(AllHipHop News) A media company has announced they have acquired the rights to two unreleased DMX albums, that will be released nationwide in 2012.
Seven Arts Entertainment has announced that they have acquired the assets of Michery Music, a production company owned by industry vet David Michery.
In addition to producing a variety of platinum albums, Michery has held numerous executive positions at a number of labels including Scotti Bros.
Records, MCA Records and Zoo/BMG.
Michery is also the founder of Breakaway Entertainment and American Music Corporation.
Under terms of the new deal, David Michery will become the CEO of Seven Arts Entertainment, which will release Undisputed, which was acquired in the deal.
“Dave Michery represents a significant addition to Seven Arts’ business, and we are very excited about the revenue and earnings potential of DMX and
Dave’s other music assets,” Seven Arts Entertainment CEO Peter Hoffman said.
The potential revenues to be derived from the DMX albums are very significant.
