Being a client of Jay-Z's Roc Nation sports agency evidently has its perks.
Upon graduating from Notre Dame on Sunday, former Irish star Skylar Diggins was given a new Mercedes-Benz courtesy of the rap mogul's latest venture.
Diggins, who earned AP All-America honors for the Irish this past season, was recently taken with the third overall pick by the WNBA's Tulsa Shock. After receiving the gift, Diggins took to her Twitter account.

Jay-Z, a former minority owner of the Brooklyn Nets, relinquished himself of his NBA ownership in April so he could start Roc Nation Sports group.
The company counts Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz among its early clients.
