Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Jay-Z Sign Joey Bada$$ To Roc Nation?

LISTEN: Hip-Hop is doing just fine. Even though it may not be exactly what we want, it really hasn’t been that since the very beginning. Now, Jay-Z is the don of dons to this day in Hip-Hop. Really like what dude is doing, even though he has his fair share of critics. With the rumors that he’s moving on, I am hearing Jigga man has signed the boy Joey Bada$$ to THE ROC! Man, the kid Joey is only 17 but he’s got bars of fury!

Here he is with Capital STEEZ, bless the dead.

Furthermore, Joey is from Brooklyn! Wow. He’s got that 90’s rawness!

Here is his whole album 1999.

Jay is smart for this one, should it be totally true. I gotta give it up. This is smart, because this young man is hungry. Rumor has it, Jay has given up on Jay Electronica. Read about that here.

They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry! -illseed.

    Note to new rappers: Why do you dumb fuks always sign to other rappers? they use your ‘cool, new’ image to further their old ass one, maybe you’ll drop one album but before ya know you’ve got a nice comfy place on a shelf until your dead. Whats that boys name again? lmao and thats not just Jay-Z its every tardy rapper who ‘runs’ a label.

    • MadVillain

      im sure they get suckered in with gifts n sh!t to ease the deal. a “taste of things to come” type bribe

  • 7yoyo7

    1999 is my favorite mixtape from last year. The track “killuminati” is DOPE..
    Production is crazy and Joey is lyrically talented.
    Good looking for NY!

  • water_ur_seeds

    heard someone on the net say that maybe capital steez was really joey bada$$ sacrifice to sign a big deal, now this happens with ‘the r.o.c’ of all labels is gonna set more people off… personally think its bullschitt… rip…

    • JohnnyQuesst


    • Apollo Showtime

      It is bullshit. How could he sacrifice a man who killed himself???

      • water_ur_seeds

        make it look like he killed himself… like the whitney or marilyn conspiracies

      • Q.

        And they can sacrifice your people without your knowing or consent (obviously), like they did Kanye and J. Hud’s people. You only have to commit to the beast. Y’all think this blood sacrifice sh!t is fake…Sh!t’s been going on for centuries, bro. #spiritualwarfare

    • Q.

      I would hope that wasn’t true. But these devils have a track record, so I don’t rule out sh!t. I wish Jo the best though…that boy is gifted.

  • CanYouAllHearMe

    @D_Ably IS RIGHT

  • In the year 2013 getting signed to a record label is considered to be a fail….Do it yourself sell your own stuff..The internet now allows ANYONE to sell there own music and own your royalties.

  • i kinda thougt he was signed already

  • OaklandOxymoron

    Are record deals even necessary anymore?

    That’s a tough call wish dude the best but who can deny having a name hova behind your music.

  • AK

  • bham-Jeff co.

    3 labels I would never sign to… Roc, No limit and Bad boy

    • The irony is those labels wouldn’t wanna sign u anyway

      • MadVillain

        the empire formally known as YMCMB would

  • Joey BadA$$…J.Cole…..J Elect… is Rollin’ Green from Chicago

  • I hope jayz doesn’t kill his talent. What has he done for Jcole or Jay Electronic.Might wash this kis up, nothing good comes out of JAYZ .

    • KingsCountyCrooklyn

      i agree, there’s always issues when a hip hop artist who is still active signs another artist to their label. they don’t want to be out shined or they don’t have time to work with their artist because they are focusing on their own projects/ albums. look at 50 he never wanted to be out shined and i think if weezy wasn’t locked up drake would of been a few notches lower on the totem pole. bird man seems to let his artist work freely and focuses on getting as much money out of them as possible, working smarter not harder.

    • Q.

      Cole, Elect, and Joey are to Jigga what Annakin was to Darth Sidius… They gotta take the brightest and mold them. And take that oath. LOL
      Look at Kanye’s arc. I’m laughing but serious.

  • mrgibson

    Dudes need to take note from Mac Miller and be their own bosses……labels just want their peace of your cash pie.
