Jay-Z’s sports-world domination is one step closer with the official signing of Kevin Durant to his Roc Nation Sports agency.

On his Instagram account, Durant posted a photo of Shawn Carter inking the pact, making the rapper his new rep. Since becoming an agent, Jay-Z has also signed the Yankees’ Robinson Cano, the Giants’ Victor Cruz and the Jets’ Geno Smith.

“Grateful for this opportunity with Roc Nation Sports. It’s go time,” Durant wrote.

Jay-Z, evidently, is a big fan of the free throw. He wrote of Durant: “He has a 90.5 percent free throw shooting rate, the youngest player in NBA history to join the 50-40-90, a giving individual and a legend in the making. What more can I say?”
