Jay-Z ends feud with former mentor Jaz-O, signs him to Roc Nation

Before Jay-Z was a billionaire, he was taken under the wing of Jaz-O, who notably featured him on his 1990 song “The Originator.” Jay kept collaborating with Jaz as he got famous on his own, but the two had a fallout in 2002 and stopped speaking for years. That is, until they met up last year. It looks like they’ve continued to smooth things out, as Jay then signed Jaz-O to Roc Nation. OnSmash reports:

Last year, JAY-Z and Jaz-O were spotted reuniting for the first time in nearly 20 years. Since having a fallout in 2002, the two had issues that unfortunately became public. However, the Marcy Product duo have made their reunion official this year, as Jigga has inked Jaz to a distribution deal.

The announcement was made back in April on Big Jaz’s gram page, and was brought to our attention through a person on staff. Under the deal, Jaz’s Kingz Kounty Media Group will be getting Equity Distribution from the imprint, which we’re assuming will be opening doors for him outside of the music industry.

Jaz mentioned that he has a new project coming soon, and it looks like he might be planning shows too. Stay tuned.
