Imperial

Profile:
Do not confuse with the European label Imperial (2).
US indie label formed by Lew Chudd in 1946 in Hollywood. The label was sold to Liberty Records, Inc. in 1964. Liberty was purchased by United Artists in 1968 and then UA was bought by EMI in 1979. The catalogue and brand are now owned by Universal Music Group. The name was re-launched in 2006 when entrepreneur and music industry veteran, Neil Levine joined Imperial to establish a unit focused on the independent, urban music market. Imperial is a full service, label group specializing in artist, brand development, releasing critically acclaimed albums from Fat Joe, Evidence (of Dilated Peoples), Jin, and Anthony Hamilton (previously unreleased tracks).
