Blige. 

“At Warner Music the independent spirit is part of our story, our DNA and our vision," reads a quote from WMG CEO of Recorded Music Max Lousada. "We’re creating the environment for original artists, entrepreneurs and labels to pioneer the future of music. The 300 team has built an extraordinary brand, attracted a dynamic community of artists and led the way for a new generation of labels. We’ll bring their artists and team a whole universe of opportunities to ignite passionate fanbases and develop long-term careers. We’re very happy to welcome 300 fully into the Warner community of labels and Kevin to his new role on our senior management team.”
