Jay-Z: Warner or Epic? Carter Music Group?

Audi dinner two weeks ago

Yesterday, Billboard reported Jay was close to a deal at Beyonce’s label, Epic Records.

Today, the NY Daily News claims Hov is headed to a Lyor/Liles/Kyser reunion at WMG.

Jay-Z may be a free agent for now, but he’s in talks to cut a deal with WMG/Atlantic that could make him one of the richest and most powerful men in music.

A well-placed industry source tells us that Jay – who recently left Def Jam as a recording artist (he served as its president from 2004-2007) – has been taking top-secret meetings with his old pals and former managers Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles. Topics of the hush-hush conversations have included giving Jay his own record label at WMG, tentatively to be called the Carter Music Group.

“Jay knows Lyor and Kevin from back when they all worked together at Def Jam, and he obviously wants to work something out with his friends,” says our insider. “He wants to get the dream team back together. There have been a few whiffs of a reunion in the past, but only now – and very privately – is something finally starting to happen.”

Our source adds, “This is big in hip hop. These are three of the most powerful men in music, who might be working together, and there’s no question the success they’ll have as a team will be huge.”

WMG Vice President Cohen and Executive Vice President Liles also attempted to convince Jay to bring his Roc Nation label – which is part of the reported $150 million deal he cut with Live Nation – to WMG. Jay, however, has chosen to release his much-anticipated 15th album, “The Blueprint 3,” with Live Nation in the fall.

“Jay’s deal with Live Nation is massive,” says another music-biz insider. “But if he were to cut a deal with WMG/Atlantic, he’d make even more headlines. Jay-Z, Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles are all brand names. They’re the industry’s heavy hitters, and the combination would bring them a lot of attention. They would be unstoppable. Jay himself is the most successful rapper-turned-businessman out there.”

Jay-Z (real name Shawn Carter) is a force to be reckoned with on his own. He reportedly bought himself out of his contractual obligations with Def Jam/Universal for a cool $5 million.

A rep at WMG would not comment; Jay-Z’s team didn’t return calls.

    Man, it seems like only Jay is making major moves to cement himself in the future of the music industry. Drake’s got a lot of the labels by the nuts but that’s only to get a deal. Jay is playing a major chess game right now. I thought 50 would be the one to forward march with major moves but he seems to be on the verge of not having a career. None of his singles have picked up at all. People thought he was at a low point with Curtis this album seems like he might be on the edge of irrelevancy.

    i sense a chess playing Hov moment

    cam is at asylum/warner

    jim is at sony

    either way, hov is shelving somebody

    LOL

    smh @ this article saying lyor and/or kevin used to “manage” jay-z. that factual error alone makes the ny daily news piece lose a bit of credibility.

  65. spirit equality Says:

    mackavelli, ease back on taking up 13 year old Pac beefs against rappers. lol.

    seriously though, ice cube dropped one of his best albums since death certificate with laugh now, cry later near (or above?) the age of 40, so that age limit talk is just BS. either you have it or you don’t. hov sounded pretty sharp on american gangster. if he could find a way to do the mature content on KC with the flair (and dope production) he displayed on AG, he’d REALLY be onto something

  66. spirit equality Says:

    the other x-factors not mentioned: hip-hop (formerly of roc-a-fella) works at sony. on the flip side, jay has a close relationship with t.i. and an atlantic deal would put him in the same building with tip (lyor could also use the star power since his biggest star is going away for a year). wmg is also publicly traded, so jay could get some equity out of the deal (stock options) at a premium rate. he could probably also finagle a 50/50 joint venture over there, i’d imagine.
