Signed T-Pain to the label.
Mickey "MeMpHiTz" Wright has been appointed to VP of A&R for the Zomba Label Group (ZLG). Wright reports to Peter Thea, senior VP of ZLG and is based in New York.
Most recently Wright was director of A&R for the label group and was responsible for signing T-Pain. Prior to joining ZLG in 2004, he was an A&R consultant at Arista Records where he signed J-Kwon.
