Jay-Z might be new to the sports agent business, but he already knows how to spoil his clients.

The hip-hop mogul’s new agency, Roc Nation, bought new client Skylar Diggins a brand new Mercedes as a graduation present. Diggins, the former Notre Dame women’s basketball star and new Roc Nation client, graduated from the university this weekend.

Both Roc Nation and Diggins posted pictures of the white Mercedes, complete with red bow, to their Instagram accounts.

Diggins signed with Roc Nation in late April, becoming the third high-profile client of Jay-Z’s fledgling group. The agency has also recently nabbed New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz as clients.

The Tulsa Shock recently made Diggins the third overall pick in the 2013 WNBA Draft.

The WNBA will be dissolved within two years and Jay-Z will return this car that I AM CERTAIN is leased.

It makes me sad that Skylar was dumb enough to get sucked in by the JA-Z BS train.  She is just B-U-T-Ful.  As is usually the case, beautiful and dumb are bedfellows.

her contract probably wont cover the cost of the car.  maybe z hole is looking for a little sugar as an agents cut of her $100.000 contract is probably 30 percent (30,000)  maybe his bro owns a chop shop for a deal?

The sterotype is:  thugs making a lot of money rappin' about killin cops, beating down their hoes and being "the man". The reality is 75% of black babies are born out of wedlock thus they grow up without a father or family unit, grow up listening to rappers who influence them and end up committing a crime and get incarcerated.  It is a terrible perpetual cycle.  Facts are facts.

 @pj38173 Do you know that 75% of white men commit sexual assaults from incest, rapes, and sexual batteries.  It is quite obvious what race you are from, but FACTS are FACTS.  What is about your souls that make you and your kind the worst maggots that have ever walked this earth?

 Not sure what stereotype you're trying to turn this into - I'm pretty sure ANY kid graduating college would love a Mercedes as a gift from their agent.  Tons of agencies buy their clients gifts, especially if it's going to make the news and give them more recognition.

 

In fact, Suke, I can't think of one steroetype your stupid comment is referring to.  You know more white people own Mercedes than black, right?  And male's own more Mercedes than females, right?  So... what the hell are you talking about?  The only stereotype I see is you calling someone "Jigro" (Jay Z?  Skyler?).

 

Please, enlighten us as to what you see that we don't.

The entire continent of Africa is a cesspool.  The only good thing to come out of that continent was South Africa and as soon as the whites were overthrown, that country is now the rape capital of the world.
