A few weeks ago, we saw reports that Snoop Dogg was eyeing an executive position at Def Jam. Though he’s worn a plethora of hats in his career, now he can add “record label executive” to the mix.
Effective immediately, he has now become Def Jam’s Senior Strategic Advisor.
This means he will be an executive creative and strategic consultant, a role in which he can work with the artist roster and label’s executive team to help build what’s in place. He will report to UMG chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge and Def Jam interim chairman and CEO Jeffrey Harleston.
Though he has celebrated much success as an artist, we’ll see how he does in this new position and if he brings any more West Coast talent to the label.
His latest album From Tha Streets 2 Tha Suites is out now.
OS REWIND: Justin Bieber – Peaches (Remix) (feat. Ludacris, Usher & Snoop Dogg)
