The ascension of Luke Records also continues on the business side. The hometown label, distributed by giant Atlantic, is birthing records the way rabbits issue bunnies. The label is broadening its base by releasing nonrap acts (such as Trinere) and also by signing non-Miami acts (such as New York femmes Jiggie Gee and Pre C.I.S.E. MC and Atlanta's True 2). The label has also hired a chief operating officer, Wayman "Slack" Johnson, whom Campbell calls "the piece of the puzzle that completes the picture."
But the big news is the impending Sports Weekend. The 2 Live Crew? They're back.
