L.A. Reid was born Antonio M. Reid on June 7, 1956 in Cincinnati, Ohio to his mother, Emma Reid. In high school, he enjoyed playing the drums and went on to join several bands. His nickname was quickly given after a friend saw him wearing an L.A. Dodgers t-shirt.

Reid then remarried to Erica Holton Reid, a former school teacher, in 2000. He has a total of four children, known as Aaron, Chase Anthony, Ariana, and Addison. Reid first began his career in the music industry in 1969 when he worked with Pure Essence, who released a 45 in the 1970s. His career quickly evolved after co-founding LaFace Records in 1989 with former bandmate, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. He signed several successful artists to the label, which included Usher, TLC, Toni Braxton, and Outkast. In 1996, Reid started Hitco Publishing Group in hopes of reaching a larger market of singers and producers in the music industry.

Reid has become famous for promoting the careers of celebrities that include Mariah Carey, Avril Lavigne, Toni Braxton, Justin Bieber, Paula Abdul, Pink, Rihanna, and Kanye West. He held the position as the executive of the the Island Def Jam Music Group for six years until March of 2011. Aside from his heavy involvement in the music industry, Reid joined the advisory board of a cosmetic line, Le Métier de Beauté, in 2008. In 2011, Reid worked as a judge on the television show, The X-Factor and held his position for two seasons. The same year that he joined the show, he was promoted to the chairman and CEO of Epic Records, but left The X-Factor to focus more on his career at the record label. In 2013, he was awarded the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences President’s Merit Award at the Grammy Salute to Industry Icons Celebration. Reid is currently worth an estimated $300 million.
