TSR Exclusive: Barry Hankerson (Barry Hankerson) has brought us talents, including his niece, the late Aaliyah, who is reviving his old record company Blackground Records, renamed Blackground Records 2.0.
Since Autumn Marini, the first lady of Blackground Records 2.0, filmed her first video before the brand’s launch, many streets in Atlanta were closed on Saturday.
Barry specifically talked to The Shade Room about the rebirth of his brand-which allowed us to obtain Timbaland’s “Shock Value II” in 2009, and then he said that this is incomparable to any artist.
Barry told us that he moved Blackground to Atlanta, where he met many talented artists, but they couldn’t find a way to spread their music. This inspired him to bring Blackground back to Blackground Records 2.0 and do what they did, which he said was to promote young artists.
“Now is a good time to promote young talents,” Barry said.
He was particularly attracted by Autumn Marini. He said that she has a complete package and cannot be compared with other artists, both in the past and in the present, because she is on her own path.
“She’s beautiful, she writes her own songs,” Barry boasted. “I can’t resist working with her. I can’t resist working for her”
He continued, “She is completely her own artist. She is very primitive.”
Barry added that Autumn Marini’s latest project will be an “explosive album.” “This is an incredible job,” he said.
Blackground Records was responsible for finding some of our other favorites, including Tank and Jojo, and Toni Braxton’s “Libra” album, which included her hit single “Please”.
