3 Canadians Named In Billboard’s Indie Power Players Ranking

By FYI Staff

Entertainment One Global President Chris Taylor, Reservoir Media Management co-founder and CEO Golnar Khosrowshahi, and ole CEO and co-founder Robert Ott make the list alongside such luminaries as Daniel Glass and Scott Borchetta.


The feature profiles the individuals with quotes that include Taylor’s illuminating statement as follows:

“One of the largest myths being perpetuated is the ‘irrelevance’ of the record company,” says Taylor, whose independent Entertainment One develops and distributes music, film, TV and, most recently, live content with the March acquisition of Round Room Entertainment, an event production company. Adds Taylor: “We are going to have a whole generation of musicians who [will] miss their opportunity to excel by declining the assistance of well-trained, well-financed companies that can really help a developing act take things to the next level.”

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
