In early September, entrepreneur & publicist Michael Bentley announced that he was officially launching his own music label that wouldn’t function as a music label with Slam House. It created quite the industry stir with the news debuting on The Source Magazine and on Blitzweekly.
Now it seems Bentley’s vision for “the future of the entertainment world,” is starting to come to light even though Bentley said nothing would happen besides funding until 2015.
The immediate focus for Slam House Agency Group seems to be two things, Models and Boxing.
Slam House Vice-President and Co-Founder, Neal Foggie was in Atlantic City last week meeting with both investors and boxing promotion companies. Although there was no official release yet, speculation has been high.
Mike Authinik, head of development within Slam House, was also in Atlantic City last weekend for the Bernard Hopkins vs Sergey Kovalev match. Authinik was spotted with rapper/actor 50 Cent, who now runs his own boxing promotions company, SMS Promotions, and he was also spotted at the Golden Boy after party.
SMS Promotions, Golden Boy, Top Rank, or even Roc Nation have all been linked to Slam House in the rumor mill online.
Bentley is the executive producer of a national syndicated sports radio show, Thru the Wire, which has featured major boxers such as Larry Holmes and Fast Eddie Chambers and new comers like Saul Rodriguez and Emanuel Steward’s former protege, Anthony Barnes.
Boxing seems like a priority for Slam House.
Boxing is just one of the two. The second focus for Slam House is Models. That focus is also starting to come to light.
Slam House is about to sign model/actress, Shaquana Mitchell, and a major movie role seems on the heels of the signing.
Shaquana has a mild resume that does include working with the Queens rap group Mobb Deep. It seems actress and not model might be more of the Slam House agenda as they have purchased a screen play with ties to Lion Gates Film.
Authinik was quiet when asked about the signing of Mitchell on fight night Saturday, but the screen play does have a major lead female character. Well, at least that is what Bentley said on an interview with THTBH earlier this month.
Neither Bentley and Foggie haven’t downplayed signing musicians, and they are still preparing a national tour for early 2015 with the Music Journal Series and DJ Fade.
Whether it is the sport of boxing, the beauty of models, or the next, great musician it seems Slam House is preparing major moves in 2015.
