Desiree Perez & Roc Nation

Jay-Z’s epic deal with Live Nation, which was said to be worth an estimated $150 million, is drawing near to an end, and as of late he has been signaling many industry titans about investing in his recorded music business with Roc Nation. The original deal with Live Nation began in 2008 and was set to last for 10 years.
