L.A.'s kid working at Epic

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Every day I think about what [his father] told me as a kid, ‘You gotta do what you gotta do so you can do what you wanna do. I take that every day, think about it and apply it… It wasn’t until a couple of years ago, I became interested in the business side. I began working with several artists, I know what’s hot and what’s not, so maybe A&R is something I’d like to do. I feel like I’ve been doing this my whole life, just without the title… My dad always used to teach me, ‘Don’t worry about anything else. Just continue to do your thing.’ And that’s really all I focus on. My parents are my biggest support. I’m blessed to have them. I don’t pay attention to the pressure. People are always going to have their own opinion… Last night, I was in the studio with Timbaland, just talking about a whole bunch of things. I’m in a great space.” — Aaron Reid, the 23-year-old son of Epic chief L.A. Reid, who has been doing A&R at the label for the last 18 months, in The Hollywood Reporter. His signings include rapper Vinny Cha$e, artist/producer Travis Scott and neo-soul singer Jude, and he’s also about to release an EP of his own music. (5/15a)
