Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 Goes To Atlantic, Roc Nation Goes To Sony

After news broke last week that Jay-Z has been speaking to both Warner and Sony since leaving Def Jam Recordings, it seems as if the Brooklyn MC has found a new home. Actually it looks like he found two.

MTV News has confirmed that Jay’s new album, The Blueprint 3, will be coming out on the 8th anniversary of his original multi-platinum selling Blueprint. Rumored to hit shelves on September 11, the disc will be distributed by Atlantic Records, which falls under his past partners Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles’ Waner Music Group company.

At the same time HitsDailyDouble reports that, while the deal has not officially been announced yet, Hov has decided to bring his Live Nation label, Roc Nation, to Sony.

As of press time neither Jay nor any of the aforementioned labels have issued any statements about the reported deals.
