Capitol Music Group/Motown Exercises Quality Control with Joint Venture



Quality Control Music, the highly successful and influential hip-hop label based in Atlanta, has entered into a new joint venture with Capitol Music Group, in tandem with its Motown records label, in which QCM artists will be worked by Motown and other divisions within CMG. The deal was announced by QCM’s CEO, Pierre “Pee” Thomas, the company’s COO, Kevin “Coach K” Lee, and CMG’s Chairman and CEO Steve Barnett. The deal was brought to CMG and signed by Motown President, Ethiopia Habtemariam, who will oversee the companies’ partnership in conjunction with CMG Executive Vice President, Scott Greer.

The first release under the new agreement will come in the fourth quarter of this year from Atlanta-based rapper OG Maco, who has risen to fame through a series of EPs and mixtapes and his 2014 smash single, “U Guessed It.” CMG and Motown teams and affiliations for Quality Control Music artists will be jointly decided on a case-by-case basis between the two companies, with releases being handled through Universal Music Distribution or CMG’s Caroline.
