I know it might sound crazy but word is Jay Z is trying to sign fellow hip-hop star 50 Cent and Janet Jackson to his new record label, it's been reported.The rapper, who launched StarRoc earlier this week, is also said to be keen to sign Jackson's husband, Jermaine Dupri. Hmmm, the not so reliable source MEDIATAKEOUT source from a major record label said: "Jay Z approached 50 Cent [whose contract ends with Interscope in December] earlier this year and now he's talking to Janet [Jackson] and Jermaine Dupri. Janet Jackson has already terminated her deal with Island Def Jam.
Previous reports say that artists who sign to StarRoc are expected to agree all-encompassing deals – similar to Jay-Z's agreement with Live Nation – which will enable the rapper to control all of their assets.
Rumor or Real?
