Jay Z can add a new title to his list of accomplishments – platinum selling rapper, NBA owner, real estate mogul, restaurateur … and now business manager. MediaTakeOut.com just got EXCLUSIVE confirmation that Jigga has begun managing recording artists.
And it’s not just new artists either. MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that Jigga’s first artist is R&B singer Brandy Norwood. Brandy had been managed for most of her career by her mother Sonya Norwood. It’s not clear whether Jigga’s “management” deal with Brandy will be exclusive – or whether Sonya will stay on as a co-manager.
Thats whats up... She need a good jolt to her dyin singing career... Look what Jay did for Rhianna... Im wit it...
*** I thought I already posted...
Jigga has that midas touch--we'll see
*** Jay getting money
1) he owns a SMALL, very SMALL % of the nets. google & u will see. maybe about 6mill dollars in the nets so he aint NO MARK CUBAN.
2) he made RHIanna Big so BRANDY could use the come back. & we know RiRi had to put in work so just wait for that Rumurs that they seein each other
I Need A Manager Lol
Bring Brandy back. Her songs are cool.
...spent one minute tryna dig her out
She needs to do something cause her talent isn't being displayed like it should! I'm rooting for ya Moesha!
NO JAY ONLY DO GOOD MANAGEMENT TO GIRLS WHO HE IS DAGGERING AND FCUK BRANDY TALKING THAT THERE IS NO GOOD LOOKING GUYS IN JAMAICA WIT HERE UGLY ***
Well he can't do the GOOD GIRL GONE BAD thing with Brandy cause she tries to be too innoncent. I'll never forget on that MTV show putting up that facade like she was married to her baby's father. Then she started giving that man a hard time and he told on her. I hope he bring her eyes closer together and another hair style to get her back on track.
Good, she can sing....never will really accepted on the Mary J level, but all of her albums are good she just has to have better marketing and promotion....She needs to get the stick outta her a*& and act normal...we need a young classy artist that isn't showing her ti*& all the time....
"I hope he bring her eyes closer together"
Dude...that is sooo wrong but sounds sooo logical. LOL
I think it's a good move cause Brandy got some good music that just ain't being played on the radio. She got some hot new sh!t I'm listening to on my iPod. I don't know why the music industry is sleeping on her. But then it does explain why nobody's listening to radio or buying records. Because they don't know good music.
I DONT KNOW ABOUT THIS I THINK HE SHOULD OF DID THIS BEFORE HER ALBUM DROP I THINK ITS A LIL TOO LATE NOW ANYWAY I DONT LIKE THOSE JEANS SHES WEARING IN THAT PIC...
THAT'S ABOUT AS BAD A MOVE FOR JIGGA AS AIG GIVING BONUS MONEY TO EXECS....
SHE HAS A GOOD VOICE AND I HOPE HE WOULD FINALLY CHANGE HER CAREER BY MAKING HER SING GET SOME ONE ESLE TO LIP SING WORTH LOOKING AT SHE NEEDS A BODY DOUBLE ASAP !!!!!!!!!! I DON'T GET IT ????????
good move Jay, Brandy can sing.
COOL GOOD MOVE
Good business move.
HMM DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY UNTIL I SEE THE FACTS!
Smart decision on both parts!
That is my girl!
SO SADDDDDDDD JAY YOU WILLNEVER HAVE A FAMILY, THE DEAL IS STILL ON THE TABLE!!!!!
I never realized how pretty Brandy is, nice picture. Back to the post, Huh, where did that ideal come from?
Animals in sea and dry land stick together.
Hammer head shark + Desert camel= great music
YOU KNOW WHAT, HOLD ON, OKAY, I'M NOT TRYING TO BE FUNNY BUT DON'T THEY KINDA LOOK GOOD PAIRED UP, BEYONCE YOU BETTER WATCH OUT, CAUSE BRANDY WILL SIT DOWN AND HAVE SOME BABIES, AND YOU YOU KNOW HER BABY WAS BY HER MANAGER. OKAY BEY THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING!! YOU BETTA DO THAT TOUR AND COME HOME AND HAVE SOME BABIES, I'M TRYING TO TELL YOU SEAN NOT GOING TO BE WAITING FOREVER, TACKYTINA TELLA HER YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPEN WITH MATT THE CRACKHEAD, THE MISTRESS, AND KELLY!!!!!
LOL @ KEEYSHAJ50. I don't like those jeans either. With that big of a rip in them, she could've wore *** for that $hit.
But I'm with you MTO, Jigga what? LOL
Can you guys write one story without saying "MEDIAAKEOUT JUST CAUGHT WIND".
Good for Brandy. I think Jay could really help her.
Don't you mean? That's his new jump off venture! Why wouldn't she just keep the money in the family and continue to let her moms manage her career? She needs to just let Rodney Jerkins keep hookin up those beats... THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HUMMMM!!!! Looking for a unique gift? visit 4u2.com
Yeah, do the *** thang brandy!!! I like Jayz music!!!
THIS IS A DUMB MOVE FOR BRANDY! IF SHE GOES THROUGH WITH THIS, IT WILL BE THE FINAL NAIL IN HER COFFIN.
FIRST HOW JAYZ GONE BRING HER BACK WHEN HE COULDNT EVEN BRING HIMSELF BACK. AT LAST CHECK, HIS ALBUMS WASN'T SELLING LIKE CANDY EITHER.
NUMBER 2, WHY WOULD SHE EXPECT JAYZ TO DEVOTE ALL OF HIS ENERGY TO HER, WHEN "SUPPOSEDLY" HE'S MARRIED TO THE "HOTTEST AND BADDEST" ONE OUT! IF HE SUCCEEDS, YOU KNOW BEYONCE GONE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT, WHICH IS GONNA CAUSE JAYZ TO HOLD BACK SOME WITH BRANDY. CAUSE WE ALL KNOW BRANDY'S VOICE CAN BLOW BEYONCE'S LACEFRONT OFF!
I THINK THIS IS A BAD MOVE FOR BRANDY! I THINK SHE SHOULD SIGN WITH MANNY, KEYSHIA'S MANAGER, CAUSE HE GET STUFF DONE!
PEOPLE GIVE JAYZ WAY TOO MUCH CREDIT WITH HIS FAKE SWAGGER AND FAKE GANGSTA ATTITUDE. TRUST IF HE GET'S TRIED, HE GONE CRY LIKE A REAL BYTCH.
HE'S NO MORE THAN A MAN WHOSE FAKED HIS WAY THROUGH LIFE AND STOLE FROM ONE OF THE BEST RAP ARTIST EVER, BIGGIE.
I WISH PEOPLE STOP GIVING HIM JOBS JUST BASED ON HIS NAME! HE NEVER RAN A RECORD LABEL IN LIFE, BUT THAT GAVE THAT TO HIM, AND HE ONLY HELPED HIS JUMPOFF SUCCEED. THOUGH YES I DO LIKE HER, BUT HE RAN THAT RECORD LABEL INTO THE GROUND.
wow brandy is so over, not even jayz could give life to her career.
sHES under new management now all she needs is a new wiga-weave (wig or weave)
jay z must really like workin wit dem nasty betches.
he looks sexy in that pic too
SHe can't do any worse.
@bpositve your not living up 2 your screen name hon
@whatwhatwhat I'm going to have to check out her other songs. What's the name of her recent album. And we all know that Brandy's eyes are a little far apart.
that might be good for her i miss the old brandy like "i wanna be down"
oh brandy hell no! brandy is one of my fav singers, but i hope she dont eva wear them pants again!
whew!!! oh my ***! well not that u gotten that monkey off ur back...lol
@ SAFARI ..ROFLMAO... PUT HER EYES CLOSER TEARS...THAT'S IT JAY GIVE *** MATTY A RUN FOR HIS MONEY SHOW HOW OLD SCHOOLERS CAN STILL GET WITH IT,JAY IS A SWAGGER JACKER JUST LIKE HIS WIFE, BUT IF JAY MANAGING BRANDY MEANS WE SEE LESS OF BEYONCE THEN I'M ALL FOR IT
I LIKE BRANDY. I HOPE HE CAN DO SOMETHING FOR HER
@BPOSITIVE AN CALLICREW... CO SIGN REAL TALK
Thats a good look.....but hasnt she been in tha game longer than Jigga??? Either way its a major look she gets so overlooked she needs a stronger team behind her.......
MEN LIE,WOMEN LIE, NUMBERS DON'T
Jay Z ushered in (no pun intended) Kanye, NeYo and Rihanna. Three of the biggest names in the music industry today. I think he knows what he's doing, and could be a good influence in her career. Good for Brandy. I really like her music.
I luv Brandy! the ORIGINAL "Queen B"!! f**K what you heard!
Jay is rich so good for Brandy. You know them people gonna come after her again when they hear about this!
HE BETTER HIIT THAT!
@bpositive & Callicrew
Yes beyonce is very jealous & would have a problem with this if brandy blows up. Her Self-absorbed expired azz want all the attention only on her
Well good for Brandy! I've always loved her and those jeans are HOT!
UMMM ACTUALLY THE JEANS ARE DUMB!
I think her last album was Human. And she released some underground stuff too. Anyways her songs are way to good not to be played on the radio.
Good look for her! I wish her much success.
Great because I loved Brandy's last cd- she needs a change and hopefully this will get her the boost she needs.
I HOPE HE CAN SAVE HER B/C SHE NEEDS HELP! BRANDY IS TALL, SKINNY & LANKY! SHE HAS NO *** APPEAL IN MY OPINION...SHE NEEDS TO GAIN ABOUT 15-20LBS,HIRE A STYLIST, GET A DANCE INSTRUCTOR & DROP THE LACE FRONT WIGS.
ONCE SHE TAKES MY ADVICE SHE SHOULD BE STARIGHT! LMAO!
This is definitely a good look. Brandy's music is always incredible but for some reason it doesnt reach the masses. People dont even know she has a new album. Hopefully Jay helps her with that.
I think that's great especially for her because she has poor management. I think Jay Z can revive her after seeing what he did with Rihanna, I believe he can do it. Brandy messed up when she left her initial management after her break up. It was downhill from there but I say go for it. She's a great talent and to be honest, Aaliyah isn't here anymore and i'm sick of hearing the same R&B voices all of the time. The radio despersately needs a new voice. Geez. And where the heck is fergie and Gwen? Even they took a break.
I know Gwen isn't R&B but I still dig her anyway lol. GO BRANDY!!!
Thats cool! I like Brandy
Oh cool. This should be interesting.
If this is true this can be good if he doesn't do a Tearri Mari on her.
YEEEEEEEEEAAAAHHHH!!! THIS THE BEST NEWS I HEARD ALL YEAR!!! JAY Z I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MTO better not be lying as usual because that girl truly has the gift of singing and need to be elevated to her rightful spot at the top!
somebody's gotta help the girl
I guess she'll be a bad girl getting worse.. .
lol @ keith
*** z going to knock her p*ssy off lets bet .
Brandy vs Bey coming soon 09 dum @sses
BRANDY'S LAST EFFORT FLOP'D,, JOCK'*** JAY AINT GONNA SAVE HER....HE SLIPPIN WITH HIS RAPS & HIS PRODUCTION FOR RnB IS NOT UP TO PARR,,,BAD MOVE.
There's nothing wrong with B's music. It's this dumbed down music by artist like T-Pain, The Dream, and many others that makes trouble for good artist who make good music. The music is terrible.
Brandy has made some of the best songs. She has classic album, especially Never Say Never. The society of the music game today has a love them then leave them mentality. They turn their backs on great artist and shove these fly by *** artist down our throats. There's no more longevity,it's all about what's hot at this second. They better make a change for the better before the music fades to black.
MTO, I already reported this on the post about them going out together. In the future, you required to credit me for using my reports in your story, LOL!
BRANDY DOES NEED BETTER MANAGEMENT OF SOME SORT.
HOPEFULLY JIGGA WILL DO HER JUSTICE. SHE'S AN EXCELLENT SONGTRESS WIIH MEDIOCRE MARKETING AND MANAGEMENT, THAT COULD STAND A BIT OF A BOOST.
WORK SOME MAGIC, JIGGA JIG.
Oh i guess he's gonna save her career, to late, she's a has been!!!!!! Keisha Cole all day baby!!!!
BRANDY IS ONE OF THE FEW THAT CAN REALLY SING. AND SHE LOOKS GREAT ON THAT PHOTO. GOOD FOR HER.
CHECK THE IS OUT!!!
CHRIS BROWN DISS
Good luck with that 1
Its good to see ugly folk stickin together like that.
Good, maybe she can finally revive her career now..
AINT BRANDY'$ CAREER D0NE?...HA HA HA..FO.REAL DOE
Actually, if no one buys your music, or pays to see your concerts, how can u be saved?? It takes more than good managing. U NEED your fans support.
THATS GOOD, GO BRANDY..THE LATEST CD IS PRETTY GOOD...
NOW THOSE JEANS ARE THE BIZNESS..AND BRANDY CAN BLOW ALL BEYONCES AND RHIANNAS RIGHT OUT OF THE WATER...DON'T KNOW WHAT JAY Z CAN DO FOR HER..TURN HER OWN TO HIS DEVIL WORSHIPPING...CAUSE THAT'A ABOUT IT..
PEOPLE ARE SLEEPING ON BRANDY BECAUSE ALL THESE DIRTY SKANKY PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD CARE ABOUT ANYMORE IS ***. BRANDY HAS SOME DEEP GREATLY WRITTEN SONGS ON HER NEW ALBUM..I JUST MAY HAVE TO GO BUY IT!!
BRANDY IS SOOO OVER! JIGGA BE BETTER MANAGING RAY J'S PORN CAREER. JUST SAYIN!!!
How Odd is that just a couple of days ago Brandy was out hanging with Rihanna and now Jay-Z is about to be Brandy's manager????
SRIUSLY, BRANDY NEEDS THE RIGHT PROMOTION. HOPE JAY Z CAN RUB SOME OF BEYONCE'S "LET IT ALL HANG OUT MAGIC" TO MARKET BRANDY. SHE CANT EVEN GET ON LATE *** TALK SHOWS. DAMMMN!
I hope he can promote some style in her brandy ain't never been able to dress, he should go holla at Monica her voice is way stronger than Brandy's who wants to hear brandy anymore anyway unless it is a banger J may be wasting money on her music. Hope all goes well Brandy *** talk ta ya brother he gonna get aids at the rate he going but maybe he is just following in his sisters footsteps cause we all know brandy was WILD back in the day
JIGGA THE FIRST OR OF BUSINESS IS A NEW STYLIST & WEAVE FOR BRANDY!!! PLEASE!!!
jigga will be stabbing that before you know it.
Well wethr he smashes or not i hope he gets her back to tht 1999 brandy i liked ....but like some of ya said i dont think shes yellow enough lmaooo
Jigga looks cute in that pic. He's a smart man. Brandy is smart for connect with him.
yea usually id gag at this...but as a brandy fan...this should work 4 her..that last album sucked...he may add sum seasoning to it..
need music from Brandy right now
brandys a talented artist her most crucial thing that runined the human album was song selection, human is a great album but a few more up tempo songs would have been better, all the unreleased material was bangers and just dont know why some of them did not make the cut, i know b can make a come back because her songs are fire and she has got the best voice out there
i hope he aint do that to make bey and rih shine more while she play the background position
UHM.. did a pack of wild cheetahs attack her pants???
Jay Z ushered in (no pun intended) Kanye, NeYo and Rihanna. Three of the biggest names in the music industry today.
Huuuuh Naaaah Kanye is on top mainly cause of his own hard work....dude was a good producer and wanted to rap and Jay didn't even wanna sign that *** and Dawged Kanye......Neyo pretty much hustled on his own too, only person he really helped out was Rihanna and that's mostly cause the label been pushing her album for the past 2 years......
brandy look like she has some strong knees..mmhmm
good look !
My Identity Is Top Secret Folks !
@antidumb I can't stand Ray J either. He's trying to be someone he's not. I watch the majority of the black I LOVE shows on VH1, but I don't watch his. He makes me so sick. I wish his parents would explain to him that it's okay to be yourself.....he's prob boring, but it's okay.
What the hell she go on. Those jeans are a mess and she reminds me of a real life Little Debbie Moon Pie!
I'm not saying I agree with this trend but talent means nothing anymore and lets face it, Brandy ain't high yella, she aint got no shape, her weaves don't go with her face, she just ain't one of the pretty girls who can make it off their looks. She's not an Ashanti, Beyonce, Rihanna, Aaliyah (RIP),or even a Ciara.
But what Brandy does have going for her is longevity. She's one of the original R&B Princesses, really the first to make a splash since the early days of Whitney Houston, so I will be happy to see her come back with some hits and really get her crown back.
ALL HAIL TO PRINCESS BRANDY.
WAKE THE HELL UP PEOPLE. BRANDYS' CAREER STALLED BECAUSE SHE DON'T HAVE THAT LOOK. STOP TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT OR MAKE IT MORE THAN WHAT IT WAS, STOP BLAMING THE INDUSTRY, STOP BLAMING MANAGEMENT AND MARKETING. SHE AIN'T GOT THAT LOOK OF A PERSON WHO IS 1/4 WHITE. AND YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
Great. I love Brandy's music
Why even have those jeans on?? Just wear daisy dukes
songs by brandy to check out
bring it back
doesnt really matters
feel so good
what have you done for me
throw it all away
all hot unreleased songs
Choppers Suit said that Jay-Z needs to relax and coll out wit Beyonce before he has to hit that... I will put the suit on that Goddess...
See Choppers Suit and Beyonce in action @ www.choppercitysuit.com
Brandy is very talented. Those 2 together should be a good look. Her and Kanye were cool so she just needs that breath of fresh air, a hot dope sound and someone who is going to ride with her as far as the beats. She got it.
I've loved every last one of Brandy's CDs.....UNTIL this latest one! WTF! I hope Jay wasn't responsible for that ***. Not one banger on the whole CD, not ONE. She spent all that time in the studio to come up with THAT? Why Brandy...why?!
thats a good look, the jeans ^^^^^ not so much
Hate the jeans in the pic, but love me some Brandy!
She does need someone to get her groove back...Make her burn those jeans 1st !!!
She needs it.
Jay can't make Brandy HOTT she needs to stay the hell away from Rodney Jerkins productions b/c apparently he doesn't have her best interest at heart. SHe needs to hook up with another producer and good songwriter like NEYO
Brandy's on the list of the top 25 child stars of all time. I think she's the only black person on there. Jaleel White might be on there. But I'm not positive.
Rodney and Brandy made a classic album togeter, that people to bump this day in Never Say Never. Although Rodney had done other projects before that, Brandy gave his career and huge boost. He got so much press for that album, created a sound with her then gave it other artist he worked with. Of course, from his point, he found something that worked and went with it, from her point, she didn't appreciate it. They got back together for Human and he has some nice records on this, but I agree that there could've been better song selection.
Rodney still has an amazing songwriter in LaShawn Daniels and he and his brother Fred also produce and writer so she really didn't need a Neyo to write for her. Aritst record over 40 songs(many times as much as 60) so the song selection probably should've been different.
Now, for the next record, Neyo could get on it and other great songwriters and producers. She could still have Rodney on there though.
SHE NEEDS SOMEONE WHO PROMO HER. THE LAST 2 ALBUMS SUCKED MAINLY DUE TO LACK OF PR.. HEY, ANYONE IS BETTER THAN THAT DOUCHE BAG MATHEW KNOWLES!!
I'm glad that Brandy is trying to come back however if she does I for one will not be crediting Jay-Z for it.When will people realize that alot of these stars who claim to be buisness men and women really are'nt.Jay-z like all these other celebs/wanna be business men just have alot of intelligent people working for them.Jay-z did'nt discover Rhianna or Kanye he had some smart people working for him that put him on with Rhi and Ye and then he got all the credit for it while the people who actually did discover them are just happy to get paid.Quite simply Jay-z like many other artist most likely aint that bright. smart people work for him and tell him what moves to make and he does it and when it turns out to be a good business venture he gets to take the credit.Those smart people get paid to help him make money and they get paid more so he can pretend it was all his idea.
EXACTLY!!! LIKE THE INTERN WHO ACTUALLY DISCOVERED EMINEM NOT DR. DRE. AND WHERE IS THAT INTERN NOW?? HE DIDNT GET ANY MONEY, CREDITS, ROYALTIES, ETC. SMH.
@Bpositive, trixie,Red Dragon and the rest of the pitiful cronies.
Dayum what does this post have to do with Beyonce? how can she be both overexposed and irrelevant? pick one loser!
How about u wrap ur feeble mind around the concept that this decision has nothing to do with Beyonce, adn seeing as how her profits equaled his this year, I sincerely doubt she's "losing" him money! ***!
as far as this move I don't really know how much of a big seller Brandy still is, Im not really into her music.
I like Brandy but is anyone seriously interested in another Brady CD?
