JAY Z Splits From Longtime Roc Nation Business Partner

By: Ashleigh Demi

With one fight after another, “99 Problems” rapper JAY Z split from his longtime business partner John Meneilly.  Meneilly helped build the record-label-turned-talent-management empire, Roc Nation.

According to NY Daily News and Confidenti@l, music industry officials say of Meneilly, “it wasn’t his choice.”

For more than a decade, Meneilly sat at the center of JAY Z’s inner circle. The former Provident Financial executive is credited to the rise of Rocawear clothing line, which Jay Z sold for $200 million in 2007.   Meneilly was also behind JAY Z’s huge deal with Samsung last year, which instantly moved a million copies of the rapper’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail.”

Earlier this year, JAY Z was caught on surveillance video being involved in a physical altercation with sister-in-law Solange after the Met Ball Gala.
