Jay-Z/Live Nation Deal = Done

Jay

Billboard reports that Jay and Live Nation finalized their $150 million agreement on Wednesday.

The company yesterday (May 1) filed a Form-8K with the SEC which states that the artist is getting 750,000 Live Nation shares, plus an option on an additional 500,000 with the exercise price of $13.73. The shares go to Marcy Media, the company affiliated with Jay-Z (born Shawn Carter), in connection with the formation of Roc Nation LLC, a joint entertainment venture between Live Nation and Jay-Z.

I look forward to seeing a 47 year-old Jay playing Caesars in Vegas.

    everyone knows that all his movies have some crazy surprise twist. we all expect it now and watch the movie trying to figure out the angle. no one knew what to expect in the sixth sense.

    __________________________________________________________

    You think he is sabatoging Obama?… I look at it from this perspective.. Rev. Wright is a Minister, He preaches, and thats what he does. He is not bound by political ties and he doesnt have to watch what he says. He is answering to a Higher power and if media blitz happens to bring Obama down, then so be it. I mean Dude was speaking the truth. I dont think he intentionally wants to see obama fail, but in His mind this is the greatest platform to speak on his “liberation theology, and speak the truth on these whitefolks.

    I just don’t feel that Rev. Wright has to shut up because he feels like his message and people’s soul is more important than some political acheivement.

    If Obama loses, you gotta chalk it up to the white people weren’t going to vote for a black man anyway.
