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.
