    I think this is one of the problems recording labels always face in the music industry as contractual issues come and go and partners looks to explore opportunities. According to, reviews about customwritings com, i think for Roc Nation to survive is depended on how quick they are able to sort our investors and partners that would promote the label as the current contract they had is running to an end. Most of the artist under them would be feeling jittery as we speak which is not comforting at all.
