^you just got basis it on your faith in the artists ability to deliver, similar to signing bonuses atheletes get, its a gamble. But with the higher risk the greater potential for cash. If you run around on safety all day you haven't got a shot

I see what u sayin and it only makes financial sense if he teams up with Apple and pushes the whole "digital media" sh*t...anything doesn't make sense figuring the rap industry is suffering album sales wise

yea...I dont get that...how much they say dude was worth now?? and you can't front $100 million for your OWN project? Why would I? Between him and Beyonce', they gotta be at least $300 million+
Cause he knows damn well in the current industry, theres a good chance his label will flop... Reglardless of his own album sales and Beyonces. sh*t, his last two drops both barely hit platinum and had mad money put behind them in marketing... Like they said, it aint the 90s no more...

Jay-z as an exec was a failure. Him being the head of a label is going to be a bigger failure.
If I recall he came to DefJam in 2005..Lets look at new artist to DefJam in 2005 and their first albums

1. Rhianna "Music Under the Sun" 2x Platinum Worldwide
2. Neyo "In my Own Words" 4x Platinum Worldwide
3. Jeezy "Thug Motivation 101" 2.5x Platinum Worldwide
4. Rick Ross "Port of Miami" Platinum

Fab and Nas also were brought to DefJam while he was there

If this is faliure... I want to fail horribly at every job I have

Wtf it's Jigga he should start his own major.
why he was terrible as a CEO, he didnt keven know how to market the artist on his own label.

He needs to get back with Dame Biggs b/c those are the n*ggas who handle the business side of things and kept sh*t poping. they were the n*ggas starting the clothing line, and liq, and sh*t

Jay's nothing with out Dame as i always said. and now people are seeing it

i agree but just b/c someone turns you down doesnt mean you stop trying


not always, contrary to popular belief it is possible to get something for nothing
ex: Diddy giving the LOX their publishing back
If you truly believe that Diddy gave them back ALL their publishing(as in the full percentage) your crazy.

at these broke idiots saying a guy with over a half billion dollars was a failure as an exec. You do realize that he's been an exec since Reasonable Doubt right? You don't make it to over 1/2 billion from just being a rapper. Anyway you dumb fu*ks know nothing about business. You got idiots on here saying "why don't he front his own $100 million?" That's gotta be the dumbest sh*t I've heard on here.
