Veteran rapper Memphis Bleek has stepped into the role of music executive with Warehouse Music Group.
Bleek has already signed up-and-coming rappers Manolo Rose and Casanova to his imprint.
The Brooklynite explained how his mentor Jay Z helped get Warehouse off the ground.
“When I was telling [Jay] about Manolo and Cas, I was trying to bring them to Roc Nation, just trying to get them a deal,” Bleek told Hot 97’s Nessa. “He’s like, ‘Don’t worry about it, little bro. I’ll give you a label. You sign them.”
According to Bleek, Def Jam and Universal are handling the distribution for Warehouse.
Casanova collected a lot of plays thanks to his single “Don’t Run” and the song’s remix featuring NYC spitters Fabolous, Young M.A, Dave East, and Don Q.
Manolo Rose has the internet-buzzworthy tracks “Run Ricky Run,” “F-ck 12,” and “God Level” in his discography.
