Tyson Quotes

"Cus always strived. He said:'You can be the champ'. Even at a young age. And I believed in him. I developed that kind of confidence in him. And we just made it 'That was the destiny'. No matter whatever happen. And he discussed times that he wasn't feeling well and that he doesn't think he would be around, but he said 'No matter what...the job must go on'."

Mike Tyson News: Tyson To Start His Own Label

Posted on Tuesday, April 27, 2004 @ 07:36:47 UTC by tysonian

According to the New York Times, Mike Tyson will be launching his own label, Tyson Records, and has already lined-up several acts, including the Baltimore group Protege, and ex-LaFace Records singer Donnie, to sign deals with the new company.

"I'm into the music scene so intensely," Tyson told The Times. "For 20 years, I've known about all these rappers; Grandmaster Flash, Grand Wizard Theodore, people a lot of rappers now aren't even aware of."

"Iron" Mike also said that Tyson Records was currently in the midst of assembling its roster of performers, producers and executives, and was in negotiations with several major labels to provide distribution and marketing support for the forthcoming albums. In a throwback to his boxing days, Tyson plans to unveil his new label at a press conference to be held at a Las Vegas casino within the next two months.

Tyson isn't new in the rapper world. He is close friends with many rappers (including the late Tupac Shakur who died after visiting a Mike Tyson fight) and even worked with rappers before. In 1998 Mike Tyson recorded a track together with rapper Canibus called "Second Round KO".

Update 1-5-2004: This rumour later proved wrong. See the second post above
