Hey L.A. Reid, the 80’s called…

shyne-la-belize

…and they want their blissfully oblivious executives back.

UPDATE: Here’s the video of L.A. talking to the local press in Belize.

News 7 out of Belize is reporting that LA Reid flew down there in a private jet to secure Mr. Barrow’s signature on his (allegedly) hefty new Def Jam contract. Not for nothing, but this is the type of excessive shit that has the music industry in the state it’s in now. Really? You couldn’t have just faxed the shit down there? After a quick perusal of  these two links , I’d (conservatively) estimate the cost of this little publicity stunt at somewhere around $25,000 and that’s not even including the flight back and incidentals. And let’s not even talk about the environmental impact.

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that IDJ is gonna end up regretting this whole agreement. I don’t even think they’re gonna recoup the cost of this excursion, much less that ridiculous contract.  What year do they think it is? And what artist do they have Shyne confused with? Last time I checked, Godfather Buried Alive only went Gold and that was with a whole big attempted murder trial and conviction that involved Puff and Jennifer Lopez. I’d like to see how the marketing department plans on topping that in this day and age.

Hey look, I know this trip won’t bankrupt Def Jam, and I’m sure they have a budget for this type of fuckery (no doubt to be indirectly charged back to Shyne somehow), but it’s the principle of the thing. What kind of message does this send? If I’m a stockholder and I see this type of shit I have to wonder what these guys are doing with my money.

My guestimate of the first week #s for Shyne’s comeback album:  30K.

  15. Va Slim Says:

    Flying to Belize to get contract signed isn’t excessive. If you are an exec and you are making a “7 figure” investment, then you go and make sure the deal is inked. Any good business man making that type of investment is going to follow thru…..The only fuckery was them signing shyne to a 7 figure deal. I agree with your 30k projection…give or take 10k….

  17. ELGINDOTCOM Says:

    I agree with your view Eskay but I believe DefJam looks at that trip as part of their marketng campaign. They want to present the image as if this signing was so significant that it warranted the trip down there to secure him as an artist.

    Now I know damn well, this deal dont mean shit. Shyne buzz been over before his first day in jail… Money wasted!

  18. BroliC FontS Says:

    The deal looks crazy, but when you think about it, Shyne has international market potential….hell, the publicity stunt was in Belize.

    Honestly Es, why did you say that? Cause I know you weren’t really thinking that….

    I think Def jam knows what they’re doing….maybe their goals are not the same goals we think of or have in mind, but I think they know. And yes, Shyne has international market potential.

    Personally, I was looking forward to hearing new music from shyne….but now I don’t know…and it’s not just cause I saw the pictures in this post.

    Whats the huge obsession these execs have with Shyne.

    Sylvia Rhone, Lyor and Diddy used to froth at the mouth at the mention of Shyne before he was signed.

    Then after he left Bad Boy he signed with Def Jam for $10 mil.

    Now a 3rd bidding war with a 7 figure contract…

    Shyne is good but Gold at best

    Believe there will be a BET type reality to show like T.I Road to Redemption

    An international tour around Caribbean because Shyne is banned from US and UK

    Keyshia Cole,Akon,Barrington Levy etc are his only acceptable potential crossovers. Shyne on a hip pop track will alienate his fanbase.

    He might get a salary of $100000 after its all said and done. Remember he is an ex con, how many ex cons you know can walk out of jail with a $100000 a year salary?

    But when its all said and done, LA Reid has failed…

    well that’s true, which is why that wasn’t the basis of the post. I figured somebody would care about that aspect, so I mentioned it. the point i’m trying to make is that the whole thing was excessive, financially and enviormentally. I’m sure people charter jets every day for more trivial shit than this. but when it’s a corporation doing it, for an clearly misguided investment, and turns it into a publicity stunt, it’s going overboard. but whatever, like I said, I’d fly private too if I had it like that.
