JAY-Z ON HIS WAY TO COLUMBIA RECORDS … ALLEGEDLY!

IS JAY-Z MOVING TO COLUMBIA? » According to recent reports, Hip-hop mogul Sean “Jay-Z” Carter is parting ways with his record label. The rapper is rumored to be leaving his position as CEO and president of Def Jam following the appointment of superproducer/performer Jermaine Dupri as the president of the label’s urban music division in February of this year, and is alleged to be in negotiations with Columbia which coincidentally is the home of his boo, Beyonce. A source tells the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, “There isn’t room for two kings at one label. Why would Island bring in another power-hitter urban guy?” Hmm … is it just me or is Def Jam slowly dying?

The dancing was horrible and a tad offbeat, but seeing her shake that ass was pretty much the best part. Oh yeah, the singing sucked too! I swear, the world of music is going to hell in a hand basket. EVERYBODY wants a damn deal nowadays, and these record labels will just sign anyone. I’m still trying to figure out how half of the people who are out now even got signed…
