No Reference for Uppermanagement at his original employer Roc-A-Fella records. (Mr. Bleek was lowerlevel midmanagement and unemployed at the moment)
This raises questions about working well with others. I'd like to be in contact with one of his cofounders before hiring.
- Contacted reference LA Reid
Says Mr. Carter's accomplishments at Def Jam are vastly overstated. Especially in terms of signing Ne-Yo. Mr. Reid himself claims that as his artist. Notes that Rihanna has not had one profitable album yet.
Oh wait, yeah she did make Def Jam money. Her first two albums besides the singles were kinda bombing though and even GGGB went a little under expectations (when your single is #1 for 11 weeks before your album hits you are supposed to be an easy #1, not struggling to get there).
