Word on the street is that DJ Khaled wants L.A. Reid’s former spot at Epic Records!
According to Page Six, several industry heavy weights have been trying to secure Reid’s former gig, including DJ Khaled.
“He was petitioning to get that job. He’s like, ‘I make more happen than anyone in the game, why would I not be considered to run the label?’” quoted an Industry insider on Khaled.
After news that Reid was out surfaced, so did allegations of sexual harassment. Other rumors spread that Sony CEO Rob Stringer may have axed Reid because he’s a diva. Another inside source claims,
“The girl thing was just one more piece to the problem. That’s been going on for decades. He doesn’t have a superstar roster to spend what he spends and be the diva that he is. Stringer wasn’t having it. He wants to put his own people in and clean a lot of baggage out.”
Hey, maybe they’ll put in Sony Music UK CEO Jason Iley or RCA president Tom Corson. Rumor has it that some of the folks over at Sony think that DJ Khaled is just a hype man and not someone who should be running a label. What are your thoughts?
