In the early years of the 21st century, R&B/hip-hop performer Akon made his name as a popular vocalist and an in-demand producer. After succeeding as a musician, Akon decided to foster new talent by launching his own record label, Konvict Muzik, as well as a music distributor, Kon Live Distribution.

Other artists signed by Akon include Kardinal Offishall, Kat DeLuna, and Colby O'Donis.

What they tend to have in common is the ability to blend all kinds of music together, and a knack for embracing the unconventional.
