Birdman & Cash Money jumping into the Sports Agency biz


Looks as though Jay Z is still an inspiration amongst his peers. Everyone knows Lil Wayne is a huge sports fan. Now it appears that his mentor, “Birdman” and his Cash Money Records have plans to open a sports agency.

Cash Money Records may be getting into the sports game. The famed record label–home to Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj, to name a few–has filed a legal request to trademark the name Visionaire Sports Group, according to government records obtained by XXL. The trademark request filed October 25 covers the following: “Sports agency services, namely, management, representation and promotion of professional athletes; promoting sports competitions and/or events of others; promoting the goods and services of others by arranging for sponsors to affiliate their goods and services with athletes; talent agencies; arranging personal appearances by persons working in the field of sport … .” The trademark is listed as owned by Cash Money Records, Inc., under the care of law firm Pryor Cashman LLP.

Please don’t attempt to make Sports Agencies like record labels and clothing lines in the 90’s. Everybody can’t jump on board because it’s trendy. Find your own angle. Details are still sketchy so I’ll keep my eye on this one for you.
