ROC NATION GETS INTO THE BOOK BIZ

Roc Nation and Random House are teaming on a new publishing partnership, Roc Lit 101. Roc Nation EVP Jana Fleishman will oversee the division with Chris Jackson, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Random House imprint One World books. 

The venture will publish books about music, sports, pop culture, activism and art. Volumes from Lil Uzi Vert, Meek Mill, Fat Joe and Yo Gotti will follow the initial releases, coming out in summer 2021, CC Sabathia’s memoir Till the End and Danyel Smith’s Shine Bright, about black women in American pop music.

“The goal of Roc Lit 101 is to provide a creative outlet for acclaimed wordsmiths and artists to share their visions with new audiences” Fleishman said. “There are so many untold stories and we consider it a true privilege to be able to amplify diverse voices while exploring the uncharted worlds that are about to open to us.”
