Jay-Z Carter Music Group Record Label
Jay-Z Carter Music Group Record Label – Jay-Z is set to create a new record label called Carter Music Group .The artist who recently signed a $150 million contract with concert promoter Live Nation is in talks with WMG/Atlantic to set up his own record label, tentatively called the Carter Music Group, with former managers Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles.A source told the New York Daily News :
“Jay’s deal with Live Nation is massive. But if he were to cut a deal with WMG/Atlantic, he’d make even more headlines. Jay-Z, Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles are all brand names. They’re the industry’s heavy hitters, and the combination would bring them a lot of attention. They would be unstoppable. Jay himself is the most successful rapper-turned-businessman out there.”
The source added:
“Jay obviously wants to work something out with his friends. He wants to get the dream team back together. There have been a few whiffs of a reunion in the past, but only now is something finally starting to happen.This is big in hip-hop. These are three of the most powerful men in music, who might be working together, and there’s no question the success they’ll have as a team will be huge.”
Jay-Z is set to release of his new album ‘The Blueprint 3′ later this year.
