Lil Wayne signs to Roc Nation
Following his long troubles with Cash money records, Rapper Lil Wayne announced that he has joined the Roc Nation family during a show at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania. He told the crowd that he’s a member of Roc Nation. He said:
“Is it cool if I just say it? It’s the Roc. ”“You know I’m a member of that team now.” After sharing the news, Wayne put up the Roc’s diamond hand sign before launching back into his performance. Wayne has been contemplating a deal with Jay Z for years, dating back to the days of Roc-A-Fella Records.
If this deal works out, the longtime Cash Money Records artist will finally move to another label for the first time in his career. However, this is not the first time he has announced that he was a part of Roc Nation.
Back in 2015, the rapper said he signed a deal with Jay Z but it turned out to be false news. He simply secured a partnership with Tidal.
