Full circle.

Jay-Z has reportedly signed former mentor and collaborator Jaz-O to Roc Nation.

Looks like things have come full circle for the Brooklyn emcees. In 2017, the duo was spotted reuniting for the first time in nearly 20 years since their fallout in 2002.

According to a report in  Onsmash, Jaz inked a distribution deal under Hov’s label. Back in April, Big Jaz made the announcement on Instagram. The deal reportedly stipulates that Jaz’s Kingz Kounty Media Group will be getting Equity Distribution from the imprint.

The public falling out of the duo apparently revolved around Jaz-O having initially declining to sign with Jay during the inception of launched Roc-A-Fella records, citing the $300,000 deal and other grievances.
