Andre Harrell is a living legend in the entertainment industry.
He’s responsible for the careers of many of today’s largest stars including Mary J. Blige and Diddy, who was once Harrell’s intern.
In the late 1980s, Harrell founded Uptown Records whose acts included Heavy D & The Boyz, Guy, Jodeci, and Blige. The label was known for being at the forefront of the New Jack Swing movement, pumping out hit after hit.
