Rumors! Big News Update Coming Up This Weekend!

To start off this update: Rumors on the internet say that is a country label and not the label that bought the Death Row masters. Let's get some things clear. The Global Music Group that bought the Death Row masters is a label for many genres: from country to rap and from rap to pop. GMG has a distribution deal with Universal. So yes, it is also a country label.

Secondly, this weekend there will be a big news update with lots of information - as well as exclusive pictures from the release party - right here on this page. You do not want to miss this! Stay tuned!

GMGBLOG would like to introduce you to Real Talk, the hot new artist from GMG CANADA.

Real Talk was born in Hollywood (Southern California), but raised in Northern California (Sacramento to the Bay Area).In his teen's he made DJ mixed tapes for family and friends, as he got better, the music got hotter. So he went from DJ to Rapper. He also has singing ability due to having a church background which it makes his music more listenable with R&B appeal, and makes him a solo artist capable of commanding crowds of whatever depth with his collage of rap styles. Real Talk uses where he grew up in the hard city area known as 5th Street Brick in Seavy Circle also known as the projects. His families had a large main house in another hard are notoriously named "The P" (known as Oak Park).

MaddHatter is MaddPadd's producer and CEO. Real Talk and the mogul are friends, together they offer chemistry, and chemistry between artist and producers sells lots of records. Real Talk has always been a business man, and he put his business with MaddPadd Productions, LAKIDD Entertainment and the Street Structure Team, and they made him one of what the best has to offer unsigned "Pretty good for a Latin boy huh?".He sells his CD's out of the trunk and makes his living, by giving the crowd what they want by coming original and not bowing to any stereo types. He rarely listens to the radio or other artist's, but some of his favorites include: Busta Rhymes,E-40, Nelly, Ludacris, Mac Dre (one of his personal friends till he passed), Trick Daddy, Petey Pablo, and LiL John.

Death Row Records Calling Mobile Home?

I stumbled across a new article about GMG. Check it out!

While rap music mogul Suge Knight was watching his lucrative record company, Death Row Records, financial slip away, local performers continued to file into Jada Entertainment... a small, state of the art recording studio on Mobile's Dauphin Street. Over the past few years, this studio on Dauphin Street has been the home to mostly regional artists with marginal success. But if the owners of a new music label have their way, they say this could be the home of the number one independent music label in the world. And they plan to do it with what once was... Death Row records!

"We've got media flying in from New York, LA... it's gonna be a big ta-do," says Roland Turner.

He and Mike Wilson were both born in Mobile and have been part of it's music scene for the past 20 years. And now they find themselves and their company the owners of the old Death Row Record catalog. Next week, they plan to reunite many of those artist right here in Mobile, as the latest recording artists of Global Music Group.

"A lot of the old rappers that was on the label, Corrupt, Daz Dillinger, Crooked I, they're flying in..."

Global Music sees opportunity in the former Death Row Artists, creating new music to go with the old Death Row catalog, which alone is worth millions of dollars. But in MObile, Alabama? Not LA? New York? London? Roland uses R & B artist Mark Morrison as an example.

"Mark can record his album in the UK, zip it, send it right here, we can mix and master here, any featured artist when can pit it on right here, we can send it to Los Angeles, anything can be done and we can still be based outta here. 10 years ago it would have been impossible."

And as for the former label's famous violent past? Wilson acknowledges it's part of the image... but not the business, says Mike Wilson.

"We have no interest in those kinds of people.We don't want them part of our business."
A business that, if all goes to their plans, will make Mobile home to a worldwide music giant. On Dauphin Street, Here's Darwin, NBC 15 News.

The record label launch event will include a press conference and exclusive performances by the labels slew of new artists.

Global Music Group became headline news earlier this year, when they purchased the rights to Death Row Records, after a judge ordered founder Suge Knight to auction off all of the labels assets.

With a line-up that includes British R&B sensation Mark Morrison, who topped the charts across the globe with “Return Of The Mack”, and Tika Sumpter, the popular actress from daytime television hit, One Life to Live, who was once signed to Universal Records as the femme fatale duo Twise.

Death Row Assets in Limbo, New Lawsuit Emerges

Venture capitalist Ron Goldberg officially filed suit on Tuesday (September 30) against several former business partners, alleging they conspired with new Death Row owners Global Music Group to cut him out of the winning June $24 million dollar bid.

In the lawsuit, Goldberg claims that several investors he recruited, including the financing institution MicroBanc, LLC, conspired with other “unknown parties” to close the deal without his knowledge.

Death Row’s valuable back catalogue went to auction this past summer due to founder Suge Knight filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2006.

Knight’s bankruptcy was primarily the result of losing a $100 million dollar lawsuit to Lydia Harris, who successfully argued she and her husband financed the company’s 1991 launch.

In August, Mediatechnics Corporation, the parent company of three subsidiary Corporations, each with their own professional management team with extensive backgrounds in finance, manufacturing, marketing and distribution, merged with Global Music Group, to provide them with the funds needed to complete the acquisition.

Still, with a new roster that includes former Atlantic Records singer Mark Morrison, the hotly contested acquisition is considered a major win for Global Music Group and Anthony Marotta, the company's President.

Global Music Group retain the rights to Death Row Records entire back catalogue of albums, videos, and unreleased tracks from Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur, Tha Dogg Pound, The Lady of Rage, and others.

To date, the fallen label giant has sold close to 50 million records worldwide and generated over $750 million in revenue.
