300′s First Signee Is A Rapper From Seattle

Meet Raz Simone, a rapper who’s underground fire is helping set the Seattle hip-hop scene ablaze.

After two years of cultivating an independent brand by releasing EPs, touring and creating impressive visuals through his one-stop-shop company Black Umbrella, Raz has been able to link up with 300.

“Lyor was the first person that I linked up with and that I clicked with,” the 24-year-old Rapper told MTV News before officially announcing his partnership with 300.

The new content company at the helm of music industry vets Lyor Cohen, Todd Moscowitz and Kevin Liles made Raz their first signee after the rapper garnered major buzz back in March when he dropped his debut solo EP, Solomon Samuel Simone.
