    Jay-Z, Next President of Def Jam?
    Thursday - October 28, 2004
    Deniece Mason

    Is Jay-Z the next president of Def Jam? It seems as if that long time rumor could have more truth to it than people have realized. According to the Associated Press Def Jam is very close to sealing a deal with Jay-Z to bring him on as president of the company. Negotiations have not been finalized but it is said that a deal could be done within the next few weeks.

    If Jay-Z becomes president, he will take over a position formerly occupied by Kevin Liles, who had been with the company for years and now holds an executive VP position at Warner Music Group. Jay-Z, Kareem Burke and Damon Dash are in separate talks to sell their jointly founded label Roc-A-Fella Records to Universal Music Group. Retiring from the rap game after releasing “The Black Album”, Jay-Z surprised hip-hop heads when he announced that he would hit the road with R. Kelly on “The Best of Both Worlds” tour. The duo re-released their album “The Best of Both Worlds: Unfinished Business” on October 26th to support the tour.

                  Jay-Z 10 Days Closer To Being Def Jam Prez

                  Jay-Z is reportedly in final negotiations to become president of Island Def Jam and is prepping the release of his Fade To Black documentary.

                  According to sources close to the deal, negotiations have now been going on for weeks and should be finalized within the next 10 days. If he becomes president, Hov would report to new chairman Antonio "L.A." Reid and replace his former boss Kevin Liles.

                  Liles was instrumental to Jay's success since his addition to the Def Jam family in 1996. Sources say Jiggaman is expected to sign a three-year deal with the label. Def Jam has also been in talks to buy Roc-A-Fella Records from Jay and partners Damon Dash and Kareem "Biggs" Burke for a reported $10 million.

                  In related news, the press has been treated to several preview screenings of Fade To Black in the past week. The film documents Hov's Madison Square Garden farewell concert and features Young as he crafts The Black Album. The studio scenes show Hov vibe with Young Guru, 9th Wonder, Just Blaze, Kanye West, Timbaland and Rick Rubin during recording sessions for standout The Black Album cuts like "What More Can I Say," "99 Problems," "December 4th," "Lucifer," and "Dirt Off Your Shoulder."

                  Fade To Black premiers on Nov. 5.
