About Our Company
Established in 2016, Forward Motion Management and Media LLC is a full-fledged management and media company. We started the company to have full creative and artistic control of content, as well as help artists create and promote music.
Our company is focused on remaining independent while building a fan base for our current and future artists. Many of our musicians do not need to depend on mainstream culture for acceptance or validity. Our team strives hard to create high-quality products and events in line with our brand.
We also aspire to build powerful relationships between artists and audiences . To accomplish this, we maintain an online presence through social media partnerships and content development.
We work hard to independently build and maintain excellence in all of our business and product developments. Our company was inspired by the following independent firms:
- No Limit Records
- Strange Music Group
- Suave House
- Ruthless Records
- Rap-o-Lot Records

A Message From Musiq Matisse
I understand that maintaining ownership and independence as well as creative control over your product is the only way to ensure your own success in the current business of music. It’s not how much you sell, it’s about what you are getting back from the amount sold.
