Lil Wayne’s Young Money Sports Agent Makes NFL History

Posted on in Fresh Gems

Nashville, TN – Lil Wayne’s Young Money APAA sports agency represents Quinnen Williams, who was selected by the New York Jets at No. 3 in the 2019 NFL Draft. His agent, Nicole Lynn, made history by becoming the first African American woman to represent a Top 5 NFL Draft pick.

Williams, a star defensive lineman at Alabama, was excited to be able to sign with Lynn and Young Money.

“I signed with, like, basically Drake and Nicki Minaj,” he told ESPN. “That’s crazy.”

Last month, Lynn spoke about her representation Williams in an interview with BET

“The agents that I recruited against, again, they’ve been in the business for 40 years,” she said. “I mean, it was almost a joke to them. But Williams] didn’t care. Every time you talk to him, he’s like, ‘My agent’s a beast.’”

Lynn further explained how landing a top prospect like Williams as a client was an improbable outcome.

“There are 900 certified agents; only one percent are women,” she noted. “Just one percent, and there are only three us that are Black women out 900, which is crazy.”

Young Money APAA represents over 80 athletes, including Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice and New England Patriots defensive backs Devin and Jason McCourty.
