Lil Wayne Says He Signed a Deal With Jay Z

speaks during the 51st Annual Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center on February 8, 2009 in Los Angeles, California.

Update: Lil Wayne’s manager clarified to Billboard that he was referring to his “his new deal as an artist owner with Tidal.”

Lil Wayne’s label struggles took on an interesting new wrinkle Saturday night. While onstage at this year’s KMEL Summer Jam, Weezy made the announcement that he had “just signed a deal with [his] motherf—kin’ idol Jay Z.” It could appear that Wayne is making the logical next step from his Tidal affiliation and heading to Roc Nation, but the exact details of his arrangement remain unclear at this point. As The Fader points out, a fan was fortunately able to capture the brief announcement, which you can watch here.
