One of the biggest names in music representation is getting into the business of representing athletes. Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), which represents the likes of Kendrick Lamar, SZA, ScHoolboy Q and Jay Rock, announced Friday it is opening up a sports division and its first client will be former LSU running back Derrius Guice. "They were the first guys who came to me, just like LSU was the first school to offer me a scholarship," Guice said. "I didn't forget that." Guice, who said he is a big fan of Kendrick Lamar, also said that he liked the idea of being the firm's first and only client. "The focus is on me and my game plan, not on a ton of other guys," Guice said. TDE, which was founded by Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith in 2004, currently represents eight artists and recently partnered with Disney and Marvel on "Black Panther," which hits theaters next month.
