Jay Z – Addresses Def Jam Situation

The internet has been buzzing like crazy about the chance of Jay Z leaving Def Jam.

Jigga addressed all the rumors that have been on the Internet and even the NY Times with EW.

The New York Daily News said last week that talks were stalling because you made some big demands. Is there any truth to that?

No.

So from your perspective, do you think you’ll be at Def Jam next year?

Yeah, I think — I don’t know. Let me not even say that. I don’t know. We’ll see how it goes. But seriously, it’s not about money. That’s really the last thing. Of course, as a person that does these type of things and puts his heart and soul into it — and it’s effective, as the Grammys would indicate — you want to be compensated for what you do. But it’s really not about money. It’s really about the future of the music business, and not wasting anyone’s time. I don’t ever want to sit in a seat just to sit in a seat. I could be off doing something else that’s beneficial to the future of the music business as well as myself. So it’s not about money! I mean, you couldn’t pay me enough. And I don’t mean that in a cocky way.
