Lil Wayne hasn't done much to conceal his obsession with professional sports. The New Orleans emcee has rapped over the SportsCenter instrumental, dedicated a song to Kobe Bryant, appeared as a guest debater on ESPN's First Take and often blogs about his favorite teams. So it's only logical that he took the next step and started his own sports management agency a la Jay Z. It's being reported that Weezy will be heading a company through PolarisSports, an affiliate of CAA, and his first client will be Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who made an estimated $52 million last year. Weezy has a lot of work to do before his roster would rival RocNation Sports—who manage the Kevin Durant, Robinson Cano and Victor Cruz, among others—but he's certainly off to some type of start. Below, check out a photo that Ronaldo cryptically tweeted of himself among a sea of YMCMB supporters in Japan.
