Def Jam for a new generation.
Def Jam Recordings will be celebrating their 35th anniversary by highlighting their catalog of new talent. The legendary record label has announced Undisputed, a compilation project that will introduce their rising stars. The project will drop on March 8. “During the course of the past year, in collaboration with our talented EVP Steven Victor and our incredible team of executives, we have worked diligently to define the label we strive to become,” Def Jam chairman & CEO Paul Rosenberg said in a press release. “One of the most important aspects of our efforts has centered around building a new roster. Together with these incredible new artists we have developed urgent, cutting-edge, and truly great new music and content. As we proudly enter our 35th anniversary year, I’m excited to launch this project, one that I think defines and encapsulates our new direction.”
“I believe in artistry and the idea that great music will find its audience,” said Steven Victor, Def Jam Recordings EVP & head of A&R. “I’m beyond excited about the roster of new artists we’ve built here at Def Jam. Each one of them is making the kind of music I want to listen to now. We’ve brought them together and asked them to buy into something larger, the Def Jam logo and legacy. It’s remarkable to see how much these artists have embraced it. I couldn’t be more proud of the results.” The project will highlight artists such as Fetty Luciano, YFL Kelvin, Lil G, and more.
