Wiz Khalifa Signs Major Label Deal With Atlantic Records To Distribute Taylor Gang Entertainment
Wiz Khalifa and his business partner Tom Dzombak just signed a label deal with Atlantic Records to distribute their Taylor Gang Entertainment imprint. Reaching new heights after five years of showing their tenacity on the independent market, Atlantic Records Chairman/COO Julie Greenwald says she’s glad Wiz is bringing Taylor Gang aboard her label, which he’s been a part of for over a half decade.
“Wiz is an amazingly talented artist, songwriter and entrepreneur. We’ve been so proud to have him as an Atlantic recording artist for the past six years, during which he also built Taylor Gang into a powerhouse hip-hop brand with a phenomenal fan following. We are thrilled to be partnering with Wiz and Taylor Gang to take his crew to the next level, and welcome them to the Atlantic family.”
The new deal won’t affect Wiz, Ty Dolla $ign an Juicy J who are already signed to majors but it will help bring light to many of their up and coming acts. Taylor Gang Entertainment co-founder Will Dzombak added,
“We are very pleased to expand our business with our partners at Atlantic Records/Warner Music. This is a great step forward for Taylor Gang as we get ready to move into the new year and focus on growth. We are all very excited.”
Taylor Gang is also home to acts like Chevy Woods, J.R. Donato, Big Jerm, and Sosamann. Wiz added,
“I’m very excited about the deal with the gang. These guys are my family and friends first, now we’re gonna take this this shit to the next level.”
It looks like Wiz is making the transition from artist to label boss rather smoothly. Much success to him and The Taylor Gang.
