Legendary Music Executive Out at Epic Records

L.A. Reid, one of the top music executives of of our generation, is no longer CEO of Sony-owned Epic Records. Sylvia Rhone, president of Epic Records, is still in her position as of this newsletter though there are rumors that Epic Records could be closing altogether. This would impact a host of the hottest music artists out right now – Future, DJ Khaled, and Meghan Trainor.

While there are not many black faces at the top of stalwart music labels, executives like Jay Brown and Top Dawg make waves in the industry with much smaller operations. Then there’s Chance the Rapper who is mapping a route for independent artists to kill the game on their own. While this transformation continues, let’s keep an eye out for what L.A. Reid does next.
