's growing numbers in upcomers every year.

While reading this article I have learned what I need and is required to be a sports agent. This article has taught me the basics of what a sports agent does and how they work as part of a large angecies. I have also learned that the average wage for agents is $88,620. Along  with some interesting facts that say most sports agents are found in California and New York, followed by Illinois, Tennessee, and Florida.
