Jay-Z stays winning. The enterprising rapper has officially become a licensed NBA agent. Ron Berkowitz, a rep for Roc Nation, confirmed to ESPN that Hov can now represent b-ballers in the NBA.

There’s no official word on when Jay-Z can actually start signing players, but it certainly elevated his position at his sports agency Roc Nation Sports. The firm reportedly is looking to sign Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant, who left his agent, Rob Pelinka, a couple of weeks ago.

So far, Roc Nation Sports roster includes New York Yankees baseballer Robinson Cano, New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith and WNBA player Skylar Diggins.

Earlier this week, Jay-Z celebrated the 10-year anniversary of his 40/40 sports club franchise in New York.

Jay-Z’s new job hasn’t slowed him down on the music side. The rap mogul is set to release his new album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,‘ on Independence Day (July 4).
