Score another win for the Jigga Man, this time in Hollywood. Jay Z has inked a two-year deal with The Weinstein Company (WTC) to develop projects for film and television. 

WTC will have first dibs on signing scripted and unscripted projects that Hova brings to the table. Reportedly the Hip-Hop mogul already has projects in the works that will be revealed shortly.

“I’m excited to tell stories from real-life prophets who, through their struggles, have changed the world for the better and others whose stories are filled with fantasy and delight,” said Jay Z in a statement via The Hollywood Reporter. “Harvey and David are visionaries, both of whom have done this time and time again. I’m already passionate about what we currently have in the pipeline, and I’m looking forward to discovering others.”

Some of the film credits on Jay Z’s resume include Chris Rock’s Top Five (co-producer) and Annie (producer). And let’s not forget Paid In Full and Streets Is Watching as a producer and Made In America as an executive producer.
