Randy Phillips Launches Global Entertainment

Congrads to former CEO of +Aeg Live +Randy Phillips on the launch of his new global entertainment business. Former AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips has been tapped as CEO of Global Entertainment, a newly-launched U.S. division for London-based Global, the Media and Entertainment Group. The multifaceted, “360″-styled content company will include touring, label, publishing, artist management, branding/sponsorships and marketing divisions, with new headquarters based in Los Angeles and a London office.

Touting a “real 360 content creation company that genuinely offers a vast array of services to artists, combined with Global’s financial commitment,” Phillips believes the Global model is the way of the future. “I believe that within three to five years, all of the major labels that exist will look like Global,” he tells Billboard.

Global Radio is the U.K.’s largest commercial radio company, with national stations in every genre. Global founder/executive president Ashley Tabor has used this base to create an entertainment company that now includes Global Television and Global Publishing (Ellie Goulding, Corinne Bailey Rae, LMFAO), with the latter to be part of the Global Entertainment U.S. division under Phillips.

Phillips comes to Global Entertainment after 13 years as CEO at AEG Live, where he promoted world tours by artists such as Justin Timberlake, Bon Jovi, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias, Rod Stewart, and Prince. He oversaw the expansion of AEG Live’s Festival Division (Coachella, Stagecoach, New Orleans Jazzfest) and produced films featuring Michael Jackson, Bieber and Katy Perry. In his diverse music-biz career, Phillips also managed or co-managed Stewart, Toni Braxton, Lionel Richie and Usher, and, with former partner Arnold Steifel, launched the Gasoline Alley imprint in a joint venture with MCA.

Phillips became a major player on a global stage at AEG Live, overseeing a network of regional offices and working with such ongoing subsidiaries as Goldenvoice, Concerts West, and TMG-AEG Live. Virtually out of the gate, AEG became a global touring deal competitor to Live Nation (albeit on a significantly smaller scale), with creative marketing and promotion for a wide range of touring clients. Phillips left AEG Live amid massive restructuring at the firm following the resignation of former AEG CEO Tim Lieweke, with his departure coming in a year where the firm reported best-ever Boxscore grosses totaling $1.1 billion.

Since his exit from AEG Live, the typically outspoken, highly visible Phillips has been noticeably absent from the music scene. He tells Billboard he actually signed his deal with Global on April 1 of last year, and has spent the interim fine-tuning the model and building a roster of executive talent. “Doing a startup is different than stepping into an existing job,” Phillips says, pointing out that he has launched similar ground-up businesses in AEG Live and Gasoline Alley. “Building a business from scratch is like putting together a puzzle, the pieces all have to fit. You can’t just hire people because they have great resumes, they have to be able to work with the other people you bring in.”

In that regard, Phillips has hired a team of industry pros, including executive vp/chief financial officer Chuck Ciongoli, formally of Universal music; longtime Phillips associate David Loeffler as chief creative officer; and business affairs executive Rand Hoffman. In addition, executive vice president and urban music head Garnett March brings in his own multi-faceted joint venture entertainment company in Global/The Chemists, which steers the career of Anthony Lewis. Other senior executives are also already in place, and will be announced shortly.

In the U.K., Global boasts national radio stations in virtually every genre: Capital FM (Top 40), Capital Xtra (Urban/Rhythm), Heart (Hot Adult Contemporary), XFM (Alternative), Gold (oldies), Smooth Radio (adult contemporary), Classic FM (classical) and LBC (news/talk).  Tabor has used this base to create an entertainment company that now includes Global Television (the UK national Capital and Heart video music networks) and Global Publishing, now under the Global Entertainment umbrella.

While no Global Entertainment tours or events have been announced yet, it appears the firm is positioned to compete–or partner–with Live Nation and AEG as a tour producer and promoter on a global level. Sources cited several projects in the works, and while Phillips declines to elaborate, he tells Billboard, “It’s a new age we live in. There are no absolutes any more. They always say politics breeds strange bedfellows, well, business really does.”

In addition to Tabor, Global is led by Group CEO Stephen Miron, COO Ian Hanson, and director of broadcasting Richard Park. It is chaired by Lord Allen of Kensington.

[Single] K.G. 'Got It'

Kenneth Green, aka K.g, was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in October of 1986. Growing up, his time was divided between both parents as they separated when he was 3 years old. While living with his mother, K.g developed his love for music. He was blessed to have a mother who was a gifted singer with a talent in playing several instruments, favoring the drums. K.g followed in her footsteps and began learning to play at the age of 5. The love for music seemed to flow through his veins. His grandfather, Curly Moore, was a famous singer with a career beginning in the 60s and had hits such as, “Don’t Pity Me” and “Soul Train.” It’s only fitting that with this much talent in his DNA that he would create a name for himself.

Raised as a singer, K.g found that he was interested in and developed a passion for another type of music. At the age of 14, he began freestyling rhymes into a tape recorder. He played the recordings for his family and friends and received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from his peers and so began writing. At first his style was influenced by artists such as; Lil Wayne, Jadakiss, Snoopdogg, several other members of the early Cash Money label.

At 15, K.g began saving money for studio time. He was able to records his thoughts and fuse his lyrics with hard hitting base-line tracks. He put his heart and soul into the album and upon hearing the final version he said, “hearing my voice on a CD was one of the best feelings in the world...I was so excited and couldn’t wait to let everyone hear what I had done.” Feeling optimistic, he released his first mixtape titled, “BakaTown S***”.

A few months later, Hurricane Katrina submerged New Orleans with 20ft storm surges leaving most homes under 6-9 feet of water. K.g and his family relocated to Indiana, then San Antonio, Texas. Life became normal again for K.g after he began high school and developed a friendship with Zario “Z- man” Christian, based on similar interests in music. They spent many hours in the studio and by 2006 K.g has a second mixtape titled, “Top Notch Music”.

His music career was growing as his life in the streets grew too. He quit school and fully immersed himself in street-life. Money was good...until it wasn’t. In 2007, K.g was apprehended by the San Antonio police for aggravated robbery. While he was incarcerated he learned that he was expecting his first child, a son. He was later released in 2008. With time served and freedom to be a father and a family man, in 2009 he had a second son.

Differences developed between himself and the mother of his sons which led to K.g and his sons relocating back to New Orleans. He continued to balance his life as a responsible father to his sons and his career as an artist, juggling family life with a job and studio time. In 2012, K,g met Finesse, ceo of Finesse Entertainment , who believed in K.g’s talent and invested in him. Finesse and K.g travelled several times to Memphis, Tennessee for open mics. During one of his trips, K.g met Sticky Fingers (an actor in the movie “Next Friday”) and Lord Infamous of “Three 6 Mafia”. Meeting them, and seeing the life they live made K.G. want to work harder and succeed with his music. K.G.went on tour, traveling from state to state, during which he opened for Meek Mills. He finally felt as if he was succeeding.

Late in 2012 K.g finished his 3rd mixtape “Reflection of A Killer”, the mixtape wasn’t dropped on any major platforms, and didn’t do as well as K.G. would’ve liked but he still kept pushing and created his label “Last Route Entertainment.” He wanted to become an independent artist, and do the things that he felt previous labels hadn’t done for him.

KG. began working with his long time friend, Aaron “Ace” Mercedel who introduced him to Corey “Mr. Serv-On” Smith, a former rapper of No Limit Records. Me. Serv-On believed in helping young and upcoming artists and offered K.g a once in a lifetime opportunity.l to go to Australia. In 2014 K.g welcomed his 3rd son into the world and shortly thereafter, traveled to Australia to work on a documentary with Mr Serv-On about violence in New Orleans and New Orleans Rappers. Some of the documentary was filmed in New Orleans, showing the day and life of young black men. The rest of the documentary was filmed in Australia to show the difference between the lifestyles of the young men, also wanting K.G. to experience what their life was like because he showed them a look into his. After K.g returned he worked with producer, rapper/singer Aaron “Ace” Mercadel and became a part of Boss Entertainment. While rapping with Boss Entertainment, K.g opened for artists, Juvenile and Hot Boy Turk.

By 2016, K.g had his 1st baby girl, received his Associates of Science degree in drafting and design and was also nominated for “Best New Song” and “Best Video” along side Mr. Serv-On for their team-up in the song “Famous”, at the NOLA Hip-Hop Awards. His life and career were taking off and heading to the top was the goal.

K.g continued to move forward with his career. Although his career was doing good, His personal life took a turn when his good friend “Butta-B was murdered. At his funeral, K.G was introduced to Corey “CO’Baby” Coleman, CEO of Phreedom Records, LLC,. After several meetings and encounters with the CEO, K.G was offered a contract as a artist in the group “Tha Team”. Since signing, K.g was working as a group member of “Tha Team” with artist’s; G.o and Mastamynd. They dropped their first single, “I’m On One” which was a tribute to their brother and signed artist to Phreedom Records, Butta B. Tha Team dropped a song titled, “Wave”, which did really well, leading them to release “Benz”, “In my zone” and “100 grand”. About a year after signing the group decided to part ways and pursue solo careers, because they all had different visions in the type of music and style they wanted to present, all while remaining friends.

K.G. Went on to create music and release new songs. He also began to network with different people, forming friendships and relationships with people that had the same vision for success.While working with his cousin Cedric, YGNBigGreedy and CEO of YGN, “Young Greedy Nation”, he was introduced to music video producer, “Hollywood Pompeii” during the video recording for their song, “In My Bag”. Hollywood and K.G. formed an acquaintance, and began working together. K.G.hired the video producer to film a video for his song “Run It Up”, which was released on YouTube, gaining over 11,000 views. Realizing they shared the same passion for success, their acquaintance turned into a parternship/friendship, that would lead K.G to strike a deal with CEO of ParkerBoy Entertainment, PBE Pluto. K.G signed with ParkerBoy Entertainment in March 2022, and released his first single on May 21st, under the label titled, “Got It”, which is doing really well with the public.

K.g plans to release more music in the near future and wants to continue building his career as a artist. He is determined to build an empire for his family. He also plans to be socially involved in his community by being a role model and an outlet of knowledge for young men and aspiring rap artists in the New Orleans area, showing them that you can achieve your dreams with hard work and dedication.

Two Plead Guilty To Scam In Roc Nation, Wu-Tang Clan Case


Two men have pleaded guilty to a scheme in which they pretended to be affiliated with the legendary hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan and Jay-Z’s entertainment company Roc Nation in order to scam hotels and luxury limousine companies out of thousands of dollars worth of goods and services, the Department of Justice said this week.


According to the DoJ, Aaron Barnes-Burpo and Walker Washington both pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit wire fraud, a charge that could land both up to two decades in prison.


According to an Associated Press report from when the trial first began in February, Barnes-Burpo and Washington took advantage of hotels to the tune of more than $100,000, including some of the most luxurious hotels in the southern U.S.

Blocchain Ent Presents "Money Gang" Featuring | @MRStackiin @ScopeXXL @MacTrivee @BlocChain_Ent


Just in the time for the summer, rising artist KT Foreign drops off the official visuals for his new banger "Money Gang" featuring TJD and Shawn Scope. Recently known for his work with SOBxRBE and Mike Sherm, KT Foreign is keeping his foot on the gas with a slew of new music ready to release. A crushing bassline leads the way for each rapper to step up and talk their shit. Flexing on the broke boys, KT leads the break on "Money Gang" effortlessly flexing in his verse before passing the laid back chorus off to Shawn Scope. TJD gets beautifully ignorant on the beat for the second verse while tying the whole track together. Laid back chords mixed with nasty trap drums and a filthy bassline provide the canvas for these artists to hit a lick on the track. With visuals filmed and edited by Swagginson, KT Foreign, Shawn Scope, and TJD show they're ready to run up in the industry and clean house. 

Watch the official visuals for "Money Gang" and also read more about the Blocchain Entertainment label below.

New Stadium Coming To Inglewood, California

Rams owner Stan Kroenke, who bought 60 acres adjacent to the Forum a year ago, has joined forces with the owners of the 238-acre Hollywood Park site, Stockbridge Capital Group. They plan to add an 80,000-seat NFL stadium and 6,000-seat performance venue to the already-massive development of retail, office, hotel and residential space, Stockbridge and the Kroenke Group told The Times.

The announcement is the latest in more than a dozen stadium proposals that have come and gone in the meandering, two-decade effort to bring an NFL franchise back to the nation’s second-largest media market. But Kroenke’s move marks the first time an existing team owner has controlled a local site large enough for a stadium and parking.

What’s more, Kroenke, a billionaire who built his fortune in real estate, has the ability to move quickly. The Rams can choose later this month to convert their lease in St. Louis to year-to-year. The Rams declined comment on any plans to move, but it’s no secret that the team is unhappy in the Edward Jones Dome, which is outdated by current NFL standards.

The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders are similarly unhappy in old stadiums that don’t offer updated amenities. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league would not be accepting relocation applications for the 2015 season. So the earliest any team could move would be 2016. Any team that moves could play in a temporary venue, such as the Coliseum or Rose Bowl, until a new stadium is constructed.

The developers said no tax dollars would be used for the construction project, including the stadium. The group plans to begin gathering signatures soon for an initiative that would place the entire project on the Inglewood municipal ballot in 2015.

Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. said he was “extremely supportive” of the ballot initiative that would add the sports and entertainment complex to the already-approved Hollywood Park development and speed construction. The stadium could be completed by 2018, the developers said.

The owners are calling the combined Kroenke and Hollywood Park projects the City of Champions Revitalization Project. Wilson Meany, a San Francisco firm, is heading development of the site. Wilson Meany is also developing Bay Meadows, a former horse racing track in San Mateo.

The developers want to restore Inglewood to prominence as a sports and entertainment hub. Before Staples Center was built in 1999, Inglewood’s Forum was home to the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team and Kings hockey team. The Forum was recently renovated to be a pure music venue.

Since the Raiders and Rams left after the 1994 season, the threat of moving to Los Angeles has been used as leverage by NFL teams looking to get stadium deals done in their current cities. In that sense, the region has been more valuable to the league without a team than with one.
Because stadiums are so expensive, now routinely topping $1 billion — and because there is no appetite in Los Angeles for public funding — the NFL has a great deal of influence on which team or teams ultimately move into the market. The league can issue loans to help pay for a stadium and award Super Bowls, which are used as a financing mechanism. Any relocation must be approved by a three-quarters majority of team owners.

As it stands, Los Angeles has two sites with the legal, political and environmental clearances for NFL venues: the Farmers Field plan downtown and Ed Roski’s proposal in City of Industry. The stadium entitlement process, which invariably involves resolving lawsuits filed by people opposed to a given project, typically requires at least a year, thousands of pages of documents, and millions of dollars in legal and consulting fees.

The developers of the proposed downtown Los Angeles stadium, entertainment giant AEG, have a few more months to find a football team under an agreement with the city. AEG has vowed to build a stadium called Farmers Field along with a new wing for the city’s convention center. The center’s obsolete West Hall would be demolished to make way for Farmers Field.

Wal-Mart originally owned the 60 acres adjacent to the Forum but sold it to Kroenke after failing to get public approval for a superstore. Madison Square Garden Co., which owns the Forum, had planned to buy the lot in order to acquire more space for parking and possibly additional development, but Kroenke beat them to it.

Kroenke is a former Wal-Mart board member and husband of Ann Walton Kroenke, daughter of Wal-Mart co-founder Bud Walton. Forbes magazine estimates Kroenke’s net worth at $5.8 billion — not counting his wife’s $5.6 billion — making him the NFL’s second-richest owner to Seattle’s Paul Allen, the Microsoft co-founder who is worth an estimated $17.1 billion.

Sauvi DuVin (@SauviDuvin) - "No Tomorrow"

A humble R&B singer and songwriter with a unique, powerhouse voice, Sauvi DuVin is far from new on the music scene. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Sauvi DuVin began singing at the tender age of nine (9) years old. Her parents and grandparents kept her in church every Sunday, and it was only natural for her to begin using her gift to give glory to God in the church choir.
