Cinematic Music's Jonny Shipes Joins Forces W/ Van Dyke Music's Hovain Hylton To Launch Left Right Management
Hip-Hop is surely in good hands in 2017.
The latest news in the culture comes from the hometown of Hip-Hop, NYC, as Cinematic Music Group founder Jonny Shipes and Hovain Hylton of Van Dyke Music Group have combined their talents to form a hybrid label/management company called Left Right Management. Both industry insiders have packed resumes. Shipes has worked with established artists like Cam'ron, Smoke DZA, Joey Bada$$, Nipsey Hu$$le, Big K.R.I.T. and T-Pain to name a few. Hylton's management expertise comes from his time spearheading the career of Brooklyn rapper Young Lito and recently, Genius artist relations manager Rob Markman. The newly formed company is focusing their efforts to take on up-and-coming artists and veterans alike to take their careers to the next level.
Left Right Management is going to call Brooklyn it's home nestled inside Shipes' Cinematic offices and will be looking to hire "a creative team of managers and rising executives" to run inside operations.
“I’ve always had an admiration for Shipes being a talent scout,” Hovain said in a statement, noting that Van Dyke Music Group is released through Cinematic. “I believe in the universe and karma and energy; it seemed like the perfect synergy at the perfect time.”
“I haven’t had anyone in years like Hovain that knows how the industry moves from the non-corporate side," Shipes said in a statement. "I couldn’t be as successful as I want to be if I don’t touch the people Hovain touches and vice versa. It’s a really good partnership. We are two independent minds who have built everything we have without any industry insiders.”
“We’re looking to put good young hungry managers under us to mold their talent and managing,” Shipes said. “If you’re a young executive and don’t want to get taken advantage of, come to us.”
