Outta There Baby: Lyor Cohen and WMG Part Ways

This is ironic, I was just reading an article slandering Lyor Cohen and several other POWER MOVERS in Music. Find it HERE.

Nonetheless, that guy makes pretty good business decisions and I'm pretty confident he won't be "unemployed" for too long. is watching...

Lyor Cohen, Chairman/CEO of Recorded Music for Warner Music Group, is stepping down from his post effective September 30, the company announced today. He had been at Warner since 2004, beginning as Chairman and CEO, US Recorded Music in March of that year.

In making the announcement, Cohen said, “To all the artists and employees who live and die for the music every day, and who personally sacrifice for the good of the creative process: ‘keep on keepin’ on’ in the tradition of a company that respects and honors the artistic community.”

Len Blavatnik, Chairman and founder of Access Industries, said, “I personally want to thank Lyor for his dedication and contributions to Warner Music. He has been both a business partner and personal friend and I wish him only the best.”

Stephen Cooper, WMG’s CEO, said, “Lyor Cohen has built something very special here. While we understand his desire to move on to his next challenge, the enduring success of our recorded music division will serve as a great testament to the progress we’ve made during Lyor’s time at WMG. We are grateful for Lyor’s contributions, and we wish him the best. I’m confident that given the strength of our talented management team in Recorded Music, we’ll be able to drive further success.”

X-Factor: The Other Woman

Probably not what you’re thinking. I just have a question.

That is usually how these posts and/or write-ups start, right?

Those faithful and unfaithful (we saw your tweet about that other site!); if you have an opinion, we would like to hear back from you.

Here goes nothing…and everything…

Who remembers, early on when mainstream began to embrace Hip-Hop? I do. And this was a special moment for the culture. My man, LL rocked the ill "FUBU" cap and spit "For Us, By Us...on the low" in a GAP commercial. That was huge for the brand, and huge for what we called ours.

LL, thanks for helping to put us on.
