LOS ANGELES – Geffen Music announced today new program to educate junior executives in the latest street lingo. Courses will be taught by leading lingo trend setters like Snoop Dogg and fellow rapper WD-41.
“It’s like I be doggin’ on the shizzle, but I got no cred,” said new student Jerome Whitmore, who hopes the class will equip him with the vocabulary to speak to up and coming artists in their vernacular.
The street lingo education program is nothing new for Geffen. After Billy Cyrus’ huge success with the crossover hit Achy Breaky Heart in the early 1990s, the company began a formal program to teach its account representatives to speak with a drawl.
“It builds trust and helps our country artists understand complicated concepts when their contact speaks their their language,” said Ed Gore, Director of Employee Development. Gore also stated that getting a master linguist like Dogg was a huge win for Geffen.
