Jay-Z has pretty much proven himself to be much more than a rapper. In fact, he’s grown into a savvy business man, and with his recent business venture Roc Nation Sports already taking off much faster than most sports agents can keep up, it looks like Jay-Z has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. As we recently reported, he is taking a cue from his wife Beyonce’s playbook and reportedly inking a multimillion dollar deal with Electronics heavyweight Samsung. The New York Post speculated a deal was in the works a couple of weeks ago. The publication wrote:


Jay-Z is about to ink a hugely lucrative deal with Samsung Mobile, sources tell Page Six. The contract is said to be worth as much as $20 million. One source said, “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.”


Well it looks like the deal between Jay-Z and Samsung may have just gotten confirmed. In fact, Urban Belle just got an invite alerting us of a major announcement going down on Sunday. Check it out:

Sounds like this could be a major partnership between Jay-Z and Samsung. While we won’t know the specifics until Sunday at 9:15 EST during the NBA Finals, if it has anything to do with Jigga, we expect it to be a pretty big deal.


Update: In a new commercial sponsored by Samsung, Jay-Z has confirmed “Magna Carta Holy Grail” as his upcoming album’s title. In the new partnership with Samsung, Jay and the tech company will send out the album “for free” to one million lucky users on a unique app that can be downloaded on select Samsung devices.

The Magna Carta app will be available for download on June 24, and it will also give users a closer glimpse on the making of the new album. Jay has agreed to share his personal stories and inspiration behind the new music. The app can also be shared with other Galaxy owners on Facebook, Twitter, and S Beam.

As far as the album details are concerned, July 7th is the release date, but those with the app will be able to get it on the 4th of July.

Check out the announcement below:


  1. Well I will be watching the game hoping the Spurs win lol anyways so we will see. I expect anything with Jay-z attached to it to be big.

  2. Jay-Z just keeps on stacking millions. I’d love it if he paid off some of my student loans. LOL!

  3. Kanye wants to be Jay-Z…he wants every part of his life. He wants Kim to be his Beyonce, now they have a baby girl too…it’s like the damn Twilight Zone. Creepy sh-t.

  4. Bring it. After that crappy Kanye album I just listened to, I’m excited to hear about some quality music on the way.

  5. I’m über-excited about this! And is it me or did Ye get his no single inspiration from Jay-Z’s project?

  6. Yo his album will be crazy. Just the scene of him and the high level of producers he had in one room. Jay is proof the real hip hop artist never go away
