Update: Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 Goes To Atlantic, Roc Nation Goes To Epic

After news broke last week that Jay-Z has been speaking to both Warner and Sony since leaving Def Jam Recordings, it seems as if the Brooklyn MC has found a new home. Actually it looks like he found two.

MTV News has confirmed that Jay’s new album, The Blueprint 3, will be coming out on the 8th anniversary of his original multi-platinum selling Blueprint. Rumored to hit shelves on September 11, the disc will be on Atlantic Records, which falls under his past partners Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles’ Waner Music Group company.

According to Billboard, Blueprint will also be distributed through Roc Nation and a formal announcement of the deal will take place at this Sunday’s (June 7) Summer Jam concert in New Jersey presented by Hot 97. 

At the same time HitsDailyDouble reports that, while not officially revealed yet, Hov has decided to bring his Live Nation label, Roc Nation, to Sony. Billboard says the imprint will be distributed through Epic. – Elan Mancini
