*LOS ANGELES – YE, formerly known as Kanye West, appointed Jason Lee, founder and CEO of Hollywood Unlocked to its executive team as the Head of Media and Partnerships. As YE builds out various entities committed to amplifying narratives and humanizing black voices in media and storytelling, Jason in this new role, will work to bring in like-minded institutions and content that will further expand YE’s media empire.
As head of media and partnerships, Lee will be responsible for overseeing the delivery of all media content, providing insight for the operation and management of the media department and streamlining partnerships and networking efforts to increase the visibility and credibility of YE’s new brand. Most recently, Lee helped launch YE’s Stem Player and Donda 2 album release which has grossed more than $3 Million since its release on February 22, 2022.
“After interviewing YE for Hollywood Unlocked and partnering with him on the Future Brunch, it was clear we had a shared vision for leveling the media landscape, controlling our narratives, and investing in culture,” says Jason Lee, head of media. “I’m both humbled and honored to begin this journey with him and his team.”
This move comes after the success of Lee and YE’s ‘The Future Brunch’ where 50 prestigious Black industry innovators were invited to take part in an intimate space to spark an open discussion for real change for Black journalists. During the brunch, press and Black executives discussed various topics that included disparities in Black media, how to build equity and representation on the red carpet and more.
