Jay-Z -- Set To Cop A $20 Million Dollar Deal With SAMSUNG Mobile?
Rap icon Jay-Z is on the brink of singing a deal with Samsung Mobile that would net him $20 million dollars. Get the deets on the rumored deal inside....
Rapper Jay-Z, whom FORBES Magazine has listed as one of the wealthiest hip hop artists in the world, is reportedly set to add $20 million dollar to his bank account once a deal with Samsung Mobile is inked.
So what would entice Jay-Z to lend his image to Samsung? An insider told the NY Post,
"The eight-figure deal will be inked in the next few weeks, and is the biggest of its kind. You can speculate that he’ll want to develop some kind of new music-streaming service to promote his acts and music on mobile devices."
In other Jay-Z news, insiders say his Roc Nation Sports group is on the verge of signing Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson. But because DeSean recently fired his former agent, he can't be "courted" publicly by Roc Nation until AFTER he files paperwork with the NFL players union. But for now....all eyes point towards the Roc.
We just hope DeSean doesn't post any photos of himself with Jay-Z like Geno Smith did before he signed. Players have to keep those "non-agent relationships" on the down low to avoid penalties and fines.
