During a concert at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania, Tunechi confirmed his new status. “Is it cool if I just say it?” he asked. “It’s the Roc! You know I’m a member of that team now.” Then, he held up the R-O-C diamond that Jay Z made famous.
Weezy has been pledging allegiance to Jay Z for quite some time. In 2015, Wayne said he signed a “deal” with Jay Z. Later, it seemed to indicate a partnership with TIDAL, not Roc Nation.
Wayne also shouted out the Roc back in November of 2016. “I’m a motherfuckin’ R-O-C millionaire,” he said at the time. “I’m a motherfuckin’ Roc-a-Fella millionaire.” In January, he also said he was repping “YMROC.”
Meanwhile, Wayne’s career hangs in uncertainty due to his quarrels with Birdman. The two are currently in a legal battle over $51 million and Tha Carter V. Weezy’s Jay Z shoutouts have reportedly only exasperated the situation.
