Cory Litwin, founder/CEO of 2wenty2wenty Music Group, is joining Range Media Partners as the newest managing partner in the music division, the company tells Billboard.
Litwin brings with him his roster of more than 25 writers, producers and engineers encompassing multiple genres, including Murda Beatz, Jason “Cheese” Goldberg and Autumn Rowe. Litwin’s team, including managers Brennan Bryant and Ky Zaretsky as well as coordinator Edson Higareda, are also joining Range.
Since taking on management of Murda Beatz in 2014, Litwin has helped the producer rise to become one of the most in-demand hitmakers in hip-hop thanks to successful collaborations with Drake, Travis Scott and Migos. In 2022 alone, Litwin signed Murda Beatz to a global distribution deal with ADA Worldwide, negotiated a catalog sale with Canadian music rights manager Kilometre Music Group and scored him a Las Vegas residency at Hakkasan. Litwin and Murda Beatz also recently co-founded and launched Murda Beatz Psychedelic Water, a non-alcoholic herbal supplement.
Litwin began his career as a party and concert promoter in Toronto. Before joining Range, he served as executive vp at Neil Jacobson‘s Hallwood Media from 2020-23. He has twice been named to Billboard‘s R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players list.
“Cory Litwin adds a much-needed dimension to our already dynamic business,” said Range Music co-founder/managing partner Matt Graham. “He and his team understand the producer and writer representation landscape at the highest level and provide access to tremendous hitmakers that enrich Range Music, feed our burgeoning label and publishing business. Additionally, I have found him to be a leader who acts; motivating those around him to move his client agendas forward at every turn.”
Range Music managing partner Tyler Henry added, “Cory is one of the best managers in the industry, and I couldn’t be more excited we get to partner again after all of these years. He goes above and beyond for his artist, partners, team and family. His abilities as an executive go far beyond music and I can’t wait to see what he accomplishes at Range.”
“I chose Range because I loved the company culture and the partners that had already been assembled,” said Litwin. “One of my favorite quotes is, ‘It’s not about the destination, but about the journey.’ Being able to join somewhere at this point in my journey with so many great partners having varying expertise and experience is exciting and inspiring to me. I’m looking to grow as much as I can and work alongside great people who can help with my growth and the growth of my clients. Here at Range there is an opportunity to expand into the arenas of some of my other passions, including film, television and sports.”
In addition to Litwin, Graham and Henry, the Range Media music division is headed up by Jack Minihan, Melissa Ruderman, Chris Thomas and Evan Winiker, as well as partners Michele Harrison, Greg Johnson, Rachel Douglas, Ace Christian and Joel Zimmerman.
Since launching just over two years ago, the Range music division has established its own label in partnership with Capitol Music Group and Virgin Music & Artist Label Services and brought on clients including Jack Harlow, Saweetie, Justin Tranter, Cordae, Midland, Nova Wav, Nicky Romero, D Smoke, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Hailey Whitters, Lauv, MAX, HARV, Sean Douglas, Wondagurl, Disco Biscuits, Rich the Kid, Yola, Eric Bellinger, Tkay Maidza and Pentatonix.
