It was 1997 when Murder Inc., first burst onto the music scene and 20 years later they are still making headlines. Murder Inc. founder and CEO Irv Gotti announced earlier this year via Instagram that he was reviving his label that was bogged down by legal woes during the height of its success in the early 2000s which ultimately led to its demise.
This weekend he made another announcement that he and 300 Entertainment are now in business together “Me. Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles. Back at it again. Everyone get ready for some dope music.” he posted on his Instagram.
It is still unclear as to what the actual deal is but it most likely a distribution deal through 300 Entertainment. The partnership has already signed two acts Boogiie Byrd and duo Fitted Circle. Gotti also has created and was Executive Producer of ‘Tales: A New Hip Hop Anthology” series which will merge new and old school Hip Hop into visually stunning narratives premiering on June 27 at 10/9 on BET. Boogiie Byrd and Fitted Circle will both provide original music for the series.
