Could it be that rap impressario Jay Z is thinking about adding some new creative talent to his Roc-A-Fella stable? If the Diary’s spies have got it right, it looks as though one of adland’s finest could be about to join the likes of Memphis Bleek, Peedi Peedi and Kanye West at the record label.
The man in question was spotted big pimpin’ with the Jiggaman himself at the launch of BrandAmp – a joint venture between WPP’s GroupM and Universal Music.
That’s right, a blinged out Sir Martin Sorrell replaced Beyonc?n Jay-Z’s arm at the do, and who knows what may come of it.
Had the Diary been able to contact him, it feels sure WPP ceo Sir Martin would have commented: “I got 99 problems but a pitch ain’t one.”
