2012 has been the year of the come-up for songwriters and producers. Add Salaam Remi to the list of production mavens getting ready to take the corner office at record labels.
According to Billboard.com, Sony Music Entertainment is expected to name Salaam Remi as executive VP of A&R/production. Unlike the Young Jeezy's and The-Dream's of the world, Remi's reach will stretch beyond urban as he will work across all platforms.
Remi's banner year culminated with the executive production of Nas' critical and commercial success, Life Is Good. He's also secured production credits on Alicia Keys' "Girl On Fire" and Miguel's Kaleidoscope Dream.
