Jay Z's Roc Nation brand continues to expand in all categories. Former Hot97 DJ Cipha Sounds recently announced he will be joining the Roc's management team, which was confirmed by the company's Twitter account. "Excited to welcome @CiphaSounds to the Roc Nation family, where he will be co-managed by @NeilSirni of York-Hill," the post reads. The move comes on the heels of the on-air personality/comedian quitting his post at the storied station after a 17-year stint, in late January.

Sounds will more that likely use his new connects to help expand his career in comedy and acting. He already has a weekly improv comedy show called Take It Personal. XXL recently sat down with Sounds where he revealed some of his upcoming plans. "I'm working on [a TV show]," he said. "All these projects have been in the works. I’ve got two pilots that I’m working on. I’ve got five other scripts ideas I’m working on. I went to L.A. five times last year pitching." As recently reported, Sounds is also working on an improve TV show with Alicia Keys.

Needless to say, the former disk jockey was pumped about his new deal. Check out his excitement, below.
