Koch Records Releases Statement Regarding Jim Jones’ New Deal

jimmy2.jpgYesterday (October 10), Koch Records released a statement regarding Jim Jones’ new deal with Rick Rubin and Columbia Records. As previously reported by Hot 97’s Miss Info, the Dipset Capo signed a multi-million dollar deal with Columbia for his upcoming album and future releases on his Byrdgang Records imprint. Miss Info also reported that Jimmy’s former label, Koch Records, was “broken off nicely” in the deal. Now, however, Koch has released a press release stating Jim’s new deal with Columbia is actually a partnership “of sorts” with Koch and the indie label will “still be involved in marketing and radio promotion for Jones, and participate in revenue streams, while Columbia will oversee all aspects of his campaigns.” Koch Records President, Bob Frank, went on to say, “Jim Jones is a superstar and this arrangement positions him in such a way as to maximize the strengths of the No. 1 independent Koch Records and the most storied and historic label in the history of the record business, Columbia Records.”
