Diddy Convinces Jay-Z To Sign With Warner

Posted By on June 1, 2009

    Last week we reported multiple stories about Jay-Z signing a deal to distribute his new Roc Nation label and more importantly his upcoming new "Blueprint 3" album. Well it looks like Sean "Diddy" Combs has stepped in to help get Jigga signed with Warner Music Group.

    Apparently Diddy talked up the Warner Music Group to Jay-Z at a recent Lakers game. If Jay-Z does sign the deal, it would reunite Jigga with former Island Def Jam head Lyor Cohen to release the "Blueprint 3" only, a one album shot deal. Jigga's new Roc Nation label, which he created through a deal with touring giant Live Nation, would reportedly will be included in another new deal Jay-Z is signing with Sony.
