Lil Wayne’s Sports Agency Purchases Competing Management Group
Lil Wayne‘s sports agency, Young Money APAA Sports, has reportedly acquired PlayersRep Sports Management, a competing agency that primarily represents football players.
Weezy started Young Money Sports nearly four years ago and merged with startup company APAA Sports Group in 2016, resulting in Young Money APAA Sports.
Now, the agency is looking to expand with the purchase of PlayersRep Sports Management, an agency which includes clients such as New England Patriots’ Devin McCourty and Duron Harmon, Philadelphia Eagles’ Lane Johnson, Cleveland Browns’ Jason McCourty, Denver Broncos’ Todd Davis and Oakland Raiders’ Seth Roberts, according to Forbes.
Athletes who were already being represented by Wayne‘s agency include former University of Arizona basketball playerKadeem Allen, Sacramento Kings point guard Frank Mason, and Jacksonville Jaguars rookie wide receiver Dede Westbrook.
Forbes reports that the recent acquisition will allow Young Money APAA Sports to expand its offices to Cleveland, Chicago and North Carolina, in addition to their existing space in Dallas.
