Yo Gotti has become the latest rapper to merge his imprint with a major label. The Memphis native has announced a partnership between between his CMG imprint and Epic Records. The multi-million dollar, multi-tier deal offers CMG a complete distribution and promotional opportunity. Gotti explains that he was fielding large figure deals from a number of labels, but he felt that the offer from Epic made the most business sense. This comes just a few days after Gotti posted the above picture of himself and Epic Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid.
This is a solid partnership that allows me to do what I do on bigger platforms, with the respect and support of the Epic team. Throughout L.A. Reid’s career, I realize he has been a part of creating some of the biggest superstars in the industry. I feel there is no better person to partner with.
A lot of labels were talking big checks, but the money didn’t interest me. I wanted a partner that wasn’t afraid to work as hard as I do. I knew that by sticking to my independent business mind frame and continuing to chase my dream, that the right situation was going to come.
