Brooklyn Johnny Inks Joint Venture Label With RCA Records
Music industry power player Brooklyn Johnny levels up yet again. On Nov. 13, he entered into an exclusive partnership with RCA Records for a new joint venture label by the name of District 18 Entertainment.
As the CEO of the new label, Johnny will help put on talented new artists. For the last two years, Johnny has helped develop the careers of current rap stars, including Cardi B and Kodak Black, two rappers he helped bring to Atlantic Records.
With years of success in the books, Johnny is excited to team up with RCA Chairman Peter Edge and President of RCA Urban Music Mark Pitts.
"I'm looking forward to rapidly pushing the culture forward with this new venture," Johnny said in a statement. "Peter Edge and Mark Pitts have both been great supporters of me for quite some time, so this partnership was natural. District 18 Entertainment will be a destination for the next generation of superstars. Stay tuned."
Chairman Edge also shared that he is looking forward to this new business venture. "Brooklyn Johnny has established as a major force in hip-hop by elevating the careers of many artists with his creative vision, passion and ambition," he said. "His past accomplishments and unique approach to finding and developing young talent is what makes him distinctly standout from others. He will bring fresh ideas and talent to the RCA family through District 18 Entertainment and we're looking forward to a successful partnership."
