Rihanna Reportedly Leaves Def Jam To Sign With Jay Z's Roc Nation

(AllHipHop News) If a multi-platinum artist leaves the most storied Hip Hop label of all time and no press release is sent, did it really happen? According to reports, Rihanna has left Island Def Jam and has signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation.

Rihanna has always been managed by Jay Z’s Roc Nation label but appears to now be a signed artist. On Def Jam’s official site, Rihanna is not listed in the ARTIST section with such current artists as Kanye West, Frank Ocean and former rival Teyana Taylor. Rihanna enlisted Jay Z’s Roc Nation as help with her management in 2010, however the site now has Rihanna as a LABEL artist along with J. Cole, Jay Electroinca and others:

  • My guess is that Kanye will bounce next. Def Jam is straight hurting right now. No dope sh*t in years!

    • tha OG

      My nigga YG just dropped the best album of the year of DefJam

      • The artists are decent. But the label sucks. People are leaving for a reason.

      • Nervz

        Only a down south dude would say YG dropped the best album of the year…. Not only do down south people move slow, I see they think slow.

      • tha OG

        YG is from the westcost #Bombton

      • Sean Taylor

        You must be one of those down south dudes he’s talking about because you seem really slow…that comment flew right over your head.

    • YouKnowNothing

      LOL this site is just incredible, isn’t it? They don’t know how to do basic journalistic homework. Someone sends them an email and they report it as fact if it sounds juicy enough.
