Mark Anthony has teamed up with A&R & Talent Manager Antonio Reid, Jr
Tuff Journey Ent CEO Mark Anthony has teamed up with A&R & Talent Manager Antonio Reid, Jr. to sign and develop new recording artists. Mark is an entrepreneur who’s successes mostly stem from his tenure as a real estate and construction mogul. As an avid music fan, for years he’s been interested in making the move into the music business but hadn’t come across the right partner. That’s where Antonio comes in. Antonio, being the son of Record Mogul Antonio “L.A.” Reid, has spent the last 18 years working in the business alongside his father as a Music Publisher, A&R and talent manager. He’s been very instrumental in the development of the careers of superstar artists like Usher, DJ Khaled, Ciara, Outkast, Janelle Monae, & Rubi Rose as well as hit making songwriters and producers like Sean Garrett and The Clutch to name a few. He currently manages one of hip hop’s hottest production teams, The Loopholes and his newest signee IsThatYouArchie.
Together the two, along with Mark’s executive team, plan to find, sign, develop and release records on a new batch of Hip Hop & R&B superstars. What are they looking for in talent? you might ask. Antonio and Mark say their goal is to sign hungry, uber-talented artists who’ve just been missing the right team to give them the support, infrastructure and guidance they need to propel them to the stardom. The first artist signed under their new partnership is 22 year old Miami Native and R&B starlet Keymah. Be on the lookout for new music from her very soon.
