There’s been a lot changes within the major hip-hop record labels in 2012. Earlier in the year, we saw Joie Manda leave Warner to take the position as President of Def Jam, and then Lyor Cohen resigned as chairman of Warner Music. And mostly recently, Warner’s prez Todd Moscowitz also left, but he has not yet announced his next move. Right now, the rumor is churning with bits of what Lyor and Todd may do next, but there’s also another interesting name mentioned in the mix: Irv Gotti. Yes, the mastermind behind Murda Inc, and the young hustler who campaigned for DMX, Jay and Ja in those early Def Jam days. According to the NY Post, Gotti maybe joining Cohen to form a new management company. We hear that they have been quietly talking to Kanye West and Drake as clients.
Check out a recent photo of Irv and Drake together and a few classic Murda Inc Moments after the jump…
Fun Fact: Lyor Cohen was in Irv Gotti’s wedding party back in the day….along with drug lord Kenneth “Supreme” Mcgriff.
