Music mogul Jay-Z and hip-hop artist Meek Mill are teaming up in a business deal following the announcement of Mill’s new record label: Dream Chasers. The label is a joint venture with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and marks the beginning of a new chapter for the 32-year-old venturing on the business side of the music industry.
In an interview with “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King, Meek Mill, and Jay-Z open up about why they think it’s important to establish a legacy as entrepreneurs for the next generation of artists.
“The music and culture we create, you know we’ve been giving it away for so long. Which is understandable, you’ve got to start somewhere. You’ve got to clean the floors up before you own the building but we don’t shine shoes anymore,” Jay-Z told King.
Mill has described Jay-Z as a major influence in his life and someone he’s looked up to in more ways than as a fellow artist.
