CLAP FOR HIM: Jay Z Set To Launch Venture Capital Fund

CLAP FOR HIM: Jay Z Set To Launch Venture Capital Fund

    "But I'm just a hustler disguised as a rapper. In fact you can't fit this hustle inside of a wrapper.." Shawn Carter
    According to multiple sources Rapper and Mogul Jay Z is launching a venture capital fund. Venture capital is a type of funding for a new or growing business. It usually comes from venture capital firms that specialize in building high risk financial portfolios. With venture capital, the venture capital firm gives funding to the startup company in exchange for equity in the startup.
    One of his partners will be Jay Brown, a longtime business partner and president of Roc Nation. The pair also is scouring the venture market for a full-time investment partner. The "Jays" also are partnering with Sherpa Capital, although this won't be a Sherpa-branded effort, and existing Sherpa staff won't be leading investments.
    Expect the focus to be on seed-stage tech opportunities, with this really being the institutionalization of Jay Z and Jay Brown's previous angel investing activities. For example, they both were in Uber's Series B, at a $300m pre-money. Other investments have included JetSmarter, plus his involvement and stake in music streaming service Tidal.

BEEF OVER:  Jim Jones Signs To Roc Nation

BEEF OVER: Jim Jones Signs To Roc Nation

    Everyone is taking their talents over to Roc Nation. First Yo Gotti, The Lox, Fat Joe and now Jim Jones is calling Roc Nation home after signing a management deal. It was rather surprising due to the rocky history of Jim and Jay. Which was always made public by Jimmy. However we live and learn. With Jim being about his paper he had this to say about his recent business move:
    "As you get older you realize that most of your peers are either dead or in jail,”
    Jones said in a quote provided to Billboard.
    "The fact that we can move past the BS is a testimony [to] how much we have grown."

It's a done deal... Jim Jones/Roc Nation. #rocnation #vamplife

CHANGE OF HEART: Kanye West Deletes All Tweets On His Twitter Account Supporting Donald Trump

CHANGE OF HEART: Kanye West Deletes All Tweets On His Twitter Account Supporting Donald Trump

    It was all good just a couple of months ago....
    So you guys remember when Kanye West had a meeting with Donald Trump after he won the 2016 Presidential Election? We were all pissed and in shocked!! Dude was pretty much all over the place. However after being off the scene for a while, perhaps Ye is coming to his senses. Today if you visit his Twitter account anything related to Trump has been deleted. Word on the street is the removal of his Trump Tweets are due to Ye being unhappy with Donnie's performance thus far as POTUS......
    However with social media once you put it out there you can NEVER really delete it. Screenshots will always be on deck to remind you....
    The people will never forget Mr.West.
