"Pretty" Tony Butler's Music Specialists Inc. may be Florida's first black-owned, million-record-selling independent record label.
With Butler's confidence in his ear for hits, he launched a studio in the heart of Liberty City and took on the recording industry. At its peak, the company owned its own pressing plant and ran it 24/7 to keep up with demand for its product.
In the past couple of years, Butler has continued his success, writing for Flo Rida, Sean Kingston, Juicy J, Pitbull, Will I Am and Tiësto. Here's what Pretty Tony had to say about his old Party Down DJs crew, working with songwriters, and his newest act, the Nex Generation (TNG).
