Born and raised in the streets of New York City by a single parent mother, Robert began his career in the music business as an intern at Calliope studios in New York, NY. As the visionary thought leader of Wealth Nation Entertainment, he orchestrated a major label distribution deal with Universal Music Group Distribution (UMGD) via INgrooves Fontana, and has held several major positions in the industry throughout his career including the following: V.P. of A&R with IMG recordings, which is distributed via Warner Bros., Sony, EMI, and Universal, E.V.P. of Corporate Affairs/Strategic alliances for HYPE Magazine and THM Media, and recently appointed by President and Vice President of Bungalo/Universal as Regional Director for South Regional Markets.
“I was Gunplay’s (MMG/DEF JAM) Business Manager at the time he got his solo deal with Def Jam and instrumental in working his team to finalize that deal. I negotiated and secured the deal for New York rapper “COMPUTA” with eOne (formerly Koch) and partnered with Def Jef to get his record placement with BET on the new Wayans Bros. Show “Next Generation Wayans,” which aired in 2013.
I’m also Nancy Denise (Bad Girls Club/ATL) business manager and worked with her on closing her new deal with Oxygen network for her own show. We orchestrated a multi-album deal for multi-platinum selling recording artist’s SOUL FOR REAL with IMG/WARNER and just recently secured a deal for Gold selling recording artist’s “HARLEM WORLD” Mase’s group with IMG/UNIVERSAL.
Separate and aside from that, I have personally secured 22 distribution deals for independent artists in 2013 with Universal/Fontana INgrooves via a sub-label deal with 5150 Media-John Ferguson V.P. of Bungalo/Universal.”
