Sources tell TMZ Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter is considering investing in the company. The Hip Hop mogul is reportedly connecting with other investors to potentially purchase Weinstein’s 23% interest.
Jay partnered with Weinstein to produce Spike’s The Kalief Browder Story. They were also working on a documentary about Trayvon Martin based on the book written by the slain teenager’s parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.
“We’ve know each other socially and we’ve always talked about doing something together. I think we understand each other,” said Weinstein about Carter in April. “People look at Jay Z and they don’t say, ‘That’s a well-read guy,’ and people look at me and think the same thing, but we’re both extremely well-read. That’s the surprise of the whole thing, and it’s what makes it work. He’s one of the most brilliant men I know.”
