Today we’d like to introduce you to Marty Arnold.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Marty. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I have or 25 years in the Music Industry and have my hand in over 20 million records sold worldwide. It has been a long journey, disappointments and the word NO told to me often. I struggled managing groups trying to get them in the face a Record Labels and then in the early 90’s I had a group signed to Laface Records B-Rock and the Bizz and my first commercial hit was born “My Baby Daddy” with Laface. The song went on to break musical records and change the pop culture…the term Baby Daddy wasn’t used until the song came out. The record was certified gold with 500,000 pre-orders alone. The song also opened up the door for our production company to work with heavyweights in the industry like Usher, Rick Ross, The Game, Trick Daddy and The Dream just to name a few and songs on the Players club soundtrack and Bring It On.
Has it been a smooth road?
My challenges were I started in an era without Internet / social media so we really had to go door to door from state to state to get our music to just be considered we couldn’t just send an email or post on social media. I thought my name was No Not Interested, I heard it so much. The challenges now are being tech savvy with the internet now everything moves quickly so you gotta stay ahead of the curve.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with 6x Entertainment – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
6x Entertainment was started before me, I merged my company with my now business partner C. Von Parchman who is based in Los Angeles, California. Our merger has now allowed us to have a bi-coastal operation with me in Atlanta, Georgia. 6x Entertainment creates opportunities for trendsetters that shape the culture in film, television, music, sports, and beyond. We have a roster of talent in all these categories ex: actors we place in commercials, print ad & film, basketball players overseas, musical artist, writers / producers etc.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Being born and raised in Los Angeles but having relocated here over 20 years ago I love being apart of the evolution of Atlanta in the entertainment world…never would I have thought 20 years ago this would be the new Hollywood.
