Garnet Reid found his niche promoting records on the label side of the music business. He became well known as one of the best promoters in the business, building many rap careers.
Garnet has always been able to connect the dots. When asked what he does for a living, his answer is “I professionally hang out and connect people and things!” After many years of successfully promoting records for major labels– for example, Garnet is one of the people that helped launch Cash Money and he quickly succeeded with Juvenile, BG, Big Tymers, Birdman (Baby), and Lil Wayne. Garnet has built a lot of stars in the music business in his career because he has always taken chances and has found creative ways to get the job done, no matter how challenging or impossible it might seem.
