Jay-Z Facing Several Stiff Requirements Before Becoming NFLPA Certified

In order to become a certified agent, Jay-Z must first pass the NFLPA admission test and have his postgrad degree requirement waived.

According to a recent report from NBC Sports, Jay-Z’s latest business venture may be slightly more difficult than many may have initially perceived. Thanks to the rapper’s newly-launched sports management company, Roc Nation Sports, he’s expressed interest in receiving NFLPA (National Football League Players Association) certification.

Receiving certification from the NFLPA will allow Jay-Z to actively recruit NFL players, but in order to become a certified agent he must first successfully pass the NFLPA’s admission test.

On top of passing the admission test, the Hip Hop mogul would also have to work directly with the NFLPA to somehow have the postgraduate degree requirement waived. And with the possibility of that particular requirement being waived there then arises issues of favoritism and special treatment for the rapper.

As of now, it is unclear if any of these requirements will affect Jay-Z’s decision to become a certified agent.

Among those Jay-Z is currently working with at Roc Nation Sports is New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz.

    WHY CAN'T HE JUST RUN THE AGENCY BUT HAVE AGENTS WORKING UNDER HIM? I KNOW HE WANTS TO PROVE HE CAN DO EVERYTHING, BUT THIS ONE JUST ISN'T REALISTIC.

    • CCLASS

      fool thats what he is doing thats why needs the license, jayz doesnt actually do nything , he just owns the business n hires agents..

  • ETK

    Jay z is facing a stiff cock in ass and mouth, courtesy of me.

  • bill6996

    its nice to see somebody using their money and ambition towards something possitive like basketball and football,yes this will make him more money,aslong as he lowers them ticket prices like Kid Rock said he should then i dont see a problem,if their was a problem its because in my oppinon (pay check to pay check)i feel as a fan offended when an rap artist get upset that people download their muscic,well sorry but being most rappers came from nothing and hard times you'd think they'd understand that sorry i cant go buy your cd with you rapping about your stacks and bentleys for 20$ when i need food and gas tommorow and checks not coming in for another week,sorry,these rappers would be more succesfull if they did free concerts everyonce and a while,people say sex sells but really,good entertainment for free sells in the long run,imagine Jay or anyone up their in names doing a free concert tour,millions would praise them and have a little more respect for them aswell as draw new fans who see the possitivity,ITS ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC not the money

  • Get an Education

    Why would he let these minor requirements stop him? He's capable of learning the material and passing the so called post admission test. Black Community please lets stay in School.

  • fizzy

    Actually-you don't need a "post graduate degree" to become an agent. Not sure where they got that from. Also, it was never stated that Jay himself would be the agent. His company "Roc Nation" would provide agent services... This is terrible reporting.

    Drake would ask Jay-z if he could play Blue's party. Jay-z will slap Drake back to Degrassi

    • ^

      Funny cause that describes Birdman, not Jay Z. And Drake would kill to work with Jay-Z again.

    • dentaldamboy

      Why would Drake want to be associated with a pathologicl liar who has betrayed all of the people he came up with like Jay-Z?

  • dentaldamboy

    Any player who hires Jay as an agent is a disgrace. Jay is a Yankees and Giants fan. He will try to get all of his players to take less to play for those teams.

    • Nigga is u crazy?

      He will obviously not try to get his clients to take less to play for the Yankees. Considering there is no fucking salary cap in baseball a player can sign for any amount of money. Football is a different thing.

    • Anonymous

      And they should listen to an internet troll with no life like you?

  • dentaldamboy

    Super agent Scott Boras is more intelligent and richer than Jay-Z. Boras had drake perform at his kid's birthday last year for $650k.
