Google Helps Fund Lyor Cohen’s New Music Company

(AllHipHop News) The has been a shift in the music industry paradigm since piracy financially crippled record labels and forced the inception of 360 deals to make up for lost profits. Former Def Jam Records President Lyor Cohen’s new music company that has been rumored for a year has officially received backing from Google and distribution through Warner Music Distribution.

Billboard reports that Cohen is starting an artist development and label hybrid business that will provide major label-level marketing and distribution while functioning as an independent label. Former president of Warner Bros, Todd Moscowitz and the former Warner Music exec VP Kevin Liles will also be joining Cohen on the label.

Cohen left his position as Chairman/CEO of Warner Music Group last September. It was reported by The New York Post Page Six in December of 2012 that Cohen was not only working on a new music company but also advising Kanye West and was “100 percent in Kanye’s camp.”

The chances of Kanye West joining Cohen’s new music company are mixed as Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label signed a “long-term deal” with Def Jam in June of 2011. However, no Kanye West albums have been released under G.O.O.D. Music and instead only under Def Jam/Rocafella.

    Lyor is a liar and a loser. Your time is up Lyor. What happened to you and Irv managing Kanye and Drake? lmao The lies you use for press are cheap. You’re a filthy overrated piece of shyt. Here you are the big Jew playing ni99a games talking about what you “about to do.” Just do it!!! Truth is you’re not doing anything. You’re irrelevant and your entire fortune came from dumb ni99as who believed you were someone you wasn’t. Fool us once shame on you. Fool us twice shame on us. Go find another group to exploit and pimp you despicable carpetbagger. As for Kevin Liles, don’t that guy ever get tired of holding your cokk when you piss? Sorry azz ni99as. At least both your wives fukked the help. Karma is a bytch ain’t it? How did it feel knowing your driver, a big black buck was knocking the bottom out of your wife’s puzzy and getting your money? lol. Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving scumbag. Here’s some advice. go back to Israel and reconnect with your roots. Your time on the chitlin circuit is over.

        Yeah man ya know? And keeping it 100 Israel ain’t his or the euro settlers roots, Europe is. He’s just taking advantage of US greed and the negroes are following along.

        We need to take note of their moves and do for self. But I’ll give Montezuma credit, ‘carpetbagger’? Best diss on AHH all year, ha.

      • Montezuma1

        Lyor was born in Israel. Wasn’t speaking of historic/Biblical Israel.

      • Pirate7X

        True, I know this. Just getting to the root. Still salutes on the ‘carpetbagger’ diss, most original for ’13.

        Tell the evidence on Cohen’s wife getting tapped…

      • Montezuma1

        I don’t know about the tape. Just know she fucked his driver from Queens and Lyor paid dude off to be silent and leave town.

      • Montezuma1

        Oh his pimping isn’t? Carry on.
