If you haven’t learned by now, Jay Z is not a businessman, he’s a business, man! He’s expanding his empire once again by taking the leap into television and film. After working on films like “Annie” and “The Great Gatsby,” Jay Z has officially inked his own deal Weinstein Company.
Jay Z’s deal will focus on creating both scripted and unscripted television and film. “I’m excited to tell stories from real-life prophets, whom through their struggles have changed the world for the better, and others whose stories are filled with fantasy and delight,” Jay Z shared in a statement. “Harvey and David [Weinstein] are visionaries both of whom have done this time and time again. I’m already passionate about what we currently have in the pipeline and I’m looking forward to discovering others.”
While it is unsure when we’ll get to see the exclusive content created by Jigga man, but Weinstein is as equally excited:
“Having known Jay on a personal level for many years we are thrilled by the opportunity to expand our relationship,” Weinstein offered in a statement. “Jay’s ability to influence entertainment and pop culture has gone well beyond music for many years. He approaches every aspect of his career with both determination and effortlessness, making him one of the leading power players in entertainment history. We already have some exceptional projects in the works and are excited to see what more is to come.”
