Jay-Z Confirms, Explains Sony & Atlantic Deals

Billboard’s Mariel Concepcion recently spoke to Hov and got some clarification on the deals he just closed with Atlantic and Sony.

“Sony is Roc Nation. That’s where Roc Nation’s going through,” Jay-Z told Billboard.com on Friday (June 29).

As for the deal he recently signed with Atlantic, he clarifies that it is a one-off situation for his upcoming album, “Blueprint 3,” slated for a September 11th release.

“That’s pretty much just for this specific album. Roc Nation — we’re experts in marketing and making records. But we do distribution deals,” he says. “On this one, we’re working directly with the Atlantic staff, which is Julie [Greenwald], Lyor [Cohen], Kevin [Liles] and Kyse [Mike Kyser]. For the rest of the Roc Nation artists, we did a distribution deal with Sony.

Sony must have brought a pretty sweet deal to the table for Jay to pass up a reunion with Lyor, Kev Liles and Mike Kyser. I mean, just look at all of the bromance oozing out of that pic up there.

    Cory Gunz is only interesting when he’s machine-gunning. If not, he’s just putting a bunch of words together and none of them are interesting.

    Lesson to you, Cory: Your delivery is your asset.

    I think that’s a 360 deal, $150 mill. And it includes Roc Nation, so they’re getting their cut. I just think this gets Sony the publishing for BP3.

    I played the demo on my PS3 and I didn’t really have too much of a problem with it but then again I only played it breifly.

    You might just be uncomfortable with the stick positioning [ll] on the PS3 contoller. I have the game for my 36O and it’s great.

    When I fight I block and move at the same time and make sure you keep an eye on your stamina. It goes down as you block hits and throw punches so find your balance when moving and blocking.

    When it goes down about 25% [or less depending if I repect my opponent] I back away if I need to and move to the side not backwards. That way he won’t catch you on the ropes to do further damage to your stamina which weakens your punches, guard, and slows response.

    Practice your blocking speed too. I know you’re going to block your hear alot but don’t neglect your body [ll].

    Muhamad Ali fu*ks me up on GOAT level because he switches up his targets so quickly. work on your ablility to block as many random shots as possible to optimize your oportunities for big counter shot windows.

    Also, try to stay away from haymakers. . . you’ll get yourself styled on.

  31. PHENOMENON Says:

    Use jabs more often. They’re effective over time and opens the door for major opportunities down the line because they work on closing up the eyes thus slowing their response. They save your energy/stamina too.

    Doubble up on your jabs. Make them quick though and be prepared to black and move at the same time.

    This works great on noobs. Their instict is to react and when they do you’ll probably already be out of the way. That’s when you hit ‘em with the hook or what ever punch appropiate.

    @ odemic, i’m just saying that it’s not about being a has-been

    look at dude who runs twitter. before this he invented blogger. the dudes with good ideas don’t need a boss. they hire themselves. they soak up game, make some change, and then on to the next idea.

    dame did a reality show like he was a real self-made entrepreneur. like he is brimming with ideas. like he’s a leader. actually, it’s pretty obvious now that dude’s brilliance was nothing more than having a friendship with jay. where are his ideas now?

    the idea that dame’s been “blackballed” is ludicrous — look at cats like the junk bond maven mike millken. dude had it all taken away in the 80s and then rebuilt himself from scratch. that’s how true leaders and visionaries do it. anyone who walks around sulking like they’ve been blakcballed are probably out of ideas and of no value to any organization. and then you have to ask – what value did they ever have?

    Dame was the biggest asshole in the history of the music business…when Jay stop fucking with him he lost the clout with the labels cuz he had nothing to offer them,….If Dame took Kanye with him he would still be straight with the Def Jam-Sony etc….he got a second chance with Dame Dash Music Group or what ever the fuck name of the label he got from Def Jam failed cuz his biggest act was Grafh and that B.Coming album Sigel did before his bid

H looking like a british schoolboy – cats that inspire him and energize him and maybe give him a quickie. it wouldn’t have worked for yeezy and dame to be butt buddies.

  55. ODEMIC Says:

    @Martin Margiela Mane when jay and dame split, i was mad at dame for the bs they said he was conspiring to do, etc. however, when he tried future endeavours, i was sorta rooting for him, just for the fact: “the more successful black business people there are, the better”. Pro Keds and all.

    but i’m starting to really question his business acumen now. maybe he was just the big mouth manager who rode some coattails.

    yeah i get what your saying about the comparisons. but in hindsight, they both started off with just one “major artiste” on their label, BIG and JAY respectively, and built empires around them. i, at one point, lookwed at dame as the next diddy.

    yea but i’ve never viewed diddy of being capable of that level of gangsta. he might’ve run with some thugs at his label, but to say “lemme off this fat muthafucka before he grows financial sense and tells me off”……. thats never sat with me.

    atleast he kept it moving.

    simply put: drake is the biggest thing in hip-hop/r&b/hip-pop/pop music in years. his name will ring bells for at least 2 or 3 years. if ur praying for his downfall or the failure of his album, good luck – his buzz is already bigger than any other artist and he only been signed for a few days. hi haturz.

    Drake media/ publicity machine is funny

    But the guy got some good songs.and strong ear for beats…

    .. see I fucks with Drake ( got to love the Drake (c) Seinfeld ) but at the same time I do think his buzz is way over the top, in no way do i think he is the best thing out, but it is what it is and it’s easy to understand because he makes music bitches love and the guys can fuck with too, half the reason why I like so far gone now is because it’s one of the few things I can listen to with my girl, when I first heard it I thought it was good, but it took awhile to grow on me, but my girl moves the shit and I realized dudes got crazy talent and when he decides to rap he can really go in, how can I hate on that ? …

    … it’s already here to an extent, people hate him without any reason other than that people love him so much, like I said I was in a heated argument and all I was saying is dude is talented and I enjoy some of his music, I never said he was near the best out but he does him and he does it well and even that was too much for some people to handle, its just a question of how long he can maintain the interest of the ones who have made his buzz so big if he can turn this into more than a short stay ….

    Real talk. But the labels aren’t pushing NY artists like that. They realize that as big of a market New York is, the rest of the country has been brainwashed into thinking that Bama/Trap/Swag rap is the only thing poppin. That’s why I think B3, BISD & a new Ruff Ryders project are gonna be crucial to putting NYC back where it needs to be…on top.

    BTW…I’ll bet money that Young Money album is gonna be a craptacular disaster, with a few standout verses from Wayne, Drake & Nikki Minaj.

    Maino’s album really surprised me. it’s not a great album by any means, but it’s a solid effort from a cat who’s taken full advantage of the buzz he got from the mixtapes & DVD circuit. To be a marginally talented MC, Maino’s done pretty good for himself.

    Wayne still has the belt right now…ppl forget this nigga worked around the clock for like 3 years, I wouldnt write him off.

    The Young Money album will have some hits and will sell well.

    The real question is, will Wayne finally learn to let an artist exist and produce outside of the Lil Wayne limelight and fame. i think if he does that- like Ye has managed to do with Cudi- sky’s the limit for Drake.

    Vice: I’d like to start by talking about Omar – he’s a character who lives and dies by his code. Do you think he’s sympathetic?


    Donnie Andrews: Yeah. He had his moments. You know, I might do something or beat somebody, then go home and think about it. Or I might take somebody’s money, but then I’d always leave them with something. They made Omar exactly the way I was. David [Simon] wrote “The West Side Story” [the initial Baltimore Sun article about Donnie] after my conviction in ’86 and they basically had everything down-pat. The gay part they took from a guy called Billy Outlaw, he was a gay stick-up guy.
