Sony Starts Urban Music Division

Under the new leadership of Andrew Lack, Sony Music has formed a new music division to develop new hip-hop artists.

division will include rap, hi-hop and R&B-tinged pop. McPherson will report to Sony Music
president Don Ienner.

Among Sony's urban acts are Destiny's Child, Ginuwine, Killer Mike, Macy Gray
and Nas.
