Bloomberg News reports that Universal Music Group hired Gee Roberson, who manages a staple of rappers including superstars Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, to restart the company's Geffen Records imprint.
Roberson will be chairman of New York-based Geffen, Universal Music, part of Paris-based Vivendi SA (VIV). He will report to Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine, who was seen on American Idol as a mentor last season. "Gee has a unique combination of talents that the music industry really needs running a record company today" Iovine said in the statement.
Sounds like Roberson just scored a seriously plum gig.
