Lil' Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and Mike Evans?

In a way, yes.

The former Texas A&M wide receiver became the first high-profile athlete to sign with Cash Money Sports, a new venture from the famed Cash Money Records.

Home to some of the biggest names in hip-hop, Cash Money is seemingly following in the footsteps of other record labels who've expanded into the sports field -- a list which includes Master P's No Limit Sports (now defunct) and Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports.
