|questions & answers|
Why exactly did Tricky leave Island Records?
Tricky did not leave Island on acrimonious terms as the media suggests. Island Records was part of Polygram which was then sold to Universal. During this time period, a lot of changes occurred within Island including the resignations and firing of many key staff that worked with Tricky including Island founder, Chris Blackwell. When Chris left, Island ceased to exist as the cool, vibey label it was. Island is not part of a bastardized label called Island Def Jam (which also includes Mercury). The focus of the label shifted to rap and r&b which they have been very successful in breaking. Tricky will be the first one to concede that Island was good to him, but it was time for him to go because of the shift in direction of the label. Tricky left on amicable terms with Island Def Jam.
