Terrence “Snake” Hawkins is an Atlanta native entertainment executive and manager. Snake got his start in the entertainment industry after he was discovered working at a retail shop he owned in Atlanta by the management team of Heavy Weight Champion, Mike Tyson. Soon after, he was appointed as an A&R for Tyson Records. Using that opportunity to get his feet wet in the music game, Snake went on to work with an independent management company, working with talent such as The Game, Trillville, Pleasure P and more. Developing within the career field, he went back to his ATL roots, joining Jason Geter and Clay Evans at Grand Hustle Management; home of iconic artist T.I. and breakthrough act Young Dro. After years of working with Grand Hustle, Snake continued to expand as a highly sought after manager that would soon be acquired by hip-hop star, Gucci Mane. As Snake continues to work with Gucci Mane, he expanded his management profile gaining clients such as Melvin Ingram of the LA Chargers, DMV rising rap star Q Da Fool, as well as scoring a Roc Nation joint venture deal for his Marki Entertainment imprint label. Snake continues to flourish into one of the most acclaimed music executives in the game.
