INTERSCOPE RECORDS is an American record label . An imprint of Interscope Geffen A&M Records , its parent company is Universal Music Group , a subsidiary of Vivendi S.A. Interscope was founded in 1990 by Jimmy Iovine and Ted Field as a $20 million joint venture with Warner Music Group 's Atlantic Records . At the time, it differed from most record companies by giving decision-making authority to its A&R staff , and allowing artists and producers complete creative control. It had its first hit records less than a year after it was founded and achieved profitability in 1993. Iovine served as chairman and CEO until May 2014, when he was succeeded by John Janick . In 1992, Interscope acquired the exclusive rights to market and distribute the hardcore rap label Death Row Records , whose artists included rappers Tupac Shakur , Dr. Dre , and Snoop Dogg , at the center of the mid-'90s gangsta rap controversy . As a result, Time Warner , the former owner of WMG, severed ties with Interscope by selling its 50 percent stake back to Field and Iovine for $115 million in 1995. In 1996, 50% of the label was acquired by the MCA Music Entertainment Group for a reported $200 million. Interscope is headquartered in Santa Monica, California
