The Boy Genius Report is reporting that rapper Jay-Z may be heading a new record label with Steve Jobs at Apple. People have been speculating about this move for months. If this is true then the official announcement will be made at the MacWorld Conference & Expo. Here's an excerpt from TBGR
This one’s been floating around like a hot air balloon, but we’ve just about confirmed it. For those that don’t know, Jay-Z left Def Jam as President last month, and everyone’s been talking about where he’s heading. While this might be one of his many other venutures, we just heard that Jay-Z is launching a record label with Apple. No, Beyonce will not be formally attached. This is from a high-up person attached to Jay (no, not who you’re thinking), and it’s said to be a go! Jay is supposedly totally into the business model, and really wants this to happen. [SOURCE]
CNBC spoke about the rumor but some believe a Apple record label may not be a reality, because it would damage Steve Job's relationships with traditional distributors at the record labels. WATCH THE CNBC REPORT BELOW.
Kanye West sent the following message to his fans on his blog yesterday. His last blog post was on November 10 before his mother, Dr. Donda West, tragically passed away.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT
When I was in Europe I would play this game for hours and hours... it helped me zone out. Everybody would get envolved... Derrick Dudley (Common's manager) and Consequence were the best other than me... I beat Lexi... Don C beat Jay... Tony Williams beat Common... but every now and then people would speak of this legendary connect 4 champion........... BEYONCE!!! I had 2 play her!...so last night at Jay's new 40/40 club in Las Vegas (which is sidebar, crazy big w/ 24krt gold flooring, Black Jack tables, $500 slot machines,the biggest projection screen in the universe and the best turkey burgers I've ever had in my life) she beat me 9 times in a row! (and I didn't even spaz lol) here's a photo of the only game I won! Happy new year everybody...
Glad to see you're back 'Ye. We have you and Mom West in our hearts and prayers.
