Jay Z's Roc Nation Partners with Phil McIntyre's Philymack
“Phil has built an amazing company,” said Jay-Z “We sat down and dreamt about what the future could hold if we partnered. Our views aligned on nurturing, growth and allowing creatives to stay true to their voice. That dream we are living today and it’s been amazing for all parties. We look forward to what tomorrow brings.”
“I’ve always respected and admired what the team at Roc Nation has built,” added Phil. “I’m honored to partner with such a multi-faceted leader in the entertainment business. I look forward to what the future brings for both companies.”
“We believe in Phil, his company, and his vision,” stated Jay Brown, CEO of Roc Nation. “He is committed to and has a passion for developing talent. His character and business sense are reflective of the Roc Nation philosophy.”
This past September, Nick played in Jay‘s Made in America Festival.
This partnership follows a similar arrangement between Roc Nation and Bryan Ling‘s New Community Management, which represents Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and the Strokes’ Julian Casablancas.
In May, Phil, Demi, Nick and Island Records launched a new label called Safehouse Records.
