Irv Gotti Reportedly Joins Lyor Cohen's Management Company

Lyor Cohen allegedly teams with Irv Gotti for his yet-to-be-announced management company.

Rumors have been swirling that Lyor Cohen left Warner Music Group to start his own management company.

Now, the NY Post reports that the music mogul has made his first hire. Earlier this week, Cohen reportedly tapped former The Inc. honcho Irv Gotti to serve as his partner in the firm.

Gotti is supposedly trying to advise Drake as part of his new position. A picture of the two recently made the rounds on the Internet. Cohen, meanwhile, is looking to advise Kanye West as previously reported.

“If Lyor and Irv do work together, it’s possible they’ll have two of the biggest hip-hop stars under their management,” said a source.

    Success with Ja and Murder Inc AND is the reason we got to hear DMX and the reason Jay-Z got the distrubution deal with Def Jam" Just because he worked with them in some capacity didn't mean that was the sole reason any one of those people you mentioned experienced success. If anything he held Ja back. Didn't manage Ashanti's career good enough. Llyod bad mouthed him. Yeah, he knows people, but I bet if rappers were being honest they'd say they don't trust or much like him.

    This sounds like a bad idea on all sides. Irv had some success with Ja, but that seems like a hundred years ago. With albums delayed all the time, and very few seeing platinum, unless they branch out and sign artists that are in demand, this could be a disaster.

      Success with Ja and Murder Inc AND is the reason we got to hear DMX and the reason Jay-Z got the distrubution deal with Def Jam. Dude was running around with all of them since the late 80's/early 90's. Plus he's one of the reasons why Ashanti blew up, Lloyd blew up (until he left) etc. Irv still advises artists and has been influential in alot of peoples careers (ie. Nicki Minaj and more). Dude is smart and knows how to find the artists that can blend right in the middle between the corporate world and the streets, aka street artists with either business sense or that can sell records. He honestly seems like someone who's passionate about this culture.
