Black Ink MMG Website Launch 11/28/2010

Black Ink Management and Music Group LLC (BIMMG) is a brand-new independent record label based out of Newport News, Virginia, and distributed by Bungalo Records/Universal UMGD. The company was founded by Ron (Ronnie Wayne) Hatchett in 2009 with the goal of exposing great talent in all music genres. Although small, BIMMG shares the same amenities as its larger counterparts, but operates in a more modern nontraditional manner. Black Ink’s staff understands what it’s like to be an artist, and we reinforce that not only in the way we do business, but also in the way we take care of our artists. “The hunger will always be there, along with the same ‘ground up’ approach. We’re not interested in following the same methodologies that are used, not only by the Big Four, but by other so-called ‘indies’ claiming to be different. We will keep our relationships with the consumer strong at all times, and we will remain relevant without losing integrity,” States Ronnie Wayne CEO

Over the next year, BIMMG will fully utilize its digital distribution partnership with Bungalo/Universal by releasing as many “Top” projects as possible, covering multiple genres of music. Over the next several years, the company plans to position itself as a major imprint on the east coast, with a reach that will span worldwide.

'I think we've found him'

It was a beautiful fall afternoon in northeast Ohio. There was no snow on the ground as expected, and it was about 40 degrees, as Cleveland Browns fans looked upon what is certain to be a bright future for a franchise that has struggled since the late 80s. What a great way to bring in the Holiday Season. Browns nation was definitely dealt a couple of early gifts this year. The gifts; Colt McCoy, Peyton Hillis, Defense. Oh, and Lebron who?


After nearly 20 years I'm starting to believe that the search is finally over. I think we've found him, our quarterback, our leader, our future. "Colt McCoy" He shows poise, maturity and heart. He is cool, calm and in control. He is a winner.


CLEVELAND- Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy scrambled for a touchdown, and running back Peyton Hillis hammered for a career-high 184 yards and two scores as the Cleveland Browns pounded the New England Patriots 34-14 on Sunday. Two weeks after stunning the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints, the Browns (3-5) pulled off another shocker. Well rested after their bye week, they ended New England's five-game winning streak and did it decisively, outplaying one of the NFL's top teams for all 60 minutes.


This wasn't a fluke. The Patriots (6-2) were battered, baffled and beaten badly. It had to be particularly satisfying for Browns coach Eric Mangini, who defeated Bill Belichick, his former friend and mentor. The pair's relationship was damaged years ago, and they ignored each other during pregame warmups. After the game, Mangini shared a brief handshake with Belichick. (
