Jay-Z’s music catalogue has a new home. Yesterday, Hov signed himself and Roc Nation to a global publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. The signing comes four months after Jon Platt‘s move to the company. As part of the pact, the publishers will have rights to his future and past recordings.

Says Hov:
“The real meaning of success is being in the position to work with an individual you consider a friend. Jon Platt is such a person. He’s a man of extraordinary character as well as a remarkably talented executive with an ear for music and an eye for talent. It’s great to watch him grow to be one the best in the business.”

Says Jon:
“I first partnered with Jay in 1996, and it’s been thrilling to work with my friend over the past 16 years as he’s grown into one of the world’s best songwriters and become a global icon. At the same time, Roc Nation is one of the most dynamic and influential music companies around. It is home to an extraordinary collection of hit-makers, who are writing and producing many of today’s most popular songs and collaborating with the world’s most successful artists. I couldn’t be happier to continue my relationships with Jay and Roc Nation and build on our partnerships at Warner/Chappell.”

Get your money n****. All you other n***** hating on Jay-Z are HATERS. There is a reason why he is singing 9 figure deals and ya'll salty at home reading this saying stupid b*******. That's the same reason why I'm illin working off my first potential 6 figure deal and ya'll still wondering what 6 figures really looks like

"I don't get dropped, I drop the label"
This is truly something to watch. This man is the epitome of longevity. Sure, you can debate the "best lyricist" tag, but his total body of work is unparalleled. It's going on almost two decades that this man has been doing his thing & his name still commands attention. This type of run is generally reserved for artist in R&B, rock, jazz etc, but in hip hop, this is unprecedented. To watch the maturation from 96' till now is quite remarkable. From labels passing on him, to setting his own parameters in deals as he sees fit. From doing shows at clubs, to selling out venues- repeatedly. Multiple 40/40 clubs, restaurants, liquor deals, shoe deals, clothing, minority ownwer of a NBA franchise, his own signature car paint- the man had his own color with Jeep if I'm not mistaken. From Marcy to having the POTUS drinking champaign in HIS establishment. I started as a fan of Jay Z the artist, & although I still am, I am much more a fan of Shawn Carter the businessman. In regards to his music, detractors say what you will, but no other hip hop artist has ever - and in my opinion - never will sustain the longevity that Jay Z has. Much continued success sir in all your endeavors.
