Pop Star M.I.A. Leaves Jay-Z’s ROC Nation

2013 YouTube Music Awards

M.I.A. ended her relationship with Jay Z’s company Roc Nation and took to Twitter to let her fans know:


The ‘Bad Girls’ star signed a management deal with Roc Nation in 2012 but relations between the two parties are said to have been strained in the past few months.

M.I.A. gave did not give a statement as to what was the cause of her split from the ROC. However, she did advertise for her new team on Twitter, posting: “MIA 4 the people by the people, looking for young people to work in fields of ART production /  MUSIC /MERCH / FILM / WEB / MARKETING SndCV”

We think ROC Nation will be just fine without .M.I.A, Especially when they already have management deals with  Rihanna, Kylie Minogue and Timbaland.
