Recap Of Jay-Z’s Tenure As President Of Def Jam

So we know by now Jay-Z is no longer President of Def Jam. So now when some of these artists are going to flop AGAIN, who are they going to blame???

MTV had an article about who might fill his shoes, rumors are that Jermaine Dupri, Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond or Damon Dash & they made a list of other potential candidates, along with a few looooong shots, who could land the coveted Def Jam presidency

RealTalkNY recaps Jay-Z’s tenure as President of Def Jam. Featuring clips from LL Cool J, Beanie Sigel, Joe Budden, Jadakiss, and Redman. From the mishaps to the accomplishments...

"album sales aren’t no where near what they used to be and no amount of promotion can change that. Thats not Jay-Z’s fault. The artist’s themselves have to be also held accountable for their projects. Get on your own grind and promote yourself if you feel the label isn’t. Also some of these artists have to be honest with themselves in terms of dropping albums and the timing of dropping albums. As much as we love LL Cool J in the Hip Hop community how many people honestly are sitting around saying “damn I can’t wait for that new LL album”???…..In all honesty who really was checking for a Beanie Sigel or Freeway album at this time of the year????….Well I could go on and on but Jigga did his thing while he had the position and now that he’s not the President of Def Jam anymore I wonder who the artists are gonna blame now when their albums brick in sales" ..i couldn't have said it better.
