Lil Wayne used his time on stage at Oakland’s KMEL Summer Jam to announce that he has signed a deal with “his idol” Jay Z and Roc Nation. According to The Fader, it’s unclear whether he’s signed with them under a management basis or whether there will be new music coming. But Weezy has had some very public disputes with Cash Money Records, going so far as to sue the label for $51 million and saying outright that he wanted out. So whatever the deal, he sounds happy about it.
The Fader notes that Lil Wayne has joined Tidal, putting out a single through the service.
Whatever the deal, fans are certainly eager for any new music that Wayne is ready to serve up. A clip of his Summer Jam announcement above.
