M.I.A. Signs to Roc Nation Management


M.I.A. has always been a rock star, but now it’s official. The “Paper Planes” rapper has inked a management deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

The announcement was made today on Roc Nation’s website. She joins a roster that includes Rihanna, Wale, Shakira, Santigold, Ester Dean, Meek Mill, and Melanie Fiona.

Rihanna welcomed her to the family, tweeting, “welcome home MIA.”

M.I.A.’s fourth album Matangi is due this fall on Interscope Records. She is also readying a remix to her single “Bad Girls” featuring Missy Elliott, Azealia Banks, and Rye Rye.

    @TopShelf, Hate to say it, but I agree.

    @Nina, Agree completely. I swear when santogold/santigold came out, her style had similarities to MIA. I reckon MIA will get success out of this anyhow. I’m just looking forward to Matangi

    @INCAS, That “style”they had in common was Diplo.Unfortunately,without him she’s just a provocateur saying nothing -shame!


    INCAS Reply:

    @Righteous, were MIA and diplo a couple?

    I prefer M.I.A. than Iggy Azealia. I’m a big Nas fan and stil think he’s a better rapper than Jay Z, but you gotta respect Jay Z business moves. He’s really pimping this game.

    Yay M.I.A. & RiRi under the same management can someone say #Danger! Bad girls do it well!

    its official now, shes sold ou


    Ericka Reply:

    I agree… “music” is all about capitalizing and not art it seems. Alot of artists I used to like are selling their souls for the riches. I understand that artists shouldn’t starve, but anything having to do with Jay-Z is evil and corrupt.


  19. Ericka

    Wow, I used to love M.I.A and Santogold… guess they sold their souls to ROC Nation, sad…


  20. I hate mia

    I hate mia. She just wants to be black. Im glad to see others hate her too. And now she had a baby? God, crime willincrease for sure!
