News: Irv Gotti Working With Lyor Cohen On New Management Company
The NY Post indicated from a music insider that the duo are already working on advising two of hip-hop’s highest profile clients, rappers Drake, and Kanye West.
Cohen, who left Warner Music Group in September and previously worked for Island Def Jam, has a long working history with Irv Gotti. The Inc, which is Gotti’s label, was partially owned by Def Jam.
The Inc produced hit albums for artist such as Ja Rule, and Ashanti, while Irv Gotti produced hits for artist like DMX, Jay-Z, and an album for “A Thousand Miles” singer, Vaness Carlton.
In 2005, Gotti and his bother Chris were indicted for allegedly helping drug king pin Kenneth ‘Supreme” McGriff launder money as part of a high-end drug ring. Both Irv and Chris Gotti were later acquitted of the charges.
The details of the unnamed management company are scarce, however this collaboration with Cohen could be Gotti’s greatest come back since the decline of his career, despite being featured in a hit reality show series, “Gotti’s Way”.
