JAY Z WINS AGAIN ! WILL HE SIGN CHICAGO ARTIST?
NOT CHICAGO NEWS. BUT NEED TO KNOW MUSIC NEWS! Hova announced today that Roc Nation has partnered with the Universal Music Group to become a standalone label. Rihanna and Jay-Z's new albums will be released via Roc Nation/UMG. Jay-Z is very familiar with the Universal Music Group. Roc-a-fella signed a joint venture with Def Jam, part of the Universal Music Group, in 1996. Also, the rapper/mogul was famously appointed president of the Def Jam label in 2004, signing the Roots and Rihanna during his stint. He left Def Jam at the very beginning of 2008, and founded Roc Nation the same year. Financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.
