Starting in July, Sway Calloway of MTV will be joining the Shade 45 family to host a brand new morning show called, “Sway in the Morning”. The show will air Monday through Friday at 8 AM– 12 PM EST. Says Eminem:
“I got my start on radio with Sway and so it only makes sense for things to come full-circle and have him join the family at Shade 45. I’m looking forward to the honor of Sway making mornings better on Shade 45 on Sirius XM for a long time to come.”
“I’m constantly striving to be a part of winning teams and movements and Shade 45 on Sirius XM embodies this spirit,” he said in the same release. “We plan to tap into hip-hop and pop culture, global and domestic news and classic and groundbreaking new music. This is truly a labor of passion for me with two of the best at what they do, Eminem and Paul Rosenberg. We plan to make more history!”
Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music has inked an exclusive long-term worldwide label agreement with Island Def Jam Music Group. The first release under the terms of the new agreement is Big Sean’s Finally Famous, cementing the Detroit, Michigan up-and-comer as G.O.O.D. Music’s flagship artist.
“G.O.O.D. Music is an exciting new chapter in the long and successful association of Kanye West and Island Def Jam,” said Barry Weiss, Chairman and COO of Universal Motown Republic Group and IDJMG. “As a recording artist and a producer over the past eight years, there is no one who has made a greater impression on the game than Kanye. We look forward to working closely with the new and established artists that he will be bringing to G.O.O.D. Music, which is already off to an impressive start with Big Sean.”
Previously, G.O.O.D. Music was described as a “family and like a production company.” Last year, GLC told HipHopDX that “you get a distribution deal and if you’re a G.O.O.D Music artist, then you come out on G.O.O.D Music and the distribution deal.”
Kanye will continue to serve as a core recording artist on Def Jam Records. “Kanye’s genius has been proven time and time again on records and onstage,” said Steve Bartels, President and COO of IDJMG. “He not only pours it out for himself, but he has made the difference with his presence on innumerable projects with other artists who are indebted to him. Kanye is an integral core member of the IDJ family, and G.O.O.D. Music continues his unselfish tradition of bringing along great new artists to the forefront.”

Were you unfamiliar with that “Big Meech” guy who Rick Ross thought he was on the song “Blowin’ Money Fast (BMF),” don’t worry, Program Pictures plans to explain who Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his Black Mafia Family are and what they were all about. The company has acquired the motion picture rights to the story of the Detroit-based drug-trafficking empire created by “Big Meech”, who entered the hip-hop music scene through BMF Entertainment.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Program’s L.T. Hutton will produce with Morgan Creek’s David Robinson. Both are also producing the Tupac Shakur , which will be directed by Antoine Fuqua and starts production later this year.
“We have a passion and enthusiasm in bringing Big Meech’s story to the big screen,” commented Hutton. “We’re working closely with Meech and Tammy Cowins to make sure every aspect of the story is done correctly. Over the upcoming months, we’ll be working on getting a script together so we can begin filming as early as next year.”
