There is a reason people forever talk about Roc-A-Fella Records, and that dynasty. Led by Jay Z and Dame Dash, Roc-A-Fella became a major force in the game. Because of their success, almost every rapper comes in the game looking to partner with a major label, and not sign.
At one point, Roc-A-Fella was so big, the members of the label had their own labels. State Property housed the Philly artists and was led by Beanie Sigel and Freeway. However, when the split happened, they ended up lost in the shuffle.
Lately, a lot of former Roc-A-Fella members have shown up at the offices of Roc Nation. Last year, Memphis Bleek launched a label there, signing Manolo Rose, and Jim Jones, formerly of Diplomat/Roc-A-Fella, has signed there. Now, this Freeway photo with Jay Z on his Instagram at the Roc Nation offices has people talking.
