Vision, foundation, passion and drive are just a few of the many key components required to build and manage a successful record label. From humble beginnings, to now flourishing a promising name for itself, Hendrix Music Group is rapidly on its way to becoming the recording label industry’s next big highlight! Headed by CEO, Jimmy Hendrix, HMG is one of the few recording companies that takes pride in bringing the best out of one’s artistry. Hailing from East Oakland California, Hendrix has years of experience, fresh marketing strategies, and representing first-rate artists to take their music to the next level. Inspired by hip-hop media mogul Russell Simmons and west-coast rapper Too Short, Hendrix knew from an early age that he wanted to make his mark in the music industry.
At age 20, Hendrix became a survivor of gun violence and now uses a wheelchair, but he did not let the circumstances hold him back from following his dreams. After discovering his own zeal behind the scenes working with artists, producers and managers over the years, it became clear that his own motivation, optimism and eye for undiscovered potential would lead him to launch HMG. Hendrix takes an honest and straightforward approach to successfully managing small and large acts which include artists such as Kimbo Takeoff and Kooley Sanchez. Hendrix has developed the skills of networking, building influence, and providing proper outlet promotion for the artists HMG represents, but now realizes it’s time to leverage himself and tell his own unique story.
Dedication to talent, entrepreneurial pride, and overcoming obstacles are only a piece of the perspective when it comes to the mission of Hendrix Music Group. In recent years, the HMG team started to make their presence known in the music business between the Atlanta Metro area and the Bay area, while planning to expand to different cities and markets nationwide. Hendrix is determined to make HMG a household name that’s a force to be reckoned with by staying true to his focused business mindset, and natural born hustling spirit. Hendrix has no choice but to leave a legacy, which is one of his many dreams that must be fulfilled.
In 2021, HMG artist Kimbo Takeoff released his highly anticipated project titled Galen Way Baby which includes standout tracks such as “Pop My Shit” and “Fly N***a” with OG Bandz. Just this week Kimbo Takeoff also released his long-awaited video for his single “Cream” filmed on Galen Way and now streaming on YouTube.
