300 Entertainment is an American independent record label founded by Lyor Cohen, Roger Gold, Kevin Liles and Todd Moscowitz. The label is distributed by Atlantic Records. The label currently includes Fetty Wap, Young Thug, Rich the Kid, Shy Glizzy, Rejjie Snow, Alex Winston, Migos, Conrad Sewell, Highly Suspect, Cobi, Meg Mac, Dae Dae, Coheed and Cambria, ASTR, Tate Kobang, Mainland, Maggie Lindemann, The Hunna and Demo Taped.
Cohen resigned as chairman and chief executive officer of Warner Music Group’s recorded music operation to start 300 with Todd Moscowitz, ex-Warner Bros president, Kevin Liles, ex-EVP Warner Music, and Roger Gold, former SVP of the office of the chairman and CEO at Warner Music. Cohen, Liles, and Moscowitz had also worked together at Def Jam, which Cohen ran in the '80s and '90s.
It was announced on March 26, 2014, that singer Eric Bellinger signed to 300 Entertainment. In April 2014, Atlantic Records A&R DJ Drama stated that Atlanta rapper Young Thug was signed to 300 Entertainment, In June 2014, it was revealed that Atlanta hip hop group Migos were also signed to the label. In early 2014, Lyor Cohen quietly signed Conrad Sewell after he knew that Sewell was passed on by most of the major labels. The day after signing with 300, the Australian singer received offers from virtually every label that passed on him for in some cases "Well over $1 million."
The company is getting backing from a wide range of investors; Google (which has put in around $5 million), investment firm Columbus Nova, Israeli-American hedge fund billionaire Noam Gottesman’s Toms Capital, former Warner Music digital chief Alex Zubillaga, Kemado Records' co-founder Andres Santo Domingo and several other investors. The investment agreements were pulled together by media investment banker Aryeh Bourkoff and Ori Winitze] of LionTree.
In February 2014, 300 signed a deal to partner with Twitter that will allow 300 full access to the company’s data—including information unavailable to the public, such as tags that reveal the location from which a tweet was sent, in order to discover artists at an early stage and help develop them.
