2. Cinematic Music Group
Star Player(s): Big K.R.I.T. and Joey Bada$$
Jonny Shipes is a pretty smart dude. Snagging up two of the premiere up-and-comers in the game for his Cinematic Music Group imprint not only proved to be a good look, but essentially put him in a win-win situation. Joey Bada$$ and Big K.R.I.T. are on two separate yet equally successful roads to stardom, and having them both rep the CMG name is a great look for the brand. If you need more proof, check out K.R.I.T.’s Kings Remembered In Time and Joey’s Summer Knights EP, for further assurance of their greatness.
