After much consideration, I have decided to leave my position as
Chairman of the Island Def Jam Music Group.
I have always thrived on growth and the next great challenge, and I
look forward with much enthusiasm to what the future holds.
I am extremely proud of our beautiful roster and all we have
accomplished in my seven years with IDJ.  We continue to have
incredible success together with today’s most phenomenal superstars –
Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Bon Jovi, Jennifer
Lopez, Ne-Yo, Rick Ross, The Killers, The-Dream, Chrisette Michele,
Jeezy and Ludacris to name a few.

I want to thank all of you for your amazing contributions.
With Warm Regards –
