6 Tre G Inks a Deal (Huntsvegas Humpday Newz)


          6treG_FrontCard_1v.2Moonstone Records has entered into a joint venture with Battery Records/JIVE Label Group to market and distribute, Alabama native, 6 Tre G. His music is often a reflection of the perseverance it’s taken him to get here, repping the downtrodden far and wide but newcomer he is not.  

      After a short period on Warner Brothers where he never released a record as a result of the merger with AOL, Tre formed his own imprint, Darkhouse Music Group, setting the stage for a major return. Concentrating on staying off the streets, his carefree party jam “On A Roll” cleared the path to a new beginning. “I put that to radio and it took over Huntsville,” 6 Tre says with a smile. “I was getting attacked in stores. People were singing my song to me at my shows. They loved the record.” And the Industry was soon to follow.  

      His new single, “Fresh” brings Tre back to a familiar place, playing off a sample off “La Di Da Di the first rap record he ever memorized. “I wanna give people something they can relate to. Then the people that I have a like mind with are gonna end up being my fans because I’m talking what they’re living or wanna do.” 

      Says Neil Levine, General Manager and Senior Vice President of Battery, “We are very happy to be in business with Julia Kadarusman and Moonstone Records with their first artist 6 Tre G.” 

      Moonstone Records is an independent label with a mission to bring quality music, particularly artist’s self generated work, to the world.  Founding partner Julia Kadarusman is a long term record industry executive.  Before launching Moonstone Records and its sister company Ruby Musik Management, she was SVP/Head of Marketing Jive Records/Sony Music.   “Tre embodies the music business 2009. He writes, produces, markets and promotes his records by himself with his local partners,“ says Julia Kadasusman,  “Current technology allows him to be a self contained entrepreneur, but it is his ears and talent that make it all hum. Bringing Tre to Battery for national radio promotion, marketing and distribution is a natural fit given that Battery itself is built on independent spirit.”       

      Battery Records is an imprint under Sony Music Entertainment’s RCA/JIVE Label Group umbrella formed in July 2008 to develop and nurture young urban hip hop talent, in an age where such development is more crucial and necessary than ever. Under the leadership of industry veteran Neil Levine, Battery’s mission is to uncover and cultivate organic young talent, thereby creating an indispensable niche in the marketplace.
