Mentoring

“As a veteran in the music/entertainment industry I’ve been involved in the evolution of the industry which has gone from grass roots to high tech. I was mentored by Keith Frye, former president of Capital Records, and pioneer in music industry promotions in the south. Under his guidance, I learned the fundamentals of artist development and I’ve spent my career perfecting what I’ve been taught. Now, I make it my mission to mentor or council aspiring artists in those same skills.”. – Biznessman

“Mentored Travis James, who is now running his own label, signed with Empire”. – Biznessman

“With more than 25 years in the fields of artist development, national distribution, promotions and marketing, and a track record of successfully creating campaigns, and
interpreting markets, I guarantee that my guidance will take you farther than going it alone.”. – Biznessman

About

Over the years Biznessman has, through various label deals, worked with hip-hop and R&B greats from Tupac to Teddy Riley. His first indie artist after leaving the majors was 5th Ward Weebie, the official King of Bounce. Weebie, working with the likes of Master P and the No Limit Family, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dawg, and Juvenile, was the driving force behind the New Orleans bounce music scene. Before his untimely death in 2020, Weebie was honored with a BMI award for his work with Drake.

On his Younger Entertainment imprint, Biznessman’s influence extended to include blues and jazz artists, Willie Clayton and Walter Bland
