Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter said in a statement Monday that he will leave his post as president of Universal Music Group's Def Jam Records label after his contract expires at the end of this year.

Jay-Z will continue as a recording artist for the Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam label, Universal said.

Jay-Z, who was named president of Def Jam in 2005, said it was time for him to "take on new challenges."

Other Jay-Z ventures include his Rocawear clothing line, the 40/40 clubs, part ownership of the New Jersey Nets, a J Hotel project in New York and more.

Q: would any of ya'll like to explain what "Jay-Z," part owner of the Nets means?

HINT HINT: he's a very small, powerless front man to trick idiot black people into giving Jay's ** real ** owner all sorts of public $$$ to build the arena +++.

i'll admit that's a pretty crooked move & way more "gangster" than his insipid record (which both brags & lies about it) but otherwise...

also, oh no!! what's gonna happen to Memphis Bleek?!

fuck OB4CL2, i want a whole Ghost & Beanie collaboration.

This is the best thing that happened to DEF JAM!!!!! Now real artists like Meth, Red, EPMD, LL COOL J and others can get proper due... rather than them wack ass rock niggaz.... In my opinion Jay-z ruined def jam... Promotin all these garbage ass niggaz... respect due to the o.g.'s on the label.... Jay was supposed to make def jam better than worse...
