Play-N-Skillz Nab Label Deal With SRC

Play-N-Skillz, the Dallas production duo known for crafting such hits as Chamillionaire’s “Ridin’,” Lil Wayne’s “Got Money” and Kia Shine’s “So Krispy,” recently signed a deal with SRC Records.

The Grammy-award-winning brothers, Juan “Play” and Oscar “Skillz” Salinas, told XXLMag.com that they just inked the deal last week with label head Steve Rifkind. “They gave us a joint venture/distribution [deal],” Play said. “But it’s not just producers and artists, we’re going over there as executives as well,” he explained. “They’re giving us the power to put out the records, market the record, you know the whole nine, so it’s a beautiful situation.”

Play-N-Skillz, had previously released their own solo album, 2004′s The Process, as a part of Asylum’s roster. “We wanna thank Asylum Records for sticking through everything in the last couple of years we were signed to them, but we’re off Asylum and we got our new situation,” Play continued.

The duo have plans to drop their sophomore disc, Out tha Box soon. –Elan Mancini with reporting by Carl Chery

    Good stuff for them…

    Whats up with the spam comments WTF???

  • Nate

    Hey BeerGangsta, before you put the comment you should have read the article….

    They are known PRIMARILY as Producers before rappers, kinda like Dre raps but he’s not known for that…

    Same with the Trak Lords here in the Bay. They make good shit on the level of Play-N-Skillz down there… make albums with all kinds of artists on there…

    A lot of people would ask me “Who is this” when I played their album, because of course they didn’t have most of their stuff on the radio unless it was a song with a big artist like Cham. Same with Trak Lords here, same with Kanye before he blew up. Play-N-Skillz are the real deal because they understand how to craft a song better suited to the artist himself instead of strictly having only a specific “sound”.
