Tommy Boy Music Internship Profile
In 1981, Tom Silverman started Tommy Boy Music in his crowded NYC apartment. The company’s first hip-hop single quickly went gold. Though firmly rooted in hip-hop, Tommy Boy soon branched into other genres, such as dance music. Seventy-seven Tommy Boy records have gone gold, platinum or multi-platinum. AOL Time Warner purchased half of the company in 1986 and the rest of it in 1989, but Silverman bought the whole thing back in 2002.
