Rich The Kid Signs to Interscope Records
Lil Pump isn't the only artist celebrating a new signing, as Rich The Kid has now officially signed with Interscope. The big announcement comes one week ahead of his next project Rich Forever 3, which drops June 16.
"I was talking to different labels, Columbia, RCA , Epic," Rich tells XXL. "I decided not to sign with Epic even after L.A. Reid offered me a crazy deal. [Senior Vice President of A&R at Interscope] Manny Smith & Interscope CEO John Janick understand me and my vision for myself and also my label. Interscope gave me the opportunity to take over the game completely and that's what I'm going to do."
Rich The Kid was previously signed to 300 Entertainment, and Rich The Kid's label Rich Forever is still under 300 Entertainment, as is Famous Dex. This new deal is for Rich as a solo artist.
So far, Rich The Kid has released "Talk About" from Rich Forever 3. There's no doubt his consistent new material has given Interscope some confidence in bringing him into the fold. He also appeared recently on Young Thug's "WTF You Doin" and one of Diplo's feature-packed singles, "Bankroll."
Rich's official debut album is expected to drop later this year.
