Kanye West’s Former Manager John Monopoly Launches New Record Label
Kanye West’s former manager and close associate John Monopoly and business partner Larro Wilson have launched a new Chicago-based record label, Lawless Inc.
John Monopoly and his company Hustle Period helped launch the careers of several major recording artists including Kanye West, Carl Thomas and Shawnna.
Coupled with his experience as VP of Producer Management at Violator, A&R at Jive Records, COO at G.O.O.D. Music Label, Monopoly looks to repeat his previous successes as he seeks to become the premier Chicago based record label.
Their debut artist will be King Louie, whose new single “Too Cool” has picked up across the net and is currently in rotation at radio stations in Chicago.
The remix is expected to be released soon, as well and will feature 2Chainz & Red CafÃ©.
Kanye West referenced Monopoly’s talent in The Source Magazine in November of 2006.
“He was meant to make power moves in this game, I owe a lot of my success to him,” Monopoly said.
