Jay-Z is reportedly planning to start his own super-star record label, and plans to sign Janet Jackson and 50 Cent up to it.

The rapper is reportedly also in talks with musicians, including his wife Beyonce Knowles and Jermaine Dupri, according to Mediatakeout.com

The site claims that a "record label insider" said: "Jay-Z approached 50 Cent earlier this year and now he's talking to Janet [Jackson] and Jermaine Dupri.

"It seems like a difficult task to get so many big artists under one roof, but I wouldn't put anything past Jay-Z."

Janet Jackson recently split with her record label Island/Def Jam. 50 Cent's contract with Interscope expires in December.
