Block Starz Music Parts Ways With CEO, Launches New Indie Music & Television Website

Independent record label Block Starz Music LLC will celebrate its four year anniversary in January with a restructured staff and new web address. On December 24, the New Albany, Indiana-based music firm announced that its German chief executive officer, Kai Denninger, would no longer be with the company. The label's founder and president, Bayer Mack, will take over Denninger's duties, effective immediately.

“Kai Denninger will no longer be with the company,” Mack said in a brief statement posted to his personal LinkedIn profile on Christmas Eve. “Kai was instrumental in helping us build the Block Starz Music brand. He will be greatly missed and we wish him nothing but the best in all his future endeavors.”

Shortly after, Block Starz Music's website was taken offline -- the old URL now redirects to a European website owned by Denninger -- and was replaced by, which company execs say will focus on independent music videos and original web series by talent that won't be limited to its roster.

BlockStarz.TV is online, but is still in development according to Peppy Johnson, the company's former Vice President of A&R and newly-appointed Sr. Vice President of Music & Television, who expects the website to be “fully-realized” by February of 2013.

“Artists and projects signed to Block Starz Music will always take precedent, but our new website and personnel changes will allow us to collaborate with and showcase a wider range of talent,” says Johnson, who's overseeing various cable television projects for the label's 600-pound southern rapper, Ceddybu Rap Sumo. “The goal for our company's next four years is to make BlockStarz.TV a leading video distribution outlet for all forms of independent entertainment producers. That's a challenge, but it's very exciting.”

In "Headlocks," Toronto rhyme-slinger Scott Ramirez places his audience in a submission move while serenading them with personal thoughts, social commentary & rabid braggadocio over big band-type horns and thumping drums. Inspired by jazz records and dusty vice grip raps, produced by Justunlimited, this single is the first release off a performance heavy year with opening slots for the GZA, Masta Killa, J-Live and Stalley and since his official debut EP "Mad Work, Low Pay, Big Dreams" in 2011.
