Meek Mill Partners With Jay Z To Launch ‘Dream Chasers’ Record Label
To make it official, the two signed papers Tuesday in New York City in front of a small media gathering at Roc Nation’s midtown headquarters.
Holding the title of president of Dream Chasers, a joint venture with Roc Nation, Meek will oversee the label and build a staff to sign and develop artists. The label will also handle its own operations, creative strategy, marketing and business affairs. Meek is also planning to open a recording studio for use by the label’s artists.
In an interview with “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King, Meek Mill, and Jay-Z open up about why they think it’s important to establish a legacy as entrepreneurs for the next generation of artists.
“Everything he has done leading up to this point shows he is ready to [lead] the next generation. We look at the big picture — this is way beyond signing artists and having hot records”, Jay Z said.
This is a joint venture with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and marks the beginning of a new chapter for the 32-year-old emcee on the business side of the music industry.
