Possibly–at least according to the New York Post:
Jay-Z is about to ink a hugely lucrative deal with Samsung Mobile, sources tell Page Six. The contract is said to be worth as much as $20 million.
One source said, “The eight-figure deal will be inked in the next few weeks, and is the biggest of its kind. You can speculate that he’ll want to develop some kind of new music-streaming service to promote his acts and music on mobile devices.”
Jay-Z is a savvy businessman and he’s got to be a little annoyed at how far Dr. Dre has gone in this space with Beats and the still-in-development Daisy initiative. This should be interesting.
