Irving has provided Def Jam the aid to help Jay-z, DMX, and Russel Simmons produce songs by being in their record label. He got the inspiration for his record label named Murder Inc. while watching a gangster week interview, and he saw a relative logo on the screen. Murder Inc. is a fictional company that helped do assassinations, and Irv found it inspirational because he wanted to churn out ‘Hits.’ Murder Inc. later altered their title to The Inc. because they got engaged in a federal investigation. This investigation commenced after Christoper and Gotti were connected to Kenneth Supreme McGriff, a drug kingpin from New York City. The jury then acquitted them of all charges on 2nd December 2005. The main reason why their record label had to alter their name was to appeal to the audience who was growing alienated because of these false allegations.
After the name change, Irv moved the label under the Universal Motown label and signed a contract with Vanessa Carlton. Gotti collaborated with Vanessa to produce the third album named Heroes and Thieves, and they released it on 9th October 2007. The track also credited Stephan Jenkins and Rick Rubin. Irv Gotti engaged in an interview with Angie Martinez where they discussed The Inc. label in the early May of 2009. Gotti stated that he has done the process to depart from Universal Records, and Murder Inc. will be independent.
Irv then decided to relaunch his old label as an umbrella operation of Visionary, another record label owned by Gotti. Murder Inc. has contributed significantly to the Hip-hop world, and their original breakout album was named Vemnni Vetti Vecci, which was in collaboration with Ja Rule. The album featured a chart-topping single called Holla Holla, which went platinum inside the USA. This song helped make the name of Murder Inc. known in the industry of hip-hop.
Irv is married to Debbie Lorenzo, who was with him for an extensive period. She is an artist and helps produce documentaries about prominent people inside the US. However, Gotti was involved in numerous scandalous affairs with a rapper and dancer named Ashanti. Later, Gotti broke off his marriage with Lorenzo, but the children have three children together, JJ, Angie, and Sonny.
The current approximate net worth of Irv Gotti is about 20 million USD. He has done collaborations with prominent artists such as The Game, Kanye West, and Chrlie Wilson in recent years. His recent albums have sold over a million records inside his US, which would have made him above two or three million dollars in sales, excluding his other business projects in record labels.
