L.A. Reid’s tumultuous tenure at Def Jam/Universal ended when he announced he was going to become a judge for the talent competition “X-Factor.” But in an interview with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez, Reid made it clear that he has not left the music industry behind.
“Listen, I’m nobody’s fool, I didn’t give up my day job,” Reid said. “I just left, I had to leave Universal Music Group and try my hat on someplace else, that we’ll announce, well… we’ll announce that in a little while.”
“You’re not done with me yet. I’m telling you the truth: I have not been shipped off to TV land,” he added. “I am a record executive and I shall be right there in your face with my records.”
