It was only a matter of time before Don Cannon was recognized for his intangible ability to co-sign an up-and-comer or give the verification of a hot track/and or project with a insight of what’s hot before it trends.
Today, Don Cannon has earned the position as Def Jam’s new A&R Vice President based in Atlanta. Cannon will work with Def Jam’s Head of A&R, Karen Kwak and President & CEO, Steve Bartels.
Below is a statement from Cannon describing a dream come true, congratulations!
“A music person can only dream about being at Def Jam, the most important hip-hop destination in the world. I feel I have a cutting edge vision for where the culture and hip-hop are heading and I’m excited to be joining the team. I’m already working 24/7 to drive the innovation of music forward and I’m confident we’ll land some big successes in the very near future.”
