diddy>jay-z at buisness

he cant get the masters from reasonable doubt
What the fu*k has that got to do with anything?

Dame and Biggs won't sell their ownership of "RD" for any price... Out of spite.

How the fu*k does that say anything about Jay as a buisness man?

It has a lot to do with it d!ckhead

How don't you own your 1st and best album and your this "big time CEO"?

Come on man..take the blinders off and stop slurping this guy.

He is a legend in the music field and he's a top 5 lyricist of all time.

For you to sit here and act like he's a great business man is absurd.

How many artists do you know get ownership to their masters of their first album when they come out???

The fact of the matter is, he did get Def Jam and Universal's share of the Masters for RD(which is incredible).

As has already been stated, Dame and Biggs refuse to part their's out of spite... It's personal... Has nothing to do with buisness.

That will not sell for any price.

This is not debateable.

Jay not owning all of the masters to "RD" has nothing to do with buisness... It's all personal.

By the way, I can gurantee you that your favorite rapper doesn't owner the Masters to their best album either.

I just lost a flip for five stacks.



Buying Dame out and selling Roc-A-Wear then marrying B was probably the best thing Jay did.

@ comparing Dame to Bill Gates, Mark Zukerberg, and Russel Simmons...

That don't make another because they don't have to... They're billionaires... And still making money from those things as we speak.

Dame ain't making sh*t... And can't even pay his taxes or for his kid to go to the college he wants.

@ how stupid some of you people are.

Why are you mocking him. He's absolutely right.

That was a great comparison.

No I did not...

He compared two technical/computer genuises and one person who started a company from the ground up before an artform was even truly popular to a guy who's success was based entirely off of his affiliation with an entertainer...

I ask again, to all of you people who say Dame was the brains...

Why is he no longer successful in anything???? He's borderline broke in context to where he used to be...

B.I.G. died... Puff continued to strive.

If Dame is what yall say he is, why does he have literally nothing going on anymore for himself???

But the guy who left him, and continues to prosper and grow his money... He's the one who's being questioned in this thread?

Yall got the game all fukked up and backwards...

Get a grip with reality.

Again, @ Comparing Dame to Bill Gates and Mark Zukerberg

What investments are you talking about?

Somebody name me a company Jay has invested in since Dame has left that has been successful.

J Hotels - failure
Nets - No profit
Carols Daughter - No profit

All I ask is for 1 investment like Diddy has Ciroc and 50 has Vitamin Water.
Actually I can. Its regarding Rocawear-after he sold it while it making a profits in over 25 other countries to I believe Izod, he is still the corporate spokesman and major shareholder in Rocawear, similar to how Russell Simmons is with his Phat Farm clothing company. Keep in mind when it under borg Dame and Hov, their focus was purely urbanwear, and after Dame has amassed profits after changing the focus to more upscale line of clothes like Sean john did

Rocawear was started by Dame, Jay and Biggs. I want to know what investment has Jay Z had since Dame and Biggs left that has made him a great deal of money.

If me and you start a clothing line, then me and you sever our relationship with each other and you keep the clothing line...then sell it for a million dollars...that's not an investment you started alone.
Diddy invested in Ciroc without a partner as did 50 with Vitamin Water.
What about Jay?
Grant it...I'll give it to him that he tried with the J Hotels but since he's not a smart business man he didn't know that it would be damn near impossible to build a hotel in NYC of all places during the recession we had.
