Disturbing Tha Peace Inks New Long-Term Deal with Def Jam

Disturbing Tha Peace Records, the Atlanta-born imprint founded by Ludacris, has inked a new long term agreement with parent company Island Def Jam. Although details about the new partnership have not been revealed, the announcement puts to rest recent rumors about the label being dropped from the Def Jam roster. “The Atlanta hip-hop scene and the Dirty South movement in general owe more than they can ever repay to Chris,” Def Jam chairman L.A. Reid said in a statement. “Our friendship stretches back more than a decade and I never cease to be amazed at his imagination, creativity, and most of all his outrageous sense of humor. Now, changing business conditions necessitate that we review our respective rosters and focus to ensure that future opportunities and challenges are aggressively achieved. Ludacris has built Disturbing Tha Peace into one of the iconic names in hip-hop, one that will remain an important part of the Island Def Jam family.” DTP is currently headed by Luda and his partners Chaka Zulu and Jeff Dixon.
