By Spotify Studios
Sports agent Nicole Lynn joins Jemele to discuss becoming the first black woman to ever represent a top-5 pick in the 2019 NFL draft and also just the third woman ever in the draft’s 83-year history to rep a first rounder. She shares the story of how she landed New York Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, the third overall pick, as a client. She also discusses how she manages the different challenges she faces as a black female sports agent, and what it’s like working for Lil Wayne’s Young Money Sports.
