RUMOR: Roc-A-Fella Drops Entire Roster?

According to an interview with Philadelphia rapper Peedi Crakk on MediaTakeOut.com, he and the entire State Property family, including Beanie Sigel and Freeway, have been dropped from Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam. Peedi claims that Jay initially scheduled one-on-one meetings with each rapper to talk, but those meetings never happened. Instead, he sent an A&R from Def Jam out to Philly last week to deliver the bad news. “Which was a hoe move, to me. You could tell us some shit like that face to face,” said Peedi. “Niggas like Beanie Sigel and Freeway and Oschino and Sparks and Chris and Neef…they been there for almost 10 years.”

Peedi goes on to say that he’s not 100% sure which other artists were dropped, criptically claiming that “he kept one person.” However, he also says that the A&R who gave them their walking papers said, “There’s no more Roc-A-Fella. Everyone’s free to leave.”

While he could not speak for the other artists, Peedi said that he’s happy about being dropped because he was tired of dealing with his album being delayed. “You won’t hear no Peedi Crakk diss songs,” he says.

      But, what they thought was going to happen when Jay stepped down from Def Jam. He don’t even own roc a fella no more, he was just the president. Don’t nobody remember that the label got sold. I’m sure the people he still wanna fuck wit will get picked up by the new label he get on.

      • kindomcome

        Jay still own Rocafella but he sold rocawear and he still got money so it’s not a problem

  • BIG O

    that shit aint true.these the same niggas who said that def jam was going to drop nas if he aint change the name of his cd.lying ass media takeout.jay is about that paper.but i dont think he would go dirty like that.plus even if peedi did say that he beefing with jay now anyway sohe got a reason to lie

  • k-dub

    LOL, that nigga kept BLEEK

  • chucktown

    dats fucked up JAYZ.. Def jam need too drop Ghostface too.. So dat means Jadakiss and whos dat cat who diss dipset or yeah Tru life been drop too.. lol.. dats fucked up.. Yo Jadakiss, Beanie, and freeway should stay. But the rest off them need too be drop.. G-unit south..

    • stuc

      stfu. ghost is one of the last rappers left putting out quality music on a consistent basis

  • D-tay

    1st bitches!!! With hov’s contract not being renewed over at def jam i could see this from a mile away. Besides philly (east coast rap) is just not doing well with the south dominating everything. It is what it is. Koch is calling!

  • JAY STONE

    This gotta be a joke.

  • Were Read 2 Def

    drop Ghostface? Get the fuck outta here. My guess is that Jay kept Kanye.

  • http://xxlmag.com King Ben

    All that shit talking they do behind his back and in interviews , what do they expect? Jay’s position at Def Jam was as we all know a P.R. move for both J and Def Jam, he did not have enough power to release artist that do not sell. Even if its his own.

  • heebyjeeby

    If he set up 1 on 1 meetings and 4 sum reason they never happen, then how is it a hoe move? He tried to meet. They couldn’t have rolled with Dame, his rep was tarnsihed from playing billy badass for the ROC at the urging of Jay. The industry didn’t want to rock with Dame

  • heebyjeeby

    Besides, Jay don’t own the ROC no more, DefJam owns it—since 04.

  • j-smith

    damn if dis shit tru dets fucked up

  • Jace

    This is great. Now these guys can go try to get a deal with another lable, even though I doubt any of them can. I wonder how many people will even careenough to listen to one of their songs now that they no longer will be attached to Jay-Z. Who will they blame when their albums get pushed back or suck?

    I think the A&R just told Peedi that shit because there dropping him not the other artist’s,because you would have heard atleast one artist say something also.The shit just seems funny to me.Oh yeah Sparks and Oshcino has been off the lable for like 3 years

      SURE FREE AND BEANS HAD GOOD ALBUMS.

      BUT BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF………

      DID YOU REALLY THINK THEY WERE GOING TO SELL,

      IN THIS DAY AND AGE??????

      MORE PROMO MONEY WOULDN’T DO ANYTHING BUT CONVINCE MORE PEOPLE TO DOWNLOAD THE ALBUM.

      THOUGH THEY ARE GOOD ARTISTS, THEY ARE JUST THE KIND OF ARTISTS THAT WILL NEVER REALLY POP IN THE MAINSTREAM.

      THEY WILL ONLY POP AMONGST TRUE HIP-HOP FANS.

      LIKE US. I’M NOT HAPPY TO SAY THAT BUT IT’S TRUE.

  • mason4life/G\

    yo flipbeats you are a dumb fuck, why don’t you stop reading about MASON’s on the internet and go and find a real one and ask him a question, we can speak you know, and if you were smart, you would know that a master mason and a 33rd are totally different, and that nothing is higher than a master mason, so before you speak or try to criticize on something you know nothing about, go and learn about it, once again you are just a cowan, or eavesdropper that is a wanna be or tried and couldn,t be remember 2B1ASK1

    • http://www.myspace.com/valdezent Jay Valdez

      yo mason4life,

      i think u are a stupid fuck, for real. i don’t like to judge people, but u are posing as if masonry is cool or somethin. who the fuck wants to be a mason? what kind of positive impact does masonry really have on society or the world for that matter in the grand scheme of things??

      are u proud to be a devil worshipper, to be doing the white man’s work?? anyway, masonry is circles within circles so what are the chances that u are anywhere close to the inner circle. stupid fucks don’t even know when they are being used. u are just a pawn & u would get more respect if u knew it, at least. but nah, u on here acting as if u better than the next nigga cause u a mason.

      being a mason may get u places that u may not be able get without them, but get somewhere on your own, son…

  • Rizzo

    Not sure if this is true or not but…..
    When it comes to being in any type of music group or label, you can only take it as far as gig by gig. Bottom line, all of them are in a better position than they would have been in if they never signed to the ROC. All good things come to an end, sooner or later. This is a true example of why you cannot get comfortable. You must stay twelve steps ahead of everybody, gotta be proactive. And if this is true then Jay could have handled this better, they do deserve that much.
    Damn, it was all good just a week ago……

    Does Jay even own Roc-A-Fella anymore? Didn’t Universal/Island buy the other half from Dame and Jay?

  • NY1

    Jay is cool as far as I am concerned. Beans talking shit about his man with the enemy in public and he lets him go to find the solution somewhere else………..He could have kept him a prisoner to his label for a decade

    Jay exercised his release clause for his artists. Most executives have this. If an exec leaves, the artists he signed are free to leave. This could be a good thing for the artist.

  • bbeasy11

    this is actually a good thing for all parties really. cd’s don’t sell anymore(check out rolling stone) and especially rap cds since the quality of artist has fallen something serious. it was time for all them niggas to move on, def jam doesn’t market it’s artist like they use to there was a time when damn near everyone on the label went plat except bleek those days are over except bleek’s. u gotta go indy or holla at itunes to sell music nowadays. i mean for most these niggas it’s a good look i wouldn’t wanna have to sit in the studio lookin at jay like damn this nigga damn near 60 and spittin better than my 18yr old ass. Beans,Free,Peedi i know yall got like 3 albums worth of material put something out i’ll listen.

  • mall gees

    yo this is a ho move by jay, beans an the philly dudes held him down when the whole new york was coming at him . another thing thats going to come out is how he stole local philly artist songs and made them over like all i need from the blue print . it was a rapper name qdon song he was killed and his group sold it to jay. people froget the only reason jay was able to be hard was because he knew state prop was not going to let nothing happen to him . he also stole philly swagger .

    Peedi sounds higher than a mf in this interview. Wasn’t sure it was even him? lol Then he’s talking to mediatakeout, damn homie! Wtf? Sparks and Oschino (w/e) aren’t even on the label anymore, have been off for a while now. This doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. One second he says they all got dropped, the next he’s not sure who got dropped, the next he kept one artist (& why wouldn’t he say who it was). And he’s saying the A&R told “we/us”, who were the other artists in the room with him. If this turns out to be false, it’ll be hilarious that peedi went this far to get back at dude.

    JZ hangs with fruity fashion designers on the regular and wears knitted scarves on a daily basis, what else do we need to know ? I’ve bin telling people from day one this cats washed out since before his comeback with kingdom come. He prolly wants rnb chicks and soldier boy pop star hipsters on the roster because that’s what the 12 year old girls are buying, dude needs to hang up his jersey in the music bizz and spend that money and fuck Beyonce and invest with the TI’s he’s fucking his legacy more every day .

    @ Jay Valdez,
    check it out young bro, I can tell by the way you write that you’re still wet behind the ears, I’m not on here trying to school anyone, nor do I think that I am better cuz I’m a mason, I was trying to inform people that if you really want to know about us just ask 1, as for devil worshipping , I see that you are just as clueless as flipbeats, but I understand, if you really knew anything then you know that is furthest from the truth, true not everyone wants to be or can be a mason, the same as trying to be in a frat such as the alpha’s, or kappas, not everyone is built for that, so I respectfully ask you to please read up on stuff before you speak cause to others you sound so ignorant.

  • thecool

    all of yu dont get it, music is a write-off now. Noones making money in that business anymore, unless you’re independent, but even then, how far can one man’s hustling, saturated words take them? These labels are losing more than they are making in most projects. I wouldnt fuck with a roster that arent coming up with the numbers. Jay is fucking with corporate folks now, he’s not seeing cats in an industry thats sinking deeper everyday. He’s making his own moves. Cus u know what, at the end of the day, it aint about being loyal to ur niggas…it aint. friends are friends, but u only have one family and yoself. Even fam acts shady sometimes. Beans has skills, that’s a real kat right there… but how many records is he moving??? Not to mention, Beans over there making videos with dudes getting indicted for money laundering. Jay aint having that! He on a boojee tip now. U never know, that nigga might even run for mayor one day. Look at knucklehead Schwartzenneger.

    JAY-Z is on ‘OPERATION: CORPORATE TAKEOVER’, now. he’s doesn’t need that street dollar, anymore; he’s about the corporate dollar, now! MEMPHIS is in JAY’s will, so he’s o.k. so the artist that JAY kept is KANYE WEST. for 2 reasons…firstly, he’s still selling. secondly, KANYE’s catalogue of beatz!

    think Peedi got released and maybe a couple other people but Kanye and Bleek are still there for sure its no way he let them go. Peedi is right about the music business its not a whole of money out there for marketing and promotion these days, if you cant sell a ringtone, your not really going to get a marketing and promotion push. I know people will say Jay-Z promotes himself but he does not spend hardly any money on promotion most of the people doing the promotion come to him for free. I think he could have handled some artists careers better but I think if you cant produce a hit record then your going to get dropped from your label unless your on Koch. Think about even 50 didnt really sell like he normally does and he had mega promotion with Kanye. Alot of these rappers have to understand if your on a Major and you do 50,000 your first week thats a failure, now is it the artist fault because they didnt get promoted yes and no because that if that single doesnt pop its over and its the artist that makes the records. Its almost a situation where an artist like soulja boy is going to be the standard for hip hop and some of the most great lyrical cats are going to working at Mcdonalds and cant get a deal (joelle ortiz). The worst thing that has ever happened to hip hop is downloading. Think about how many records people like freeway or beanie would have sold if people didnt download. I mean some of it is Jay-Z’s fault but the music business isnt the same as it use to be. Nelly has sold over 15 million album and he dropped a single months ago ask him where his album is?
