CTE/Def Jam artist BloodRaw has joined the roster of artists being
represented by Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond’s management company, Czar
Entertainment, it was announced today.
The announcement comes two days after the rapper's former manager,
Florida record promoter and indie exec C. Wakeley, announced that he and
the artist had parted ways under amicable terms.
“The new management situation came [about] because I was really
looking to take my career to the another level,” explained BloodRaw of
his decision to bring on Rosemond and his team. “I needed someone
reputable and able to see my coals and ambitions the way I did.”
He went on to tell AllHipHop.com that he was brought to Rosemond via
industry veteran Wendy Day of the Rap Coalition, who is a mutual friend.
Speaking exclusively to AllHipHop.com, Rosemond seemed equally
confident with his latest acquisition, who he believes stands to
positively impact the music industry.
“I feel that BloodRaw is a force to be reckoned with in that whole
Southern movement,” he said. “He’s part of an elite crew of rappers
from the South [that includes] T.I., Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane and
Ludacris. He’s among those ranks.”
Czar Entertainment has also been representing Atlanta’s Gucci Mane
for approximately ten months, Rosemond said, and is responsible for his
major label deal with Atlantic Records.
“Gucci wasn't getting the exposure he needed on an independent
label. Now we have him in a situation where he'll be able to attain his
full potential as an artist,” said the industry veteran, whose firm also
represents The Game and producer Bryce Wilson.
BloodRaw continues a promotional tour with his U.S. D.A. group mates Young Jeezy and Slick Pulla in support of their debut Young Jeezy Presents U.S.D.A: Cold Summer, which spent three weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Rap album chart.
He is also currently pushing the lead single from his forthcoming solo debut My Life The True Testimony, due out in late 2007.
