L A Reid Short Bio

Antonio “L.A.” Reid (born June 7, 1956 in Cincinnati, Ohio) is an executive of the American music industry, and a three-time Grammy Award winner, best known as co-founder of LaFace Records. She is responsible for multi-platinum sales of stars such as Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, P! Nk, TLC, Usher, Ciara, Outkast, Dido, Avril Lavigne, Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Rihanna.

Reid and Kenny Babyface Edmonds, both members of the R & B band of the 80s The Deele, founded LaFace in 1989, and published their products through Arista Records. In 2000, LaFace merged with Arista Records with Reid being promoted to president and director of Arista Records, and hired his first unknown artist on Arista, punk singer Avril Lavigne. Continuing his work with Arista, he was appointed director of The Island Def Jam Music Group in 2004. Reid named rapper Jay-Z as president of Def Jam Recordings, and returned the success to singers Mariah Carey with the 2005 album, The Emancipation of Mimi and Jennifer Lopez with their 2011 album Love?.

He is also currently Director / CEO of Sony Music Epic. His son Aaron Reid acted in an episode of My Super Sweet Sixteen and was the president and CEO of Def Jam Records until 2011, when he signed to appear as a judge in the 2011 US version. X factor.
