EMPIRE BEATS PITCH – with Founder and CEO Ghazi Shami

Ghazi Shami, founder and CEO of EMPIRE, developed a business model that disrupted the traditional music industry approach towards label, distribution and publishing services. His company played an important part in the early careers of future icons like Kendrick Lamar, Sage The Gemini, Migos, Rich Homie Quan and Anderson .Paak. EMPIRE’s unique way of doing business attracted legends like Snoop Dogg and Too $hort and new stars like XXXTentacion and BROCKHAMPTON. At ADE Beats 2019 Ghazi Shami will be scouting beats for a range of new projects and share his A&R insights with producers and industry professionals alike. The EMPIRE BEATS PITCH is the ultimate opportunity for producers to present their music to one of the major taste and decision makers in the current industry. Imagine yourself in his office. Now it’s up to you! Talent: bring your own audio device.
