Jay-Z Signs To Warner/Chappell Music
The Roc Nation general is making yet another business move as of yesterday when Warner/Chappell Music, the publishing sector of Warner Music Group, announced its new deal with Jay-Z to carry out the copyrights of his own songs and those on the music publishing roster of his respective company, Roc Nation. As of yesterday, Jay-Z signed him and his Roc Nation imprint to a global publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. Warner/Chappell will effectively begin implementing Jay-Z’s catalog stretching back to 2008, and by the end of year, it will take on his early career hits in addition. Jay-Z has had a long healthy relationship with publishing executive Jon Platt which ultimately led to his decision to join with Warner/Chappell. In regards to the new business dealings, both men were full of praise for each other.
