July 28, 2009 - PRLog -- (Atlanta, GA) – Music executive Demetrius “Kinky B” Ellerbee today announced the recent signing of R&B songstress Shareefa to his HUSH Management roster, and the negotiation of a label deal for the emerging artist with Disturbing Tha Peace (DTP)/Interscope Geffen A&M (IGA) Records.  Ellerbee, a proven executive with a successful 9-year track record, is credited with effectively shepherding the careers of several top artists, including Grammy-Award nominee and multi-platinum hip-hop artist Young Jeezy.  Jeezy also serves as Ellerbee’s business partner for CTE Music/Def Jam.  

Referred to as "The Soul of Disturbing Tha Peace," gritty vocalist Shareefa has now joined the Geffen music family where she hopes to continue making hit music and grow her fan base.  Previously signed to DTP, Geffen Records Chairman Ron Fair, Chaka Zulu, CEO of DTP and Ellerbee have now collaborated to develop and release her second studio album “The Secret,” which is scheduled for February, 2010.

“We’re excited to have signed Shareefa exclusively with HUSH Management,” comments Ellerbee. “She has a unique gift and is one of the most exceptional R&B artists I’ve seen in a long time.  With this new project, Shareefa can build on the initial street buzz she’s developed over the past three years to really break out and reach a much wider audience.”

In addition to Hush Management, Ellberbee has worked with close friend and business associate Young Jeezy by establishing CTE Music since 2000 and by creating a musical home for themselves and their talented roster of artists.  Currently, Ellerbee anticipates a great outcome for the  “America’s Most Wanted” Music Festival featuring Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Drake, Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em, Jeremih, and Pleasure P. In addition, Hush Management has began a new partnership with ‘Hip Hop Since 1978’ lead by Kyambo “Hip-Hop” Joshua and Gee Roberson.

Now, they hope to work that same magic for other CTE artists including Slick Pulla, JW, Boo, and 211 to name a few. Demetrius’ goal is to groom at least three to four more multi-platinum stars over the next 10 years, which he and Jeezy are well on the road to accomplishing with this impressive up-and-coming stable of talent.

Beyond his work co-owning a label and executive producing music, Ellerbee has established a solid track record as a savvy negotiator on behalf of his clients.  For example, under the HUSH Management banner Ellerbee has brokered multi-million dollar endorsement deals for Young Jeezy with blue-chip brands such as Adidas and Belvedere Vodka.
