Kanye West’s Manager Gee Roberson To Restart Geffen Records
Gee Roberson, the man managing some of the the greatest current hip-hop acts of our time including Drake, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, has been tapped by Universal Music Group to restart the Geffen records label. He will act as Chairman and, according to Bloomberg, he will “work to expand direct digital sales to consumers, merchandising, touring and management.”
Roberson started his career at Roc-a-Fella records as a young intern who rose up in the company during its explosive growth, during which time Jay-Z made a name for himself as one of the best-selling and most popular rappers in the world. Later, he went on to work with Hip Hop Since 1978, the management company, as co-CEO.
At Geffen, Roberson will be reporting to Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine. Congrats!
