First it was Jay-Z, and now it's Cash Money Records. Birdman could potentially be the new rapper turned agent according to reports;
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.
Having a rough go of it trying to picture Birdman sitting down with the likes of Larry Bird, James Dolan, and Jeanie Buss. I don't even think Birdman takes his sunglasses off, ever. That would make for an interesting business meeting though. I'd love to be a fly on the wall for those negotiations. Talkin' about hunnet million dollas and champagne baths.
