About the show:
“Music Moguls” gives viewers a raw, never-before-seen look at the boardroom hustle and infamous lives of a group of well-known music impresarios who have launched the careers of some of the biggest artists in the game.
As artists themselves, Birdman, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, and Damon Dash bring their unique blend of smarts and creativity to the stage, the boardroom, and the streets, as they try to balance the concerns and obligations of family with the never-ending demands of the music business. From grooming new talent to building new empires these moguls dare to do whatever they need to do to stay at the top of the game.
Bryan “Birdman” Williams is the co-founder of Cash Money Records that today is home to rap and hip hop’s biggest names, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake. Williams has also ventured outside of the music industry with deals in liquor, apparel and book publishing. Birdman continues to build his empire by cultivating new talent to be not only artists but also moguls.
Snoop Dogg is one of the most recognized music moguls in the world, beginning his career under the guidance of Dr. Dre and going on to become a multi-platinum recording artist and producer. Snoop is also an entrepreneur who has been at the forefront of merging technology and cannabis with his lifestyle media site that focuses on cannabis culture, “Merry Jane.”
Jermaine Dupri has been a record producer and rapper for some of the biggest names in R&B and rap, working with artists such as Mariah Carey, Usher and Bow Wow. He established his record label So So Def Recordings at a young age with success breaking artists such as Kriss Kross and Da Brat. Dupri continues to build on his empire with involvement in app development and TV production.
Damon “Dame” Dash co-founded Roc-A-fella Records with Jay Z and Kareem “Biggs” Burke in 1995. He has since begun Damon Dash Music Group and his production company Dame Dash Studios. Dash continues to show the world he isn’t slowing down his domination of the entertainment industry with his ventures in music, production, apparel and alcohol brands.
