WARNER MUSIC GROUP has entered into an exclusive agreement with MINNEAPOLIS-based RHYMESAYERS ENTERTAINMENT. RHYMESAYERS was founded in 1995 by SEAN DALEY and BRENT SAYERS and has grown to become one of the country's most successful independent hip-hop labels.
In making the announcement, Pres./ILG & ASYLUM RECORDS TODD MOSCOWITZ said, "SEAN DALEY and BRENT SAYERS have been visionaries in the vibrant TWIN CITIES hip-hop music scene. We are excited to bring them and RHYMESAYERS into the ILG family to help them further develop and support their impressive roster of artists as well as collaborate on future projects."
SAYERS added, "More than our desire to be independent, RHYMESAYERS first and foremost has always wanted to be in a position to help our artists reach their individual goals and aspirations. ILG understood that and has provided us with an extremely unique opportunity to do this. Under this new deal, we can remain as independent as we have ever been while utilizing individual select services as needed. Additionally, if desired and warranted, we have the potential to upstream artists to a WMG label while still playing an integral role in the artists' career. Working with ILG and WMG will allow us to grow like never before and all of us here at RHYMESAYERS are extremely excited about this new partnership."
