Glokknine Signs to Cash Money Records
Cash Money Records continues to add talent to its growing roster. On Friday (Aug. 3), label CEOs Birdman and Slim signed rising Orlando, Fla. rapper Glokknine.
News of the new signing was announced via social media. Glokk posted a photo of himself signing the contract while flanked by Slim and Stunna. "CMRG/AFNF Cashmoney Republic Records New Artist Yessir," he captioned the pic.
Birdman also posted video of the signing on his Instagram page. In his post, Glokk is putting pen to paper on his contract. "@glokk9afnf 💰#Cashmoney," reads the caption under the video clip. The deal is rumored to be in the $2 million range. XXL has reached out to reps for Cash Money and Birdman to confirm the signing.
Florida has been bubbling with new talent, with some of the hottest new artists in the game in Kodak Black, Denzel Curry, Lil Pump, XXXTentacion, Wifisfuneral, Ski Mask The Slump God and Smokepurpp, among others, hailing from the Sunshine State. Birdman taps into the talent pool with his acquisition of Glokknine, who has been making a name for himself in his city for his guttural street music and Kodak Black comparisons.
He hopped on the scene with his debut mixtape, Bloodshells Revenge, in April. Last month, he dropped the new project, Loyalty Kill Love, which features the standout tracks "Knikk Knakk and "Talm Bout" and a cameo from YBN Almighty Jay.
