On May 11, it was reported that L.A. Reid would be leaving his position as chairman of Epic Records. Reid had been with Epic for six years, having joined the label back in July of 2011. Now, according to Page Six, DJ Khaled is reportedly making a petition to replace Reid as the Chairman of Epic Records. The other candidates for the position are more conventional executive types, like Sony Music UK’s Jason Iley and RCA’s Tom Carson. An insider revealed that Khaled said, “I make more happen than anyone in the game, why would I not be considered to run the label?’” Head over to Page Six for a more detailed report of this.
