Atterberry most recently worked at an event promotions company called Gridlock Group, after getting his start working in the promotions department at the fashion lines Cross Colours and Karl Kani, then moving on to Suge Knight's Death Row, former home to Snoop Dogg, Tupac and Dr. Dre. He went on to start Mergela Records and Consulting, working with producer Rodney Jerkins and comedian Chris Tucker, as well as founding the music publishing company Infusion Music Group, where he worked with the Spice Girls and Simpson.
