Will Smith’s 9-Year Old Daughter, Willow Signs to Roc Nation

Source: AllHipHop

Recently Jay-Z went on air with Ryan Seacrest to confirm that he had indeed signed the young Willow Smith to a deal with Roc Nation. You can check out the video above to see how that went.

Now I’m just tripping out on how successful the Smith family is. You have the parents Will and Jada, we all know what they’re about. Then you have the kids Jaden and Willow who both have shared the big screen with their father. Jaden in “The Pursuit of Happyness” and Willow in “I Am Legend“. Also Will’s oldest son Trey, who doesn’t really get as much shine as his younger siblings is a Wide Receiver for Oaks Christian HS Football team.

Below you can check out Willow’s song “Whip My Hair” which has generated a lot of buzz online already. Not bad, sounds like something you’d hear from Rihanna or someone like that. Sure doesn’t sound like a 9-year old.

J.Cole – Higher x The Last Stretch

A bit late on posting these two tracks. But for those of you that may have missed it, here you go.

Roc Nation’s first signee J.Cole has been doing it big as of late. From being on magazine covers to performing at last week’s Power House in Cali.

If you don’t know who J.Cole is by now, you should get familiar.
