  • BMG收購了獨立嘻哈廠牌RBC唱片公司


    ◎BMG收購了備受推崇的位於洛杉磯的獨立嘻哈廠牌RBC唱片公司。RBC加入BMG在洛杉磯和紐約的錄音業務的行列,其中包括位於俄勒岡州波特蘭市的Rise 唱片公司和紐約市的S-Curve唱片公司。

    ◎RBC過去發行過包括來自Tech N9ne、E-40、Run the Jewels、Goldlink和Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony的作品。第一批計劃發行的作品包括來自Chief Keef和Flippa的新音樂,還有更多將陸續公佈。

    ◎這是自從BMG於2017年2月收購位於納許維爾的BBR音樂集團(其下包括Broken Bow唱片公司、Wheelhouse唱片公司和Stoney Creek唱片公司)以來,首次再度收購唱片廠牌。RBC由Brian Shafton和Ben Grossi於2012年推出,是一家獨立的饒舌嘻哈廠牌暨藝人服務公司,專門從事數位營銷和發行。RBC是現代嘻哈界眾多有影響力的藝人的唱片廠牌,包括Chief Keef、Flippa(又名Skippa Da Flippa)、Waka Flocka Flame、Big L和Gucci Mane。


    BMG has acquired respected L.A.-based indie hip-hop label RBC Records. RBC joins BMG's recording operations in Los Angeles and New York which includes Rise Records in Portland, OR and S-Curve Records in NYC.

    RBC's past releases include material from Tech N9ne, E-40, Run the Jewels, Goldlink, and Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. The first projects slated for release include new music from Chief Keef and Flippa, with more to be announced soon.

    The acquisition of RBC is the first label buy since BMG acquired Nashville-based BBR Music Group, which includes Broken Bow Records, Wheelhouse Records, and Stoney Creek Records in February 2017.

    Launched by partners Brian Shafton and Ben Grossi in 20012, RBC is an independent rap/hip-hop label and artist services company specializing in digital marketing and distribution. RBC serves as a label home to a number of influential artists in the modern hip-hop scene, including Chief Keef, Flippa (aka Skippa Da Flippa), Waka Flocka Flame, Big L, and Gucci Mane.

    "BMG respects our history, took notice of our immense growth over the past couple of years, and most importantly, are fully invested in our future. We love BMG's vision, team, and infrastructure. By joining forces, RBC will gain tremendous synergies that will allow us unbridled growth. I am so excited about this partnership and know that it will propel us into the future," Brian Shafton said in a press statement.

    "BMG understands the intrinsic value and experience RBC brings in its more than 16-year history in the hip-hop/rap game and BMG possesses a formidable machine to complement it. The depth and scale of what BMG brings to the table will allow RBC to achieve new heights," Ben Grossi added.
