In the past few months the industry has gone through some major changes. Warner Music Group has consolidated Atlantic and Elektra into a single operation, Universal Music Group has folded its DreamWorks label into Geffen Records and BMG North America has realigned its U.S. labels and operations by expanding RCA Music Group to include Arista Records and relocated LaFace Records and So So Def Records within their newly formed Zomba Label Group.
Patrick Reilly, VP of Corporate Communications at BMG Worldwide, M-1 and Stic.man of Dead Prez, Imani and Booty Brown of The Pharcyde, Carl Thomas (Bad Boy Records) and Curtains (Radar Records) all sat down to discuss this situation with ReactMag.com.
