Murder Inc Co-Founder Chris Gotti Takes ADD Ventures Music Tour To Midwest


Legends in the Hip Hop industry, the founders of Murder Inc Records, Chris Gotti and Irv Gotti have reached the pinnacle of success in the music world, while helping guide the careers of industry giants like Ja Rule, Ashanti, DMX, Jay-Z and many others. In the new millennium, the duo have branched out of music, adding to their respective resumes with monumental deals in film, television and beyond. Expanding his business portfolio, Chris has launched a lucrative hedge fund and insurance companies, while also seeing success with his very own sports management firm. With over 30 years of experience Chris Gotti has his sights set on the future of the music industry having launched the new global distribution platform ADD VENTURES MUSIC.

Assimilating to the new digital age of content consumption, ADD VENTURES MUSIC serves as the ideal avenue for independent Artists to gain access to everything they might need in order to get their music to the masses. The company’s members own & operate their music but with the help of Gotti, have full digital distribution just like a major recording label. This platform provides services that allow members to have their music seen and heard, while also assisting when it comes to distributing their material, monetizing their streaming, having the opportunity to get their music licensed on network television, radio promotion and everything else necessary to guide their careers to the next level. AVM member Boogiie Byrd is a prime example. With Chris Gotti’s assistance, the Washington D.C. native was able to get his single “Doing Something Right,” on the Billboard charts using Non-traditional radio services.

The intent of the company’s digital platform is to empower and educate all independent artists. ADD’s Summer East Coast Tour was a complete success and gave all members an opportunity to come on tour to be seen and heard in front of new fans in new markets all while learning the ropes when it comes to touring and performing. With the fall season already in full swing, Chris Gotti & ADD VENTURES MUSIC are heading out on another tour but this time they are headed to the Mid West #AVMNextUpTour.

SFPL’s Artist Spotlight: Scott King – “Get At Me Dog” (DMX Freestyle)


Since he stepped foot on the music scene, Scott King has made a ferocious climb from his starting point and propelled himself into the recording studios with some of the biggest names of hip hop culture.

From collaborations with production legends like DJ Premiere and NO ID; From Kool & Dre to Bryan Michael Cox, King has a unique style and genuine substance that the pillars of rap music have recognized in these times where true hip hop talent is deemed almost non-existent. This truth has led to musical projects with great artists such as Red Café, Anthony Hamilton, Jeremih, Bun-B and Jadakiss all on his upcoming EP he is currently developing with multi-platinum producer Drumma Boy.

Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Scott King has drawn inspiration from rap icons such as Big Daddy Kane and Run DMC and has molded a style of his own that dares to stand out above the others while delivering messages one could easily compare to the legendary Tupac Shakur.

Scott King’s prowess has seen him even into contracts with companies like Procter & Gamble (Fortune 500) and sportswear giant, Under Armor to name a few, and it has become clear that this young man is nothing short of ready to impact the world of hip hop in ways that only a handful of rappers have in the past.

Purely dedicated to hard work and family, Scott King is finally at that inevitable place in his life and craft where the world must hear him. Now and for decades to come.

Check out his dope freestyle in honor of veteran rapper DMX below:

DMX Arrested AGAIN…In New York City Right Before His Performance

More information has been reported on DMX‘s recent arrest, as to why he did not make it to the Master of Ceremony show at Radio City Hall, where he was scheduled to perform.

Long story short, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told PIX 11 that DMX was actually taken into custody for “several issues outstanding.” Sheesh.

Reasons for Arrest:

1) Earl Simmons was issued an arrest warrant by the Erie County Family Court for $400,000 worth of unpaid child support, the spokesman said.

2) Another arrest warrant was issued to Simmons, this time by the city of White Plains for bail jumping. The city of Yonkers is accusing the veteran rapper of being an aggravated unlicensed motor vehicle operator; and a criminal complaint out of Newark, N.J., names DMX as a suspect in an April 5th robbery at a gas station in that city, the sheriff’s office said.

He was arrested at 10:30 p.m. in Manhattan by sheriff’s office deputies.

Things aren’t looking good for DMX at this point. Not sure how he will work his way out of this one.

More information to come as story develops.




Earl Simmons aka DMX just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. It looks like the veteran rapper has been arrested again, right in New York City.

Pix 11 reported, that the 44-year-old rapper and Yonkers native has been arrested in NYC [today] Friday night, according to the New York County Sheriff’s Office.

What prompted the arrest is in question as the details are limited at the moment.

DMX was slated to perform at 8 p.m. at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan for the Masters of Ceremony concert featuring Shabba Ranks, The LOX, Rakim, Ma$e, Pete Rock, & CL Smooth, Brand Nubian and Das EFX.

Unfortunately, DMX didn’t hit the stage.

More details to follow.
