TVT Records Bites The Dust
Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead
TVT Records officially announced that they will file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this week. Currently home to artists such as Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz, Pitbull, Ying Yang Twins, Just Jack, and others, the news wasn’t a surprise to industry veterans who watched TVT’s overall slide for the last several years.
The majority of TVT’s employees were let go and only the publishing unit, a separate entity looks like it will survive unscathed. Unfortunately, due to the independent label’s litigious nature, TVT was known more for being embroiled in law suits than for their music.
