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.”

  • mr. undisputed the mogul

    WHOOP DE FUCKING DOO!!!!
    LET’S SEE AN EX-HYPE MAN, WHO ACTS TOUGH & SCRUNCHES UP HIS FACE & YAPS ABOUT “GOONIES” COMES UP WITH “1″ HIT SONG & NOW HE’S A STAR WORTH GIVING A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR DEAL!!!! IT’S NO WONDER THE RECORD BUSINESS’ SALES ARE DOWN FOR THE 7TH STRAIGHT YEAR & 2 YEARS AGO EVERY MAJOR LABEL HAD TO LAY OFF THOUSANDS OF WORKERS!!! WITH DUMBASS BONE HEAD DECISIONS LIKE THAT, IT WONT BE LONG BEFORE YOUR FILING FOR BANKRUPTCY!!! HELL LA REID LOST HIS JOB AT ARISTA FOR OVERSPENDING ON OUTKAST, PINK & OTHER ARTISTS’ WHO ALL WENT ATLEAST 2X PLATINUM!!!! JUSTIFY THIS DECISION. EVERY OTHER WORD OUT OF JENNY & STAN’RUNS MOUTH IS SOMETHING ABOUT JAY-Z. THE 1ST THING OUT THIS LOSERS MOUTH WHEN HE GOT HIS NEW DEAL WAS ” I’M GOING TO BE WORKING WITH RICK RUBIN AS MY BOSS & “HIP HOP” FORMER ROCAFELLA A&R IS DOING MY ALBUMS WITH ME” WHAT YOU THINK JAY-Z IS GONNA THINK ABOUT THAT?! WHAT THE HELL IS THEIR INFATUATION WITH THE MAN??? WHAT WOULD BE IRONIC IS IF JAY LEAVES DEFJAM AS HAD BEEN REPORTED & CAME TO WORK WITH RICK RUBIN AS ALSO BEEN REPORTED. TALK ABOUT AWKWARD FOR MR.”BALLIN” HAVING TO ANSWER TO PRESIDENT CARTER. THEN YOU’LL REALLY HEAR AN ARTIST COMPLAIN ABOUT THE BOSS BEING MORE CONCERNED ABOUT HIS CAREER THAN HIS ARTISTS. PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If I was Jones I’d have stayed at Koch. These indie to major stories never go particularly well unless you’re some kind of pop sensation. The guys that have “hits” but not pop radio hits (top 40, not rap and r n b radio) don’t usually fare well on huge labels.

  • fred

    i guess if he made me money i would call him a superstar too but in reality he is a one hit wonder and i really wouldnt even call it a hit that song was trash! what other song beside that ballin song do know that this dude made!pleeeeze

    Anyone calling Jim Jones a superstar is ridiculous beyond belief. Kind of amazes me that someone would offer him a multi-million dollar deal. It’s cool that he had a hit song, but with the style of music he does I don’t see too many more hits in his future. People are getting tired of that shit.

    Damn you fruit flies can hate. You guys just fuel the theory that blacks are like crabs in a bucket. Instead of being happy that a cat can still make money in rap you just hate. Haters are the reason HIP HOP IS DEAD. Just look at soldier boy if you are older than 15 and you listen to that song SHOOT YOURSELF now thats garbage.

  • Meezy
