Later on him and fellow group member Kenneth Edmonds left the band to establish LAFace Records in 1989. Since then the success has been unreal, from writing and producing hits for such acts as Bobby Brown, Whitney Houston and The Whispers.

L.A has ran many labels including Epic, Universal Music Groups Island/Def Jam and LAFace Records which was founded by himself back in 1989 and eventually transitioned into Sony.
