California Rapper Reason Signs to Top Dawg Entertainment
Top Dawg Entertainment adds to its rich roster of talent. Today (Aug. 8), TDE founder Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith announced the signing of Reason, a Del Amo, Calif.-bred rapper who gained his most significant bit of exposure when he appeared on the label's Black Panther soundtrack earlier this year on a song called "Seasons."
"INTRODUCING @iam_reason TO THE TEAM. 'The Soul,'" Top Dawg wrote in a tweet. He included a link to Reason's new song "The Soul" in the post as well. For his part, Reason also tweeted about the good news.
"Proud to say I’m part of the family!
#TDE The Soul," Reason tweeted.
He also expanded on his signing in a lengthier Instagram post. "Finally able to proudly put this out and say thank you to @topdawgent for welcoming me to the family," he wrote. "And a huge thank you to @dangerookipawaa for taking a chance on me. You saved my life and I’m here to work. First release of many! “The Soul” link in my bio!"
While Reason isn't a nationally known name, he's a rhymer who's definitely got the skills to become one. "The Soul" serves as a showcase for some serious talent. On the track, Reason delivers some passionate bars about his come-up. It's basically a classic "I've finally made it" kind of vibe, and it's dope.
"Patience, new beginnings coming/Niggas been had drive, just had to get their engine running/You either die chasing dreams or you live for nothing," he spits on the song.
Up to this point, the Black Panther soundtrack and Reason's own There You Have It project have been his biggest drops to date. Now, he should be doing it bigger than ever. Salute.
