Jay-Z and Roc Nation Sports Host Welcome Reception for Skylar Diggins

Jay-Z and Skylar Diggins

Roc Nation Sports rolled out the red carpet for its new client Skylar Diggins. Jay-Z was on hand to welcome the former Notre Dame women’s basketball star to NYC at a private reception at the 40/40 Club on Thursday.

Earlier this month, Roc Nation also bought Skylar a brand new Mercedes-Benz as a gift for graduating from Notre Dame.

“Got surprised with a new mercedes! Thanks so much to Jay and @rocnation, and @dancyautogroup!” tweeted the 22-year-old, who was drafted third overall by the Tulsa Shock in the WNBA draft.

In addition to Skylar, Jay-Z’s agency has signed New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith as clients.

While the mood was celebratory, the hip-hop mogul and his company are currently under scrutiny. The NFL Players Association has launched an investigation into just how involved Jay-Z was in recruiting Smith to Roc Nation Sports.

Under a 2012 NFLPA rule, only NFLPA-certified agents may be involved in the recruitment of clients (Smith’s Roc Nation agent, Kim Miale, is certified, but Jay is not). If Jay-Z had any role in recruiting Smith, Roc Nation would be in violation of NFLPA recruiting rules.
