After recently winning album of the year at the 2020 Soul Train Awards, Summer Walker looks to take the next step in her career, this time as a budding executive. Today (Dec. 9), Billboard exclusively reports that Walker will launch her new imprint Ghetto Earth Records in a joint venture deal with Interscope Records.
"I came up with Ghetto Earth because earth is ghetto," Walker tells Billboard in a statement. "I don't wanna be controlling over my artist's music. I want them to be fully involved in everything they put out. I'm just here to support and help them get to wherever it is they're trying to go in life."
Walker's first signee is burgeoning singer/songwriter NO1-NOAH. NO1 shined on Walker's standout records "SWV" and "White Tee," which both reside on her latest EP, Life on Earth.
