[Video] John Monopoly Talks Possibly Retiring From Music Management, Monopoly Fest 2015 & More
Earlier today, Music veteran John Monopoly presented The Go ILL A&R Major Label Showcase in his hometown, Chicago. The event took place in the City's West Loop at Red Kiva and it was put on to highlight new aspiring talent and it featured Executives from major labels along with A&R's as well.
During the event, our very own Bri Smith caught up with Monop and talked one-on-one with him about his Go ILL Showcase, being an advocate in Game/Young Thug beef and his plans for the future.
"So I'm doing a lot of stuff in the digital space and I'm kinda moving away from music management. I'm probably going to be retiring from management and the whole label thing on my 40th birthday. So, really just consulting and empowering young managers, young labels, and young executives. And that's really my passion now and doing a lot of work in the community as well."
John Monopoly also talked about his upcoming event, Monopoly Fest 2015, which is coming up in September. Check full interview below and catch Go ILL A&R Major Label Showcase on our blog.
