Jay-Z Signs Geno Smith To Roc Nation Sports

New York Jets rookie Geno Smith planning on remaining "humble" despite signing to Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports.

The roster of talent at Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports continues to grow with the announcement of New York Jets quarterback and NFL rookie Geno Smith as the newest signee to the management firm. According to XXLMag.com, Smith will serve as the third athlete to be signed to the firm, which launched in early April.

“I think it’s just [Jay-Z's] agency,” said Smith while speaking on his signing “When you talk about being in New York from a standpoint of what they can do in the city, the connections that they have, I think it’s a good move. My mother and my family is comfortable with it, I’m comfortable with it. I’m just going to move on from there, not let it be a big deal, remain humble and keep focusing on football.”

Smith, a former West Virginia University athlete, was selected by the New York Jets during the second round of this year’s NFL draft.

He will join the likes of New York Yankees player Robinson Cano and WNBA star Skylar Diggins, who was recently gifted with a Mercedes Benz from the agency, as a Roc Nation Sports signee.

On top of their growing athletic roster, Roc Nation also represents a variety of talent including Rihanna, J. Cole, and Bridget Kelly.

    BACK TO YOU: 6TH TRACK FROM I AM NOT A HUMAN BEING 2 Back to you is about longing and sex addiction. He's in love with that girl who's so different from her (he drinks tea, she drinks wine). He want to settle down with her but is not ready to commit. He doesn't feel comfortable around the girl parents and friends. They judge him... But he likes her yet he thinks that's not enough... They use sex as to stop their relationship from growing because they don't know if they're ready Best song ever

    A clown like Geno Smith belongs at Roc Nation. No one credible would ever affiliate themselves with that entity. Jay-Z wants to exploit everyone who works for him. This is the guy who single-handedly almost managed to run Def Jam into the ground. Jay sucks at everything he tries his hand at except for making pop music. After signing with Roc Nation, one can be sure that Geno Smith's career will be as fruitful as Jay Electronica's.

      Geno should sign with YMCMB sports.

      never really like anything you say, but you might be right on this one...although from the outside looking in it sounds like Jay is making moves...but then you gotta stop and ask yourself, who has really flourished under Jay's guidance?

      Here is one thing people don't seem to understand about Jay-Z.... He respects entrepreneurism in men. He is someone who created his own enterprise by being his own boss. That's why he signed J. Cole but doesn't really respect him, J. Cole is someone who literally begged Jay-Z for a deal and wanted to be Jays Employee. Fine Cole got the proverbial willy wonka gold ticket instead of building a solid fan base in the streets like Jay did when jay couldn't get signed. Jay got tired of beans, memphis bleek, cause they were grown ass men dependent on him. He doesn't see the hustler in them, the entrepreneur in them. Their careers hitting a glass ceiling is part of the design, if they want the opportunity to achieve greater then let them go the independent route and then maybe Jay will respect them as his equal....a business man.

      @ OZ F: No he don't. he just finds ways to use people. This dude respected no one, from Jaz-O to Dame Dash, to the roster he had at Def Jam. His whole career was aligned with him using people to get ahead. Pay attention, he always aligns himself with whoever is hot at the time (BIG, Pac, DMX, Eminem, R. Kelly, 50, Lil Wayne, Drake, Kanye, Justin Timberlake...and there is many more out there). And Jay never got himself signed, Dame did the work.....Dame was the niggga that went to bat for him, and you saw how he did that dude. This dude has no loyalty, he's only in it for himself.
    • All You fake cats
      Non of whom you ghetto spokesmen have mentioned here have said bad or evil about Hov.. you sweet fuckers don't know Hov nor have been or done business with him to say shit... no matter your opinion Hov will stay winning and if your fathers can do it better let him speak for him self through his work... lame ass fuckers like you guys don't know hard work and staying away from hood fools and gangs pay so well... fuck you all because he will never rap that fake rap about killing and saying all his nicass got guns with out registration and pussy pussy pussy every where... even when he sang a song for girls (girls, girls, girls) he relate all of them to business and not fucking fucking and fucking... you fools are so lame and feel so ashamed that you fools can't get smart like Mr. Hov.. S. Carter.. Jigga The Jay-Z... he will be around till Rap id Gone. you fools will wait a long time to see him fade but i am sorry he will keep repping till you fools are no more.. God even Bow wow in ymcmb added Hov's photo on his mixtape cover. you sweet lame gangsta will never be like Hov even if you pay the devil to help you out as you fools thought he did. BITCHES!!!
