It’s over. Jay-Z will step down as the president of Def Jam when his contract expires this year. Where does this leave the Stans? We can imagine the facial expressions on LL and every other Def Jam artist who believed Camel was the root of their problems.

    Merry Christmas

  • Dalia

    I knew that was coming. Too much mess was going on and Jay-Z was the only one getting rich!


    oh oh, i smell trouble. now that he wont be so busy BDAY will have nothing but time to get his ass to hitch her up…lol

    it’s been a good run. go relax jay, relax.


  • Just a thought....

    I mean we knew this was coming.

    I mean it’s different if you were an successful artist and hen you naturally move up in the industry to an executive position. But it’s another thing when you get it just because you have been one of the more successful artists on the label.

    Alot of these “young” cats are getting way too much success and haven’t even earned it or don’t know anything about the industry. They want to own everything before they are 40 and think they can be in every industry. I mean some of these cats really think they are doing things, up there witht he big dogs.

  • leave it be

    “I wonder what this means for rihanna.”

    please. rihanna just won YET ANOTHER award over has-been beyonce the other night, and with the grammys coming up, she’s on to bigger and better things.

  • sister

    also FYI…Def Jam R&B THRIVED under Jay-Z…hip-hop was down, but it was that way industry wide…

  • anonymous

    but if he’s the almighty jay-z like you dick-riders make him out to be, then def jam should have had the biggest sales ever in their entire history.

  • sister


    nobody’s a d*-rider, but not a hater either…man did and is doing his thing…you can’t not like him personally or as performer…but he’s kinda gettin it right now…seriously…he owns an NBA team, has a franchise bar about to drop in Vegas and might open a hotel in MANHATTAN, NY!!! that’s kinda major.
