TEAMING UP WITH LIL WAYNE

Rapper Starting Sports Management Biz

EXCLUSIVE

0724-lil-wayne-cristiano-ronaldo-tmz-getty-01Cristiano Ronaldo is about to become a YOUNG MONEY CASH MONEY BILLIONAIRE ... because sources tell TMZ Sports Lil Wayne is starting his own sports management company and Ronaldo will be client #1. 

Our sources tell us ... Weezy has been wanting to get into the sports management game for a while and has had his sights set on the Team Portugal stud ... not just because he's a huge sports star, but because they're friends. 

We're told Weezy's company will be working with PolarisSports -- which is affiliated with the CAA agency and GestiFute -- through which Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes operates. 

Our sources tell us Wayne's company will handle Ronaldo's sports management affairs in the United States -- everything from branding to marketing and endorsement deals. Even modeling.

Seems Ronaldo is pumped about the situation -- he just posted a photo with the Prime Minister of Japan along with other Japanese politicians ... and they were all throwing up the YMCMB sign.

Congrats!!

Yeah, because if there's one guy you want representing you in a business meeting it's an illiterate, gold-toothed sizzurp drinker.

Was Flavor Flav not available?

There is no way I would trust Lil Wayne as a manager. He can't even manage his "artist" on his label now he wants to dabble in sports? Seriously?!! He is no Jay-Z. He can't think for himself and be original. It seems like when one rapper does something and is successful every other rapper thinks they can do the same when in fact they can't. Lil Wayne needs to manage his sperm and stop having all these kids with all these different women. It's a wonder how he can be a productive father to all of them. He should have followed Jay-Z in that respect. He actually married the mother of his child BEFORE getting her pregnant and doesn't have children all over the place. He has the one with his one wife. Christian is an idiot to trust this fool.

How did this happen? Did Ronaldo take a dump one morning,catch a glimpse of his handy-work and say to himself "Lil Wayne should be in my life"?

The "throwing up signs" thing is just so freaking stupid. Rappers and other uneducated negros are terrible business men. They can entertain people for a little way but then the novelty wears thin and they go bankrupt. Its history and a proven fact. If you got an issue with it then tell Little Wayne to start a company that actually makes a product that people can use.

All of you are the stupid illiterate ones... he will hire a team of lawyers to run the biz... dah... They will read the fine print to make sure their clients get a fair shake. The team of lawyers he hires will field the endorsement deals... etc.. None of you commenting know how this will be structured so you should shut up... Jay Z is working from a proven successful business model right now.... You probubly don't know that because you obviously don't like rap..
