Lyor Cohen is reportedly starting his own talent management firm, and has now struck a deal with Irv Gotti to join him.
We reported last week about music industry heavyweight, Lyor Cohen, in the works of putting together his own talentÂ management firm-- at least, these are the rumors presentlyÂ circulating.Â
At the time, Cohen had been reportedlyÂ advisingÂ one of the biggest rappers in the game, Kanye West, on upcoming deals and tours. Now it looks like Cohen has another music industry insider on his side, Irv Gotti.
The NY Post reports that Irv and Lyor struck a deal this past week, and Irv will be joining Lyor's new company. In addition to this, apparently Irv has beenÂ advisingÂ another big rapper, Drake. If the two reported partnersÂ get Drake and Kanye West on board their company as well, they'll beÂ managingÂ two of the most sought-after rappers, which definitely isn't aÂ bad way to start a new agency.
Nothing has been formally announced yet, so we'll keep you updated as more information comes in.
