Desiree Perez and Jay-Z Explore Options as Major Deal Draws to a Close

Roc Nation producer and exec Desiree Perez and rap mogul Jay-Z are looking into their options as Jay-Z’s 10-year, 150 million dollar deal with Live Nation draws to a close.

The change is big news in the music industry, as with the closing of the deal, either side could potentially buy out or sell to the other entity their stake in Roc Nation. According to inside sources, Live Nation is wanting to keep up the lucrative deal with Jay-Z when it comes to touring, but not the recording portion of the deals.

That’s part of a broader business decision by Live Nation to pull back from recorded music in order to focus more resources on live music and touring.

Sir Lucian Grainge, the chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group, met with both Jay-Z and Roc Nation Exec Desiree Perez, sparking rumors that the music mogul may consider buying a stake in Roc Nation. Jay-Z is potentially looking into options for added revenue as he invests in new artists and also his music streaming service, both of which could benefit from a sell-out of the recorded music portion.
