Jay-Z Escapes From Record Company

Jay-Z's next album (presumably The Blueprint 3) was supposed to be the final one on his Def Jam contract. He tells Rap Radar, though, that he's bought out of his deal with Universal ("I thank [Doug Morris] for allowing me to be a completely independent artist"), making it likely that said record will be the first release from his new Live Nation venture, Roc Nation. What does this mean for you, the listener, who cares about none of this? We hope it means B3 might actually happen soon. [Rap Radar]
