JAY-Z SIGNS 150 MILLION DEAL WITH LIVE NATION

April 3, 2008 1 comment

According to the Wall Street Journal, Jay-Z is about to close a landmark deal with Live Nation Inc worth 150 million.

‘In what may be the richest in a string of recent deals with superstar musicians, Live Nation Inc. is close to a $150 million, 10-year deal with Jay-Z that would give the concert promoter a financial position in virtually every aspect of the rapper and entrepreneur’s career, according to people familiar with the matter.

The contract also calls for Live Nation to make advance payments to Jay-Z — whose real name is Shawn Carter — of $10 million for each of three albums, along with $25 million toward concert performances, and other advance payments and promises to cover certain costs totaling $50 million. The company is also to pay $20 million for music publishing and licensing rights. Live Nation would underwrite other of Mr. Carter’s business ventures in areas such as clothing, out of a fund of $25 million; in the past, Mr. Carter has been involved in clothing and nightclub businesses. In all, the agreement appears to be broader than the one the company reached last year with Madonna, which kicked off Live Nation’s recent deal-making spree. Irish rock band U2 also recently made a deal with similar, though not identical, components, and many major music stars have been rumored to be examining such arrangement. Continue Reading

VIDEO: JAY-Z FT PHARRELL – ‘I KNOW’

February 27, 2008 2 comments

The track is taken from Jay’s album ‘American Gangster’ and a long with the ill advised Lil Wayne assisted track ‘Hello Brooklyn’ (Wayne’s hook -DREADFULL), is one of weakest tracks on the album, so I don’t know why its been released as a single.

Jay doesn’t appear in the video but Lenny Kravitz’s daughter, Zoe Kravitz, managed to bag herself a part.

Nepotism at its finest folks! Its not what you know these days it’s who you know, who your parents are, and who you sleep with…..

VIDEO: JAY-Z ON WESTWOOD TV

Tim Westwood’s behaviour is just soooooooo over the top, sooooooooo licky licky. The man’s hilarious!   

Westwood is Hip Hop’s very own Peter Pan who refuses to grow old gracefully.  

Admittedly I have always liked his radio shows though. This goes back to when he used to host his own show on Capital Radio way back in the mid-late 80s.

‘IM A GANGSTA NIGGA’

February 22, 2008 1 comment

On my way home from work yesterday evening I sat on a packed but silent train reading the March issue of XXL Magazine (Nas is on the front cover).

I sat there engrossed in the magazine when the silence was broken by a mobile phone’s loud ringtone…. a ringtone that left me cringing in my seat and burying my head further in to the pages of the magazine.

All that could be heard was Jay-Z’s voice BOOMING from the phone rapping the line “I’M A GANGSTA NIGGA, I’M A GANGSTA NIGGA” continuously!!!!

I refused to look at the city slickers (male and female) that were sitting around me, kept my head down and just prayed for the ground to open up and swallow me whole and for Jay’s voice to stop.

Eventually the idiot owner of the phone, who was standing by the doors, answered the call and his voice was even louder than the ringtone’s volume. I swear I just wanted to kick him in his mouth and smash his phone to pieces.

Then it got worse because his phone seemed to keep losing its signal and the caller kept calling back. So the whole carriage heard “I’M A GANGSTA NIGGA, I’M A GANGSTA NIGGA” at least six more times.

I breathed heavy a sigh of relief when I finally reached my stop. But before getting off the train I looked the idiot dead in his face.

The man was as you would expect, black and clearly over 45!

Old enough to know better…..

I shook my head all the way home.
