Congratulations are in order for Bobby Sessions. Last week, the Dallas native, who dropped his debut album, Law of Attraction (LOA), in 2015, announced his signing with Def Jam, one of the most prestigious hip-hop record labels in the game.

In a post on his Twitter page on Feb. 7, Sessions shared a photo of himself in front of the Def Jam logo and detailed the risk and struggle he took to pursue his music career, quitting his job with only $50 in his bank account and then signing a deal with the famed label. He also publicly thanked Paul Rosenberg, who made his name working with Eminem and is now Def Jam’s CEO, for the opportunity.

"2015 was my first year after leaving my job with $50 in my bank. 3 years later I signed a deal with @DefJamRecords through @HighStandardzTX. Thank you @rosenberg. Check out my interview with @Shawn_Cotton of @Saycheese_Media.  ," wrote Sessions, who grew up on Jay-Z, James Brown and N.E.R.D.

Rosenberg publicly showed his support for the rapper, tweeting, "So many good things to come from @BobbySessionsTX ...welcome to @DefJamRecords!"

In an interview with Shawn Cotton of Say Cheese TV, following the signing, Sessions said that he started to become more motivated as an artist after he noticed others were inspired by his first couple of interviews, especially after quitting his job. He also weighed in on the current state of hip-hop in his hometown.
