Block Entertainment Teams With Capitol Records

Block Entertainment has branched out from Diddy’s Bad Boy Records, and has announced plans to team up with Capitol Records to release the first project from up-and-coming Atlanta rapper Kollosus.

“Block Entertainment is a force to be reckoned with in the hip hop arena; they have continuously churned out undeniable hip hop stars,” Leonard Brooks, SVP Urban A&R, EMI Music said in a press release. “As we grow Capitol’s urban roster, this association with Block Entertainment makes perfect sense. We are excited to sign Kollosus as well; he has a skillful flow that reflects his years growing up in Atlanta and his Jamaican-born roots. He has a unique sense of street swagger with a global appeal.”

Kollosus plans on dropping his debut in spring of next year. He recently released his street single, “Settin Standards” with fellow ATL rapper Gucci Mane.

In the past Block has put out several albums on Bad Boy including projects by Boyz N da Hood, Gorilla Zoe and Yung Joc.

Yet last May, Joc revealed to that he had plans to sue the label, founder Russell “Block” Spencer and Bad Boy for unpaid advances and royalties. As of press time there has been no updates on the suit. —Elan Mancini
