Jay Z‘s Roc Nation roster continues to expand, as Hov and company have just inked brother-sister duo, Wardell. The tandem is the children of legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg. Theo and Sasha Spielberg are now scheduled to release their debut album under Roc Nation sometime during 2014. For more on Wardell, you can visit the Roc Nation website now, as the following description can also be seen on the site.

Sasha and Theo are brother and sister. That familiarity and fondness informs the music that they make together, which is at once warm and summery, comfortable and chill as a result of their Los Angeles upbringing. It’s the kind of music you’d expect from two people who grew up sharing a wall, infused with that particular intimacy that comes with a life spent knowing each other. And while they draw from a wide range of influences , they have managed to create a sound that is wholly their own. Having released the single “Opossum” to great acclaim, including a feature on NPR as Song of the Day, Wardell is hard at work on their debut album, which will come out in 2014.

Is this preferential treatment or a good move for Jay and the Roc? Let us know in the comment section underneath.
