Roc Nation Looking To Cash In As Live Nation Deal Comes To An End

Jay-Z alongside his longtime associate and the top executive at Roc Nation, Desiree Perez are looking forward to scoring big for their entertainment company as the deal between Roc Nation and Live Nation Entertainment comes to close. Back in 2008 Jay-Z signed a massive 150 million dollar deal with Live Nation which was meant to last for ten years. Next year will see the “360 deal” coming to an end which means either side of the two parties could sell their shares in Roc Nation or if still interested buy the company altogether. Some of the top artists at Roc Nation are Rihanna, Shakira, Meek Mill, Jay-Z among others.

Sources reveal that Live Nation is still interested in continuing the touring deal with Jay-Z but not in for the recorded music part. An insider source was quoted saying the deal between Live Nation and 350 could soon end. With such a looming end, the music recording deals and artists’ right that Live Nation had will also be no more. The move could be so because of Live Nation’s business model of not buying recorded music. On the other hand, the company regards its touring relationship with Jay lucrative and hopes to extend it for many years.  To read more about this, click on
