Timbaland‘s Mosley Music Group and Def Jam Recordings announced on Friday that they have signed a long-term joint venture agreement.
The joint venture made its first release on the same day, bringing out Cosha TG‘s debut EP, Summer Nights, which was produced by Timbaland and his production team, THE Factory.
Announcing the partnership, Def Jam chairman & CEO Paul Rosenberg said, “Timbaland is nothing short of a living legend, having redefined and pushed the sound of hip-hop forward for decades,” and added, “We are so proud and excited to partner with him on this next chapter of his remarkable journey.”
“We are happy to be partners with Paul Rosenberg and Def Jam,” said Timbaland. “Paul has an entrepreneurial perspective on our industry, as he comes from not only the label side of the business but management as well. Our Mosley Music team and roster are proud to be aligned with such an iconic label as Def Jam.”
Prior to the deal with Def Jam, Mosley Music Group was in a tie-up with Epic Records from 2014. The group had worked with Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, Aaliyah, Nelly Furtado and several others.
Timbaland, who is among the most successful producers for well over two decades now, had also affiliated with Interscope in the past.
