Jay-Z has just seen his $150 million deal with Live Nation come to an end, but the rap star is already looking for other huge companies to invest in his new Record Label at Roc Nation. That epic deal with Live Nation was signed in 2008. That “360 degree” deal is up next year, this means that Live Nation could sell their share of the Roc Nation label outright or buy the entire company themselves depending on what they determine to be the most advantageous move for them. Music insiders claim that the deal between Jay-Z and Live National will not be extended further than the original 10 years. Live Nation, however, does want to continue having a touring relationship with Jay-Z, which has proven to be lucrative for the company thus far. A UMG insider has stated that a relationship with Jay-Z would be great, but requests for further comments were not returned.  Check on musicbusinessworldwide.com for additional article.
