The time All Star, three time Gold Glover, NL MVP and World Champion... Jimmy Rollins has filled his trophy case over his baseball career, but this week he got a big honor of a different kind. A platinum record. As part of his "Jimmy Rollins Entertainment Group Venture" J-Roll invested in the publishing rights of a song that featured Justin Bieber and Sean Kingston. The song, "Eenie Meenie" became a hit, selling over a million units and earning Rollins a platinum record in the process.
Rollins told students at Temple's Fox School Of Business that his venture into the music business is part of a plan for his post baseball career.
"I'm done with baseball in 5, 10 years, what am I then? A former baseball player," Rollins said. "It's being a Gemini. I do love the spotlight, when it's something I'm supposed to be involved with . . . Hopefully, you grow and grow and become a power player. Have an artist. Have more than one artist. Get that one person who can put you on the map. I'll feel like that artist is a part of me."â†µ
Jimmy owns publishing rights of a Snoop Dogg song and signed a young artist named Chanel Nicole.â†µ
