yep i just read about this.............


With rumors swirling around Jay's Def Jam contract buyout, Hov exclusively spoke to Rap Radar to confirm the speculation.

"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?


Hov: That takes a phone conversation, I'll save it for our interview... classic.

i wonder how members of the ol roc era feel....
