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.

MMG & Roc Nation Collabo: Meek Mill Signs To Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Management

MMG rapper Meek Mill has signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation for management. The news was announced in a recent interview with LifeandTimes.Com. The Philly native, who released his Dream Chasers 2 mixtape earlier in the week is now apart of the same management company as his MMG labelmate Wale, pop singer Rihanna and R&B singer Melanie Fiona. Below are a couple of excerpts from Meek’s interview with LifeandTimes.

L+T: So you’re signed to Roc Nation management…
MM
: Yeah, that’s the new deal I put together. Me coming up in this rap game, I was always an underground artist coming up by myself and making all of the moves by myself. And my manager – he’s just like me, we’ve been coming up in the streets by ourselves. So we just decided to partner up with Roc Nation and take things to another level.

L+T: Now that you’re aligned with two of the most important organizations in hip-hop, how do you feel that’s going to define your career?
MM
: I think it’s going to take me to the next level. I’ve got Warner Bros. behind me, Maybach Music Group, and Roc Nation; some of the most powerful people in the game. That’s like 80 percent of the game right there. You know, Ca$h Money, they like family. So it’s like you’ve got everyone on your team at one time, and it feels good to have all that behind you at once. It’s like a force that can’t be stopped.

Meek’s Dream Chasers 2 mixtape received over 3 million downloads in two days. He is in the studio working on his debut album, entitled Dreams & Nightmares due August 28th via MMG/WMG. He is also an opening act on Drake’s ‘Club Paradise’ tour.
