So So Def Recordings
So So Def Recordings, founded by Grammy Award-winning producer Jermaine Dupri in 1989, is a record label based in Atlanta, Georgia. With over 400 million records sold to date, Jermaine has collaborated with an extensive list of artists such as Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, Nas, Kanye West, Notorious B.I.G., Lil’ Kim, Run DMC, and more. In 2011, he launched Global 14, which consists of more than 1,100 groups who share common interests such as fashion, hip hop, and R&B. Jermaine is the Executive Producer of the unscripted Lifetime series “The Rap Game,” and recently starred in the BET docu-series “Music Moguls,” alongside Snoop Dogg, Birdman and Damon Dash. Jermaine also currently has a recurring role on the TV series “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta.”
Jermaine has been a longtime personal friend since 2000, when we first collaborated while representing *NSYNC. I’m incredibly proud of Jermaine’s extraordinary success with The Rap Game franchise, and his continued material impact on the future of hip hop, R&B, and other music genres. AXW will be working with Jermaine and his team on partnership marketing and business development initiatives.

PS LIFESTYLE’S AMERICAN SENIOR MAGAZINE PARTNERS WITH TOWNSQUARE MEDIA FOR “SALUTE TO SENIORS”
AXW conceived and facilitated a partnership between PS Lifestyle and Townsquare Media.

Each senior’s personal story is then broadcast over the airwaves to the station’s weekly listeners, as well as promoted on the stations’ website and social media pages. At the end of the program, featured seniors receive a one year subscription to the magazine and will be honored by the partners at a special luncheon hosted by Townsquare Media.
