What You Need To Know About Def Jam's 'Undisputed' Compilation
An introduction to their new roster of artists.
It's the final result of the Def Jam A&R-led rap camp initiative, which brought 17 new artists on the legendary label into one studio to record an album together over a few months in Los Angeles. Along with Undisputed, the 15-track album, comes a full content series giving fans a diverse look at each of the artists' creative processes and sounds. The Undisputed idea is the brainchild of SVP of A&R Alexander "A.E." Edwards and EVP of A&R Steven Victor.
"One of the most important aspects of our efforts has centered around building a new roster," Def Jam CEO Paul Rosenberg said in a statement. "Together with these incredible new artists we have developed urgent, cutting-edge and truly great new music and content."
