G.I. Records LLC is an Independent music and video company that provides worldwide distribution for artists of any genres. The label formation began in 1995, and owner, Mr. Andrew "Drew" Knibbs became a member of the American Entrepreneur Association(AEA). The in the year 1985 prior, he formed RruffNekkTalentEnt a talent scouting and booking company based in Jamaica, and was created while working as an Entertainment Coordinator with the Azzan's Group who were owners of Super Clubs such as Grand Lido Negril, Hedonism I & II, Grand Ledo Bahamas, and Grand Lido San Sushi, Jamaica. Mr. Knibbs became a member of ASCAP within the same year, and when he migrated to the United States, he met his close friend and brother-in-law Mr. Stacy "E-Dogg" Ellison. Mr. Ellison a avid music producer and Mr. Knibbs a Talent Scout met and created a group called Yung Mobb, and in 2000 RruffNekkTalentEnt gave birth to G.I.Records LLC which was the hometown city and birth place of Mr. Stacy "E-Dogg" Ellison, Gary Indiana. In 2005 Mr. Andrew "Drew" Knibbs met and married Crystal Torie Knibbs, the youngest sister sibling of Mr. Ellison. After Mr. Ellison passed away, the management of both companies was passed on to Mr. Knibbs, and he has taken the reins and place the label as well as the parent company in greater and new highs. Mr. Knibbs musical industry background is one that is very extensive. After he became a legal resident of the USA, and now a citizen, he decided to pursue the music business side of the industry by learning, and being mentored by people such as Mr. Jeffrey Collins, President of Famous Music Group/UMG, and also trained and earned his credits as an A&R Talent Scout with Ms. Angela Culliver, President of IMF-Indie Music Factory, and Executive A&R for Wealth Nation Entertainment owned by Mr. Rob Terrell. Just recently in 2017 Mr. Knibbs had aligned his label with No Limit Forever East under Mr. Leonardo Myrick, but now, the label is no longer affiliated with nor is under that brand. This decision and move was made for the best interest of the label as a sole Independent entity, as well as for the brand. Mr. Knibbs and his former partner Mr. Ellison vision was and still is for the label, to provide a place call home for Indie artists of any genre, regardless of age, color, or creed. These things should not be the deciding factors in rating an artist, but instead, the talent should be the paramount thing to speak for the artist. Every artists that knock on their door, must have the best talent that can and will survive this ever changing music industry. A budget, even though it is a plus, but it is not an essential factor for both gentlemen, they expect an artist must have talent and presentation that is marketable, and consumer viable. It is a money making business, and will always be looked at as such. Moving forward, Mr. Knibbs vision for G.I. Records LLC is to try and change the world with unique and specialize entertainment that foster growth and good will. This model of entertainment will be fresh, raw, personal, and will be filled with hope, always upbeat. It will be original, always. It is the aim of Mr. Knibbs and his team of networking professionals along with both of his brands to reach out and accept artists with talent and presentation that will be original at all times, either by words, music, action, speech, and drama. Mr. Knibbs believe that people entertain by using all that life has to offer, either through visual or performing arts, with music and dance, their personal, individual, or self expressiveness is depicted in still life. Multimedia advance electronics are all here to stay, and they are not leaving no time soon. It will not change, so therefore we should embrace it, and use the most updated and current methods that afford itself to us to our better way of life, by creating arts, laughter, fashion, comedy, movie and music that will serve to make life grow, live, love and laugh, but make sure that what we create by being great writers, and musicians, we create things that people can listen to and relate, just because it is everyday way of life. With every artists that approaches Mr. Knibbs with the opportunity to join his network, he will take them to that next level and show them how with great music, quality presentation, and marketing sprinkled with promotion, you can create a wealth stream of income. Currently, Mr. Andrew "Drew" Knibbs has joined up with Asia Distribution Company Hong Kong International Limited to provide Major music and video distribution services, that includes marketing and promotion all over Asia Music Markets. Mr. Knibbs goal in so doing is to keep the world entertained, by always making sure the world has something to laugh, smile, dance and sing about.
