Neyo...Deam....Rihanna....Ross....n*gga was the president..cant list failures without successes...sneak hate thread...
He only directly signed one artist from that list....ive already explained the others...Jays reign at Def Jam was a failure. He had a 1% success rate signing and discovering/spotting talented artists

NeYo was actually brought to LA Ried, he passed him onto Jay to seal the deal...It was on Behind Scenes Docu VH1 about NeYo, he said he cant thank LA enough for putting him on


Jay is doing a little better with Rocnation though, i'll give him that, but still a long way to go until discovers the next megastar

Stop stanning Shakir Stewart signed Jeezy and Rozay...the same guy who signed Beyonce

L.A Ried signed Rihanna, the same guy who signed Usher and Pink


Jayz was never one to spot real talent, his best signing to date is J Cole but that was to his own label Rocnation.....Jay signed some horrible rappers on Def Jam, the only thing he did good was broker a deal to get Nas, but Nas ended up hustling Def Jam and Jay by avoiding a 360 deal...
Guess you forgot about them Roc days

Jay Z's best signings are Cole, Dream, Ne-Yo, and hopefully Jay Electronica. Other than that he's a bust. He's not Slim.

Tru-Life was garbage and actually had a bigger buzz before the Rocafella/Def Jam deal. Tru was more popular when he robbed Mobb Deep.

i don't think that he is good at spotting talent but at least he managed Rihanna, Ne-yo, Rick Ross and Young Jeezy. Got Fabulous and Nas on a major label. He got a platinum album for Ghostface k!llah and he kept pushing Ludacris and Mariah Carey's career. That's as much as I know. Now, he got J. Cole.

Give "Jack" his "Jacket" man, he did ok.
