Back in March, music mogul L.A. Reid parted ways with Island Def Jam to take his talents to a new stage; The X Factor. After a two month-long hiatus from the industry, Reid is back in the executive seat, this time as chairman of Epic Label Group as part of the label's reconstruction.

In addition to adding Reid to the roster, Epic will also be taking Jive Records under it's wing, bringing him back into working distance with familiar faces such as Usher and Pink.
