Lyor Cohen has been major in the music industry for many years, and is reportedly starting his own talent management firm. Reports also have him adding Irv Gotti to his team, although nothing has been solidified.
Last week it was rumored that Cohen was putting together this management company but there was not enough concrete information to hang your hat on.Â
Irv Gotti was the former head of the record label The Inc., and is credited with finding JaÂ Rule and Ashanti.Â
The NY Post reports that Irv and Lyor struck a deal this past week, and Irv will be joining Lyor’s new company. In addition to this, apparently Irv has beenÂ advisingÂ another big rapper, Drake. If the two reported partnersÂ get Drake and Kanye West on board their company as well, they’ll beÂ managingÂ two of the most sought-after rappers, which definitely isn’t aÂ bad way to start a new agency.
