Roc Nation



Roc Nation’s NFL partnership for the Super Bowl’s halftime show began in 2019, but the company was especially suited for this year’s rap-heavy extravaganza. Featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar, the show from Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium earned Jay-Z his first Emmy to go along with his 24 Grammys. He should also have a more than passing interest in the next Super Bowl show, when Roc Nation artist Rihanna grabs the spotlight in Phoenix. The rapper-turned-­entrepreneur’s Made In America festival celebrated its 10th anniversary in September and featured the likes of Bad Bunny, Tyler the ­Creator, Jazmine Sullivan and Burna Boy. Lest you think he hung up his mic, Jay-Z is also a ­featured artist on the title track of DJ Khaled’s “God Did,” which is up for multiple Grammys.
