Mickey “MeMpHitz” Wright
Mickey “MeMpHitz” Wright, Jr, CEO of Do Work Enterprises, belongs to a brand new breed of creative music executives who have begun toestablish themselves on the horizon. Wright appreciates the ins and outs of
his profession that he has learned from a handful of great record men – among them Antonio ‘L.A.’ Reid, Jermaine Dupri, Clive Davis, and most recently, Barry Weiss. But what sets Wright apart is his ability to transcend those lessons, to build a foundation of entrepreneurship based on his own God-given talent – to spot the real-deal artist a mile away, and to hear a hit record before anyone else in the room. Born and raised in Memphis, Mickey Wright, Jr. (the middle of four brothers and one sister) avoided becoming a River City casualty for most of his childhood and teen years. He spent a short time at Shelby State Community College while working part-time at an electronics store but dreamed of something bigger. In 2002, MeMpHitz left Memphis for New York City. He enrolled at the Institute for Audio Research (IAR) in Greenwich Village, the beginning of an 18-month stint at the school. In 2003, MeMpH became and intern at Arista Records and began what would prove to be a stellar career. During his internship, he was befriended by Jermaine Dupri, who took a liking to his initiative. With his thick accent, they soon began calling him ‘Memphis,’ and he began to be integrated into the A&R system. He would soon learn the power of initiative and risk-taking.
