(AllHipHop News) Platinum rapper and music mogul Jay-Z just signed his Roc Nation label to a worldwide publishing administration agreement with Warner Music Group’s Warner/Chappell Music.

The #1  music publishing company will immediately have the rights to all of Jay-Z’s future projects and his music dating back to 2008 which includes The Blueprint 3 and Watch The Throne albums.

The deal will also give Warner/Chappell rights to most of Jay’s entire catalog by the end of 2013. Songs like “Hard Knock Life  (Ghetto Anthem),” “Big Pimpin’,” and “Dirt Off Your Shoulders” will then be administered by W/C.

In a separate deal, all artists signed to Roc Nation’s publishing wing will see their entire catalogs (including future works) transferred to W/C effective immediately. This includes “R.I.P.” singer Rita Ora, rising R&B artist Bridget Kelly, and frequent Meek Mill producer Jahlil Beats.
