Derrius Guice is switching his allegiances from Top Dawg to Young Money—and no, we're not talking about his favorite rapper.
The LSU running back has dropped Top Dawg Entertainment as his management company in favor of Young Money APAA Sports, per Darren Heitner of Forbes. Top Dawg represents Kendrick Lamar, while Young Money was founded by Lil Wayne.
Guice is considered a likely NFL first-round pick and will be by far the top player ever signed by Young Money, which has mostly dabbled in lower-tier prospects. They also added Texas linebacker Malik Jefferson this year.
Wayne and Guice have a Louisiana connection. The former is from New Orleans, while the latter grew up in Baton Rouge before starring at LSU.
Still, it's a bit of a surprise for Guice to leave. When he became the first athlete to sign with Top Dawg, Guice spoke highly of the agency as being the "first guys" to come after him.
Who knows? Maybe Guice just liked Wayne's version of "DNA" a little bit better.
