Jay Z seems to be jumping in bed with a lot of partnerships… Recently, Mr. Carter became the manager of DJ Khaled Major Key King. Now we see Hova stepping into a deal with ESM Productions and Jay’s label Roc Nation.
According to Billboard,
ESM Productions and Roc Nation announced the new partnership on Monday (April 18), where ESM Productions will work with Roc Nation on a number of large-scale events, concerts and live stream festivals. Under the deal, Scott Mirkin will serve as president of ESM Productions.
“We have been working with Roc Nation for many years and it has been a great experience from day one,” Mirkin said in a statement. “We look forward to growing with this new family and doing great things together.”
One can only suspect that there will be many tours this year from those on the Roc Nation roaster. Jay is smart, he knows how to continue see his money in multiple pots if that makes sense.
ESM Productions was founded in 1996 by Mirkin and Jenny Woo. It has worked on other Roc Nation and Jay Z-related productions including Made in America Festival, JAY Z Live from Brooklyn, TidalXColdplay and more, as well several events with world leaders such as President Barack Obama, The Dalai Lama and Pope Francis.
