Throughout her career, Beyonce has been under the guidance of her father, Matthew Knowles. Once Knowles discovered the talent his dauther possessed, he gave up his corporate job in order to become a record executive. Through her success with Destiny's Child, Matthew Knowles built a small empire.

But, ever since Destiny Child's 2005 breakup, the empire has been crumbling. First, Beyonce left his Music World record label, doing direct business with Columbia Records. Next, the other members of Destiny's Child left his label. Recently, Kelly Rowland was the final Destiny's Child artist to leave Music World.

Ever since she made her relationship with Jay-Z public, there have been questions of how long it would take Beyonce to become one of his artists. Before Jay-Z left Roc-A-Fella Records, there were rumors stating Beyonce would join her boyfriend at Def Jam. But, when Jay-Z created Roc Nation and partnered with Sony for distribution, it seemed as if Beyonce would soon make a move.

Outside of simply being a record label, Roc Nation is also a management company. Through the management section of the company, Roc Nation is behind Rihanna, Ne-Yo, and many other chart-topping artists in the game. With Beyonce leaving her father's Music World Entertainment, is it possible she will soon be setting up shop with Jay-Z and his Roc Nation?
