Everyone wants a piece of the NFL and the NBA - two of the most-lucrative sporting businesses in the world.

Yahoo Sports insider Chris Haynes revealed platinum recording artist Jeezy is getting into the business.

According to a report from Haynes, Jeezy opened a sports agency called "Sports 99" that will represent NBA and NFL players.

Here's the news from Haynes.

Jeezy follows in the footsteps of fellow rapper Jay-Z who opened Roc Nation Sports in 2013.

Roc Nation Sports is one of the most successful sports agencies in the country and reps a few of the biggest athletes in each sport. The agency reps New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley and Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving.

Jeezy, an Atlanta legend, wants to follow the success of his predecessors.
