Harlem, New York producer/rapper Ron Browz recently revealed to AllHipHop.com that he has split from his label, Universal Motown.
According to Browz, he could not see eye-to-eye with the label, despite experiencing success in 2009, including two BET Award nominations for hit records he recorded.
Browz, who produced classic tracks by rappers like Big L, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, DMX and Nas, was signed to Universal Motown via his own imprint, Ether Boy Records.
Since signing with Universal Motown in September of 2008, Browz produced three massive hit singles: the collaborative track “Pop Champagne” featuring Jim Jones, “Jumpin’ Out the Window” and “Arab Money” featuring Busta Rhymes.
“Currently me and Universal decided it was best for us to part ways as far as business, because little creative differences,” Browz told AllHipHop.com exclusively. “I love Sylvia [Rhone]. Sylvia was the first person to give me an opportunity to show the world what I could as far as being an artist.”
Browz, born Rondell Turner, is continuing on with his career, while negotiating with various recording companies for his next deal.
The rapper recently shot a video for his new single “$20 Dollarz,” which should be released in the next two weeks.
The remix to the track features OJ Da Juiceman, Jim Jones, Shawty Lo, Nicki Minaj and a new verse by fellow Harlemite, Mase.
On the production side, Browz recently produced “She’s A Killer” on Ghostface’s new album The Wizard of Poetry, Nicki Minaj’s new track “Get Crazy” and an upcoming tune by crooner Bobby Valentino.
Browz, who used the controversial Autotune technology on his two biggest hits, as well as the track he just produced for Ghostface’s Wizard album, shared his opinion on the voice enhancing effect.
“People criticized it, but you can’t deny hot records,” Browz told AllHipHop.com. “All these records was crazy in the club. And the funny thing is, after D.O.A., it seemed like more Autotune records came out after the record came out.”
Ron Browz is currently working on his major label solo debut.
