Damon Dash Music Group Partners with Koch Entertainment
After months of public speculation about the future of Damon Dash’s ventures in the recording industry, the former Roc-A-Fella co-CEO has inked an agreement establishing his own Damon Dash Music Group and Koch Records as label partners. Dash created the label along with longtime partner Kareem “Biggs” Burke after a public falling out with Jay-Z left the Brooklyn MC in control of Roc-A-Fella Records, the highly successful label the three partners built from the ground up. According to Koch, the first project to be released through the new partnership will be Dancehall artist Sizzla’s latest, titled The Overstanding. Other artists on the DDMG roster include Southside Queens rapper Grafh and R&B crooner Rell. Koch Records reportedly is the largest and fastest growing independent record label in the U.S.
