Despite having issues with his current label, Def Jam. Multi-platinum rapper Jeezy joined forces with Jay-Z and is now signed to Roc Nation management. The news was announced via Jay-Z’s site Life + Times. Details about the deal are still unclear as the time of the press, but expect a lot of business ventures and endorsements in the coming months.
Jeezy isn’t the only rapper that’s having issues with his label, Def Jam. Harlem’s own Juelz Santana is also going through it with the prominent Hip-Hop label. He sent out a few tweets venting about his problems with the label. He still doesn’t have a release date for his long-awaited forthcoming LP, Born 2 Lose, Built 2 Win. Back in September, Birdman confirmed via MTV’s RapFix that he was in the process of signing a well-known established rapper from New York who had already released major albums to his Rich Gang/YMCMB imprint. I can attest that the rapper is Juelz Santana. The deal should be finalized by the end of 2013 and an announcement should be made in the coming weeks.
