The new year will be off to a an epic start for music mogul Young Jeezy, who announced his new position as Senior Vice President of A&R at Atlantic Records this past summer.
Jeezy announces his new venture, CTE World/Atlantic Records. The imprint is dedicated to the commitment of finding, developing and launching the careers of new talent on a worldwide platform.
When asked today about the split between himself and former CTE affiliate Freddie Gibbs, he replied, “Freddie is a talented artist and I decided that it’s time to press reset on my career and business ventures. I have no doubt that Freddie will go on to be everything I believe he can be, and I wish him the best in his career.”
The new imprint will function under Young Jeezy’s direction in association with Atlantic Records chairman, Craig Kallman.
Jeezy says, “This is a fresh start for the CTE brand as we re-launch it. This is why I chose to wipe the slate clean and create an outlet to support and nurture new artists to the best of my ability.”
