Top Dawg Entertainment is world renown for being the home of music from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Schoolboy Q, Isaiah Rashad and more, but TDE does more than just make music. They dabble in clothing, throw massive toy drives for the needy during the holidays and even oversee the soundtracks for Marvel blockbusters, and now we can apparently add sports to the mix because TDE has announced their arrival in the world of sports with a new sports agency.

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, TDE has officially launched their new sports division with the signing of highly touted NFL prospect, former LSU running back Derrius Guice. According to Rovell’s report, veteran sports agent Fadde Mikhail, who formerly founded his own agency Creative Sports International, will run TDE’s sports division. Mikhail has represented players like Darren Sproles, C.J. Spiller, Antonio Cromartie and Taylor Mays in the past.

“They were the first guys who came to me, just like LSU was the first school to offer me a scholarship,” Guice told ESPN on signing with TDE. “I didn’t forget that.” As of now, Guice, who noted he is a fan of Kendrick Lamar, is TDE’s only client. ESPN notes the TDE sports division will be ran out of the same Los Angeles headquarters as their record label.
