Jay-Z: 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?
Jay-Z: That takes a phone conversation, I’ll save it for our interview… classic.
With rumors swirling around Jay’s Def Jam contract buyout, Hov exclusively spoke to Rap Radar to confirm the speculation.
