Yo Gotti has announced a new partnership with his CMG label and Epic Records.
Gotti took to Instagram to show a picture of the Epic Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid and him. It confirmed that a multi-million dollar, multi-tiered deal will offer everything from distribution to promotional opportunities for his CMG imprint.
“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,” he said. “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.”
Gotti was fielding financial offers from other labels, but decided to go with Epic because the situation felt right.
“The independent success we’ve had thus far with our tour, merchandising and projects from myself and my first artist Zed Zilla has given me the perfect opportunity to create the best possible partnership for CMG,” Gotti said. “I have no doubt that we will take our movement to its pinnacle with Epic Records.”
Yo Gotti recently released his single “Check” that will have a video releasing soon. His debut album, Live From the Kitchen, released in January 2012, sold more than 16,000 copies.
