Why is Jay-Z in Cuba Anyway?

by Greg Pollowitz

Jay-Z has recently partnered with the mega-agency CAA to start a sports-agency business called “Roc Nation Sports.” 

Roc Nation has already signed Roberto Cano of the Yankees and Mr. Z will sell his stake in the Brooklyn Nets to allow his company to represent NBA players.

Now this is just speculation on my part, but maybe Mr. Z is in Cuba — thanks to his friendly ties with the Obama administration — developing a relationship for when Cuban baseball players are allowed to freely play in the MLB?
