Concert promotion firm The Commission Presents is expanding into artist management, signing female rap pioneer Lil' Kim and Latin singer Victor Manuelle as its first clients.
The East Coast-based company has previously promoted concerts with both artists. Lil' Kim, nicknamed Queen Bee, most recently appeared on the 10th anniversary special of Dancing With the Stars to perform the Labelle classic "Lady Marmalade" with Patti LaBelle and Glee's Amber Riley. Her cover of the hit with Christina Aguilera, Pink and Mya won a Grammy in 2002 for best pop collaboration. The Grammy-nominated Manuelle -- aka El Sonero de la Juventud (the Singer of Youths) -- just notched his record-setting 25th No. 1 on Billboard's Tropical Songs chart with "Agua Bendita."
In a press release announcing the management division's launch, The Commission Presents CEO Artie Pabon stated, "We are beginning with a bang. "
The Commission Presents' 2015 spring/summer slate includes shows starring Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds & Fantasia, Pitbull, Trey Songz, Romeo Santos, R. Kelly, Deep Purple and Juanes. (billboard)

Lil’ Kim’s ex found guilty of ordering six murders
A schizophrenic former drug kingpin – who once dated rapper Lil’ Kim – was found guilty in Brooklyn federal court Wednesday of ordering six murders.
Damion “World” Hardy, who led a drug crew that terrorized the Lafayette Gardens projects in Bedford-Stuyvesant during the late 1990s, was also convicted of drug dealing, attempted murder and kidnapping.
He faces a mandatory life term.
Hardy, who once feuded with former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson over the death of the boxer’s pal, was expressionless as the verdict was read.
He was heavily medicated during the trial to subdue his taste for courtroom rants.
The case dragged on for more than a decade as Hardy’s lawyers argued that the diagnosed schizophrenic wasn’t fit to stand trial. But Judge Frederic Block ruled that Hardy had retained just enough sanity to face a jury.
His co-defendant, prolific triggerman Aaron Granton, was also hit with a long list of guilty verdicts and will spend the rest of his days behind bars.
At trial, prosecutor Soumya Dayananda told jurors that Hardy oversaw a massive narcotics operation and routinely ordered hits on rivals and assorted enemies.
He was done in at trial by the same men he once supervised with an iron fist.
Several of Hardy’s former Cash Money Brothers underlings testified for the prosecution and spewed details of his gory resume to jurors. (NY POST)
