Paul Rosenberg

Def Jam Recordings
Detroit native Paul Rosenberg began 2018 on the cover of Billboard’s annual Power 100 issue, alongside his longtime friend, partner and client Eminem. Rosenberg - one of the music industry’s most prominent artist managers and label executives thanks to a combination of sharp business acumen, a savvy ear for talent, and a gift for marketing and promotion – had just added another title to his resume and fulfilled a lifelong dream in the process: chairman and CEO of legendary hip-hop label Def Jam Recordings.
An accomplished attorney, Rosenberg is also the founder and CEO of Goliath Artists Inc. — the New York-based management firm that handles the career of global hip-hop superstar Eminem and other recording artists including Detroit’s Danny Brown. Paul also continues to oversee Shady Records, the boutique record label he launched in 1999 with Eminem that has released breakthrough albums by such hip-hop acts as 50 Cent, D12 and Bad Meets Evil (Eminem’s collaboration with Royce Da 5’9”).

In 2002, Rosenberg added the role of producer to his resume as executive producer of the blockbuster Imagine/Universal film 8 Mile, followed by serving as producer with Jimmy Iovine on 50 Cent’s 2005 film debut Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, and as producer of 2015’s pugilist hit Southpaw.
In addition to his roles at Def Jam, Goliath and Shady, Rosenberg oversees a portfolio of creative projects and endeavors in his ongoing partnership with Eminem: Shady Films, an original content creation group that has produced web series, television and broadcast live events, SiriusXM satellite radio station Shade45, and RapRadar.com.
