Entertainment Consultant Harold Whaley Brokers Major Label Distribution Deal for PROTEKTED Records
Entertainment Consultant brokers Major Label Distribution Deal for Detroit based Label.
By: Monogram Virtua
We are happy that there is good news for Detroit after such a dismal market forecast. We feel this partnership will bring new opportunities to independent artist globally. "We're both honored and excited to be partnered with the best in distribution. BUNGALO & UMGD and PROTEKTED Records will make an awesome team," said PROTEKTED Records Founder and CEO Jon Gornbein. "Their team has indicated a steadfast belief in what we're trying to do here, and together I can only tell the world to expect great things," Jon added.
Bungalo is equally as happy with its decision to bring the PROTEKTED Records family under our distribution network. "A fast growing label like Protekted Records is the perfect fit for us," remarks Bungalo Label acquisition Executive VP, Robert (Leo) Rodgers. "With the economy in a downturn, labels are being extremely selective about who they partner with in the coming years. An artist like P-Live allows us to be creative in our marketing efforts. PROTEKTED Records and P-Live bring that something special to the table, and P-Live has a great lyrical presence and is the real deal".
PROTEKTED Records plans to utilize the new relationship to continue building and growing the company. "This partnership with Bungalo & UMGD goes a long way to prove that our mission is not only the right one, but one that others can respect and get behind. PROTEKTED Records is clearly all about great music and great marketing," said the label's Relations Consultant, Harold Whaley. Whaley first heard about PROTEKTED Records on Digiwaxx’s online music distribution website. “When I first encountered PROTEKTED Records, what excited me to work with them was the fact that they were pass the beginning stages and just needed the extra push”, remarked Whaley. "PROTEKTED Records does things differently than most independents. They take bigger chances, and are finding and attracting better talent as a result. PROTEKTED Records has a bright future, so I foresee bigger and better goals being achieved," he added.
About P-Live: P Live a.k.a. Isaiah Perkins was bred on the streets of the Detroit. When P-Live started performing, he needed a name for himself and every time he stepped to the microphone, they said he was live. It had a nice ring to it. So with that he went from just being P to becoming P-Live. He’s believed to be the second coming. Born out of the cipher and the battlegrounds of Detroit’s streets, P-Live’s come to offer a rebirth of rap at the tender age of twenty-five. It’s the crowd that got him hooked and it’s the crowd he hooks when he spits on the mic. Around school, he was the man to meet in the bathroom and hallways. Back then P-Live was just having fun, enjoying the crowd’s comparisons of him to likes of Jay-Z. He remembers, “They were comparing me to one of the top dawg’s in the game. I was like whoa.” He’s been rapping for about six years, but inside the cipher he lives to be the one they want to see. One day he found himself chilling and writing out songs. Soon a song became an arsenal… an arsenal that wiped out most of his local competition. He made the final round of the Roc-A-Fella Records’ Rock the Mic battle in 2004. During Rock the Mic, P-Live found his rhythm with the crowd. Listening to P-Live is like listening to poetry… you just have to listen. His style was so intimidating that when Roy Jones Freestyle Battle came to town, it was cancelled after no one would step to him. The crowd erupted with all eyes on P-Live, when he stepped on stage. “It felt more like a showcase than a battle,” he remarks. P-Live has performed with Ludacris, Lil Wayne, Mike Jones, Jim Jones, Paul Wall, 50 Cent, Kevin Rudolf, Estelle, Sean Paul, and was on tour with Mobb Deep. The fall issue (lil Wayne is on the cover) of Hip Hop Weekly named P-Live the "next household name"
