🎉 Biggest moment of my career!!!🎉🙌🏾 I can finally announce I’m the newest member of ROC Nation! This deal is for Management, Film and TV as well as my own Record Label. I look forward to signing my first artist in 2019 on top of releasing my feature film and new TV shows. Thank you so much to @thebullitts for making this deal happen and to the rest of @rocnation for believing in me. For everyone who’s been supporting me thank you! You are responsible for getting me to this point.

He dropped so many gems on me I literally feel like I’m ready to take over the world!! It truly was a life changing experience and made me know with hard work consistency and faith anything in life is possible. The hard work starts now!!#GodsPlan 🙏🏾 P.S Jays house is like nothing I’ve ever seen I told him one day I will have a home like this and he agreed 🙂 #rocnation

Rapman, the creator behind Shiro Story, has revealed that he has signed a deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

According to Rapman’s announcement the deal includes management, film, TV and his own record label. He will also be signing his first artist in 2019.

“For everyone who’s been supporting me thank you! You are responsible for getting me to this point.

The gritty popular rap series, Shiro’s Story has earned over 15 million views and features appearances from UK raps biggest stars, such as Konan and Headie One. Spawning the bright talent of Jovian Wade and Percelle Ascott, Shiro Story is inspired by real life events. The YouTube trilogy is a story of “songs not scripts” and a reflection of modern London life.

Rapman’s deal is big news for the culture. It will be interesting to see what kind of stories – particularly our stories – He will be able to create and share, when backed by the same label that has supported the likes of Rihanna and J.Cole. More investment into Rapman could force mainstream media to finally take a look into the type of stories that Rapman tells, and open up a new door of possibilities to other budding film makers.

Congrats Rapman!
