About Akright Records: Akright Records was founded in 1999 by Jonathan Bender and is based out of New Orleans. Bender stands poised to make his mark in the rap realm with his hungry roster of hip hop acts, including Young A, Shawt and Nosa. Unlike other athletes turned music executives, Bender remains in the background, acting as CEO, and helping guide the careers of his artists. Tracy Smith, President of Akright Records, is responsible for the day to day operations, marketing and promotional campaigns for Akright Records. Graegg Holmes is Vice President.

Akright Records is a part of Bender's corporation, JB Enterprises, which includes JB Entertainment (concert booking and promotions), Jon Valrae (casual/upscale clothing line for men and women), and NexNow Productions (television and boxing promotions).
