Don Cannon Named Def Jam A&R VP

Chaz-Ortiz-Spectre-9

The Cannon! Don Cannon has been appointed as Def Jam’s Vice President A&R. Cannon will be based in Atlanta and work in conjunction with head A&R, Karen Kwak and President & COO, Steve Bartels. Says Cannon:

“A music person can only dream about being at Def Jam, the most important  hip-hop destination in the world. I feel I have a cutting edge vision for where the culture and hip-hop are heading and I’m excited to be joining the team.  I’m already working 24/7 to drive the innovation of music forward and I’m confident we’ll land some big successes in the very near future.”

I’ll keep my fingers cross and hope this means Cannon will oversee Jeezy’s next album. Their chemistry is like weird science.

    Step in the right direction. I like Cannon! DefJam just needs to stop chasing pop and the staff over there has been doing that for a good 6,7 years over there now. Get back to Hip Hop

    “A music person can only dream about being at Def Jam.”

    ^ YEAH……20 yrs ago. These Def Jam appointments appear pointless. Def Jam is no where near the company it once was.
