Jay-Z is shopping a new label called the “Carter Music Group,” but can’t find a home because the asking price is too high, according to published reports.

The MC is seeking a $100 million investment to cover the overhead, development and digital investment, according to the New York Post.

This rumor falls on the heels of Jay-Z announcing a partnership with the newly formed Translation Advertising company and it’s owner, urban marketing businessman Steve Stoute.

A spokesperson for Jay-Z had no comment at deadline.

Jay-Z left his position as Def Jam’s president last December, but MC is still signed to Def Jam Records as an artist.
