The new year will be off to a an epic start for music mogul Young Jeezy, who announced his new position as Senior Vice President of A&R at Atlantic Records this past summer. Jeezy announces his new venture, CTE World/Atlantic Records. The imprint is dedicated to the commitment of finding, developing and launching the careers of new talent on a worldwide platform.
When asked today about the split between himself and former CTE affiliate Freddie Gibbs, he replied, “Freddie is a talented artist and I decided that it’s time to press reset on my career and business ventures. I have no doubt that Freddie will go on to be everything I believe he can be, and I wish him the best in his career.”
Jeezy says, “This is a fresh start for the CTE brand as we re-launch it. This is why I chose to wipe the slate clean and create an outlet to support and nurture new artists to the best of my ability.”
Will CTE and MMG be able to get along under the same label? Atlantic should have the MMG & CTE offices next to each other and make it a reality show.
