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
