Jay-Z Launches New Label With European Producers Stargate
Jay-Z has reportedly launched a new label, adding to his long list of businesses. This one is called StarRoc and was formed with producers Stargate.
According to overseas media, Stargate is a Norwegian duo consisting of Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel S. Eriksen, both of which have produced for several superstar artists, specifically crafting Beyonce’s hit “Irreplaceable” and Ne-Yo’s “So Sick.”
Reports indicate that the producer duo have relocated their studio to Jay-Z’s Manhattan-based Roc The Mic studios.
Specifics surrounding the deals were unknown at press time, nor do we know who the first artists to come out on the new venture will be either.
Jay-Z, in the meanwhile, is still working on his next solo album, The Blueprint 3, due out before the end of the year. It is said to be his last record under Def Jam, before he begins recording under Live Nation.
