(AllHipHop News) Since the launch of Roc Nation Sports, Jay Z has been doing more than making the Yankee hat more famous. Earlier today (July 28th), New York Yankees pitcher, CC Sabathia had his first radio interview and discussed signing to Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports, Derek Jeter retiring and more.

On January 17th, 2014, CC Sabthia became the first pitcher signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports and, at the time, the second Yankee player joining his former teammate Robinson Cano. According to Sabathia, even Jay Z’s current On The Run tour does not deter him from assuming his responsibilities as Roc Nation Sports founder:

He’s on tour doing his thing, but he always gives us support and whatever we need. So, it’s great being a part of that family. I’m glad I signed with Roc Nation.

On July 18th, CC Sabathia was deemed out for the rest of the season due to him undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery today which will take 6-8 weeks of recovery. Sabathia spoke on being physically unable to perform during Derek Jeter’s final season:

Me and Jeter have been close ever since I got here. Honestly, in the recruiting process of me coming here he was big into that. So, it’s tough not being there and just not hanging out. This will be the last time we ever get to hangout like that. I’m saying, during the season you’re with guys every day, you know, 6-8 months.
