When Was YK Osiris Dropped from His Deal with Def Jam Recordings?
According to a report published by TMZ on Tuesday, Def Jam Recordings parted ways with YK back in December of 2022. While it seems as though it was ultimately the label's decision to drop YK Osiris, a source reportedly told the celebrity new site that the two parties mutually agreed to go their separate ways. YK Osiris was originally signed to the legendary hip-hop record label back in 2018 on the strength of his then-viral hit, "Worth It."
YK Osiris Is Not Afraid to Show Emotion
While YK Osiris is known for his often-heartfelt lyrical content, the "Love Pains" rhymer has also had no qualms about letting his emotions fly in the public eye. Within just the past month, after Sukihana accepted YK's apology for kissing her mouth without permission, Osiris called out for help via Instagram saying that he "lost everything" including his family, his mind and his "love for music."
