That's Jay-Z and that's Doug Morris, Head of Def Jam.

Mothafuckin' Hov. While I was out being a bit of a fuck up today but cooking something nonetheless, rumors swirled around the world that Jay-Z had bought out of his contract with Def Jam which means his 10th and final album, the eagerly awaited Blueprint 3 would now be owned independently by Jay-Z himself. Huge if true. Contacting YN directly, Hov had this to say;

"I can honestly say, working with Doug Morris and LA Reid has been a unique and fulfilling experience and I respect them immensely. I've been in the family for almost my entire career.

Doug and I spoke directly and had one of the most unique "negotiations" ever. Doug won the toss but, we both won in the end..

I thank him for allowing me to be a completely independent artist. Not every artist can say they own or are given the opportunity to own all of their music."

YN: What is this coin toss about?

Hov: That takes a phone conversation, I'll save it for our interview... classic.

Sounds juicy. Jay-Z, has, and continues to break down so many boundaries and really go get it. Priceless.
