Roc Nation is an American entertainment agency founded by musician and entrepreneur Jay-Z in 2009. The partnership with Buju Banton was declared on November 22, 2019, and marked by the release of their new video for the song “Steppa.”
Not much about the concert is out other than him being confirmed for the end of year party.
Banton’s illustrious career, which dates back to the late 1980s, includes breaking multiple sales and chart records in Jamaica and collaborating with U.S. stars such as John Legend, DJ Khaled, and Fat Joe.
