Bryan Leach’s Polo Grounds Music (PGM) has entered into a long-term extension with RCA Records. The partnership, now in its 9th year, is the longest hip-hop/urban music joint venture in RCA’s history.

Within eight short years, Polo Grounds Music has garnered global recognition by not only dominating the Urban and Rhythmic charts, but has also held strong positioning on the Latin and Pop charts. Signing critically acclaimed artists like Grammy nominated A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg and Latin Grammy Award winner Pitbull, the New York based record-breaking imprint boasts sales of well over 70 million singles and 12 million albums worldwide. The releases over the years have also included multi-platinum singles from Hurricane Chris ("A Bay Bay") as well as releases by Yo Gotti.

Polo Grounds Music is also expanding its executive team with the recent appointment of Motisola Zulu as General Manager, additionally Derrick "Big Teach" Turton and Amy Johnson will hold Vice President positions respectively. More staff announcements will be made in the near future as PGM adds to its creative team.

Leach comments on his historic partnership: These past 8 years have been exciting for Polo Grounds Music in launching the careers of A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Yo Gotti & Pitbull, and we’re loving the future challenges of breaking more new artists as well as exploring more ways to better serve our roster. Peter & Tom have been great supporters and partners and the executive team and roster of talent at RCA is unmatched.

RCA CEO Peter Edge comments, "We are excited about the extension of the partnership between Polo Grounds Music and RCA. The breadth of amazing artists signed to PGM is a shining example of Bryan's keen intuition to discover and develop talent that will resonate with fans for years to come."

RCA President & COO Tom Corson continues, "Over the past 8 years PGM/RCA has developed a proven track record of chart-topping, multi-platinum selling hits and we look forward to enjoying continued success with Bryan and the PGM team.”
