Delante Murphy is an Empire Distribution A&R executive who enjoys Yoga, fine cigars, Grey Goose Vodka and red meat! Of course there is a lot more to this man than that. Originally from the Washington, D.C. suburb of Oxen Hill, Maryland, the Atlanta based music executive has quite the storied CV. Early days working at Def Jam Recordings on projects with Redman, Method Man and ONYX to being instrumental in the global rise of Trey Songz are just a couple of major accomplishments spanning more than two decades working in the music industry. Over the course of an hour and half with Delante, our conversation went in many different directions including business practices of yesteryear versus today, discovering talent, Go-Go records, books and Sweeny Todd.
