Special Guest: Wendy Day!
Ms Day has negotiated some stellar distribution deals in 
urban music. She has played a part in Eminem’s deal at Aftermath/Interscope, Master P’s No Limit deal with Priority Records, DJ DMD’s deal with Elektra, Fiend’s deal with 
Ruff Ryders, Trick-Trick’s joint venture with Universal/Motown, UGK’s renegotiation with Jive Records, and Ruff Ryder’s renegotiation with Interscope. She negotiated the incredible joint venture deal for Twista with Atlantic Records in 1996, which both The Source and Rap Pages magazines called “the best deal in the history of Black music,” until she topped her own record with the now famous $30 million dollar deal for Cash Money Records with Universal. She has always focused on complete control and ownership for the independent labels or artists in all of her deals. Master P was the first artist to keep control and ownership of 100% of his masters for No Limit. The money Wendy Day has earned negotiating these deals has gone into funding the not-for-profit 
Rap Coalition.?
In the Fall of 1998, tired of the lack of professionalism and inconsistencies in managers for urban artists, Wendy Day started Visionary Management,Visionary Management has consulted Twista, Fiend, Crooked Lettaz (David Banner), C-Murder, Slick Rick, Ras Kass, reggae producer Dave Kelly and multi-platinum  production team: Medicine Men, formerly known as Beats By The Pound. Visionary Management has worked with the managers of Slick Rick, Black Rob, Kane & Abel, Smoothe The Hustler, Canibus, Trigga Tha Gambler, WuTang Clan, and Beats By The Pound.
