Jay-Z Exclusives on Thumbplay

jayz.jpgThumbplay has scored a deal with Universal Music Group that gives it exclusive rights to distribute ringtones and other mobile content from rapper Jay-Z, for a limited time.

Wireless Week reports that the content, which is exclusive to Thumbplay through mid-August, comes from 10 songs that have never before been offered on a mobile platform.

That Thumbplay managed to get a UMG exclusive isn’t too surprising; Thumbplay has been distributing music ringtones from UMG’s vast artist roster for more than two years.
