Timbaland’s Mosley Music Group announced a joint venture with Def Jam Recordings Friday morning (March 15).
For their first move within the partnership, emerging Chicago native Cosha TG released his Summer Nights EP under the Good Vibes Forever/Mosley Music Group imprint, which is exclusively produced by Timbo and the Factory team.
“We are happy to be partners with Paul Rosenberg and Def Jam. Paul has an entrepreneurial perspective on our industry, as he comes from not only the label side of the business but management as well,” Timbaland said via press release. “Our Mosley Music team and roster are proud to be aligned with such an iconic label as Def Jam.”
Before joining Def Jam, Mosley Music Group was last involved with Epic Records, after signing a joint venture deal in 2014. The imprint included Timbaland’s former protege, Tink.
“Timbaland is nothing short of a living legend, having redefined and pushed the sound of hip-hop forward for decades,” Def Jam ceo Paul Rosenberg added. “We are so proud and excited to partner with him on this next chapter of his remarkable journey.”
Even with over 25 years in the music biz and a decorated resume, Timbo is always looking for new talent to groom. TG’s Summer Nights arrived on streaming services Friday (March 15), as the EP finds the 21-year-old exercising his melodic flow through six moody tracks. Cosha already brought one of the project’s standouts to life with the “Call My Phone” visual, which premiered over at Complex.
Timbaland also celebrated his 47th birthday earlier in the week.
