In this week’s Rezak lecture, we will hear from and dialogue with Jamil Davis, one of the music industry’s brightest—and highest energy—young visionaries. Davis got his start tour managing some of the biggest names in hip-hop, so we’ll be sure to dive in to creating momentum for one’s self at a young age. But Davis went on to manage G-Easy from the fringes to the very top of the charts, so we’ll be able to go deep on artist development, the industry during COVID-19, and pretty much any other aspect of the biz. Davis is a huge personality but an even bigger talent, and one definitely not to be missed.

Los Angeles-native Jamil “Big Juice” Davis has built his 15-year tenure in music through aligning himself with artists and friends alike and always demonstrating the importance of “good vibes.” Davis began his career by tour managing artists such as Lil Wayne and Drake, all while still attending Dillard University in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was during his time in college that Davis met business partner and fellow co-CEO, Matt Bauerschmidt, as well as their flagship client, Gerald Gillum (G-Eazy).

Developing Gillum into a now global sensation, Jamil Davis and The Revels Group have shown no sign of slowing down. Recognized as a member of Billboard’s esteemed “40 Under 40 Top Young Power Players in Music,” Davis has continued to grow The Revels Group roster, now including a thriving producer division. Management clients include G-Eazy, Dounia, Jackboy, Gibson Hazard, Ambezza, Julia Lewis and Nik Dean.
