“IS IT JUST ME” or It’s been a rough month. Blac Youngsta got arrested for shooting up Young Dolph’s truck; then he turned around and told on his self by saying Dolph snitched on him! We gonna unwrap that later. Funk Flex been disrespecting Pac heavy, 50 yr old Wack 100 was looking wack as hell looking for a fade from Treach! ON THE Gram!!! and now Khaled wants to run Epic Records. WHEN WILL THE F’CKERY END!!!!
Khaled is my man 50 grand, but it’s no way I would trust him in running a major label let alone the storied Epic. He can A&R the sh’t out of an album but running Epic is laughable. Before anyone jump on me and call me a hater. Khaled’s label never produced any super stars; let alone sold a ton of records! Lil Wayne have a better track record than him. let’s do some math because like they say, numbers never lie.
Khaled started We The Best in 2008 with Def Jam where he was an A&R. From there he took his label to Cash Money and now Epic. Through out that period, He dropped several solo albums filled with hits on artist from other labels. The whole time he had artist signed to his label, none of them blew up or was ever featured on his hit singles. Can anyone name a We The Best artist besides Ace Hood who by the way wants off the label? Khaled have a hit single as we speak with non We The Best Artist!
Here’s the punch line. Khaled thinks he can do a better job than Sylvia Rhone! She started East/West records. It lost $15m the first year then made $100m the second year. She then got promoted to become the CEO of Elektra Records. She had rock bands going multi platinum, Busta Rymes went platinum with all his albums till he threw his self out the window and left her. Missy Elliot went multi platinum every time she dropped an album as well as the artists she signed. Fabolose had a platinum run & his best years and sales with her. When Sylvia left to go Universal Motown, Cash Money was being Distributed under her watch. You’re welcome Lil Wayne and Cash Money. Sylvia Rhone is a legend and she don’t loose. She made sure Camilla Cabello have a number 1 hit and 2 award performances at the BBMA’s. That’s simple math if you ask me.
Who’s the better CEO: Khaled over 350k sold vs Sylvia Rhone over 300m sold.
The audacity of Khaled! You would think he had a run like Puff! Everybody that was signed to Bad Boy was multi-platinum. He made you were a house hold name. Bad Boy sold over 100 million records. If anything Diddy should be in that conversation! You may say yeah but that happened years ago or that was back in the 90’s. Let me ask you this. Would you hire me to run Apple because I made myself hot and I’m feeling myself? Or would you hire someone who use to run Amazon or Microsoft who have a proven record; even if it was 8,10. or 15 years ago?
One last thing Dj Khaled, if I hear you snapchat and yell ” DID I GET THE CEO SPOT YET!!!!” I swear I will unfollow you.
I would’ve put the pictures of Khaled’s exsisting artist but I didn’t want to confuse you. For sure you would be thinking, who are these random dudes?
