L.A. Reid out … DJ Khaled in?
Amid sexual harassment allegations, Reid was ousted from his position as the head of Epic Records, but the job may not be vacant for long. Looks like DJ Khaled is gunning for the gig.
A source told PageSix, “He was petitioning to get that job. He’s like, ‘I make more happen than anyone in the game, why would I not be considered to run the label?’ ”
But could the mega-producer do both — run a label and keep cranking out hits? While Khaled isn’t likely to quit his passion for a suit-and-tie corporate job, the question may be a moot point. Apparently, even though he wants the Epic title he may not be getting it. “Khaled is a big hype machine — not a person who’s running a record label,” said a source. “My guess is [Sony Music UK CEO] Jason Iley will run either Columbia or Epic or they will take [RCA president] Tom Corson . . . and put him at Columbia or Epic.”
Look, we’re not trying to black a blessing, but whatever happens, Khaled, please make sure that the music remains the number one priority.
