M.I.A. Leaves Roc Nation
Published Dec 31, 2013Roc Nation recently added Grimes to its management roster, but now it has lost a major client, as shit-disturbing pop singer M.I.A. has severed her ties with Jay Z's company.
Today (December 31), M.I.A. tweeted, "2013 i dlted old tweet to bring u this. im leaving @RocNation . Thank to everyone who supported the M.I.A #MATANGI LP. HAPPY NEW YEAR | 2014."
As of press time, Roc Nation hasn't issued a statement on the matter, and M.I.A. is still listed as an active roster member on the company's website.
M.I.A. signed a management deal with Roc Nation in May 2012. Since then, she's had a bit of a rocky run, as she clashed with Interscope over the delays surrounding her album Matangi, warred with the NFL over her Superbowl middle finger, and appeared to side with director Steve Loveridge when he faced off against Roc Nation regarding his M.I.A. documentary.
