"I want the young women in this industry to know how to build and take up space by running their talent as a business on their own and realizing they do not need male influence to lead the way."
DALLAS, TX, September 07, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Music lovers around the world have been mesmerized by the sounds of the dirty south label entitled "No Limit" created by mastermind Percy Miller also known as "Master P" for over a decade. With hits like "Make 'Em Say" and "How Ya Do Dat", the brand skyrocketed in the 90's into the two thousands making it the home of southern culture with home artists such Mystikal, Fiend, Soulja Slim and more.
Fast forward to present, the man behind the magic "KLC The Drum Major" has decided to give back to the women of the music industry by creating a label that is for women, by women entitled E3 also known as "Empress Empire". This label will bring an influencer style concept to a very traditional culture by allowing artists to work with iconic producers via label network while ensuring their independence.
The traditional way of music has been eliminated by signing artists to a requested number of albums without ownership of master copies and more. E3 offers artists a chance to develop, work with top producers, obtain management, build the right audience, gain brand partnerships and make hit singles and EP's on a short term basis.
KLC The Drum Major has appointed industry phenom Saadiq Larue to lead the record label. Her tenacity and innovative mindset has given today's industry vets a holy grail when it comes to branding, bookings and creating studio vibes. With iconic sessions created with legends such as Tip Harris (T.I.), David Banner and Fabo (D4L), Saadiq Larue have brought a mix of talent, sound and creative showcasing to many artists of today.
The duo are in search of amazing raw talent to bring into the light with a nationwide talent search with the grand prize including an EP deal with full utilization of the brand network and ending with a large televised showcase to be released mid 2022.
The tour will kick off at the legendary Kansas City venue "The Epicurean" on October 11-13th, 2021 at 1pm. The entrance fee for artists is $50.00 while the tickets to the taped private auditions will be $25.00 for spectators to gain an up close and personal view of the talent with a chance to meet the surprise celebrity judges.
