Over the past three years, Thomas has overseen the breakthrough of Fredo Bang, the Coming 2 America soundtrack, the comebacks of Fabolous and Jadakiss and the rollout of DMX’s posthumous album, EXODUS. Current Thomas marketing projects include records by Kanye West, Big Sean, Hit-Boy, LL Cool J, 2 Chainz, Jeezy and more.
