(AllHipHop News) Global revenue from electronic sports is expected to cross $1 billion in 2019. Some video gamers are already making millions of dollars from competitions and endorsements.
With that knowledge, it comes as no surprise that Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports International is moving into the e-sports space by signing Mosaad Al-Dossary (aka @Msdossary7). Roc Nation Sports International also represents professional footballers Jérôme Boateng, Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne, Eric Bailly, Axel Witsel, and Samuel Chukwueze.
