Chaining Day: 10 Songs That Led To Jeezy Signing With Roc Nation


Hip-Hop recently experienced another free agent transaction and unlike some partnerships in this crazy game, this one made a bankroll of sense.

With just a simple photo-opt, Jeezy formalized his plans to align his CTE imprint with Jay Z’s Roc Nation. The announcement sprouted from thin air but all the variables were present, plain as day.

It’s been nearly two years since The Snowman has released a studio album and he’s openly expressed his disappointment with his label, Def Jam. To pass the time, he’s been appearing on feature on top of feature all the while helping YG and Doughboyz Cashout get their respective careers off the ground.

Jay Z has always had a fond likeness to Jeezy, likening his past in street pharmaceutical facilitation with that of his own. On the music side, the similarities have always been there as well.

Hit the gallery to hear 10 songs that should have made this move happen sooner than yesterday, November 20.

Better late than never. It’s the [Roc] World!
