Congratulations to Yo Gotti ! Amidst rumors produced from the posting of an Instagram photo, Memphis-born artist and entrepreneur Yo Gotti is proud to formally announce his new CMG label partnership with Epic Records. The multi-million dollar, multi-tier deal will offer a complete distribution and promotional opportunity for CMG.
“This is a solid partnership that allows me to do what I do on bigger platforms, with the respect and support of the Epic team,” explains Yo Gotti. “Throughout L.A. Reid’s career, I realize he has been a part of creating some of the biggest superstars in the industry. I feel there is no better person to partner with.”
Yo Gotti asserts that Benny Pough, Epic’s EVP of Urban Music, was extremely supportive of the signing from their initial talks: “After my meeting with L.A. Reid, Benny Pough and his staff felt like Epic would be the perfect home to further the growth of CMG. A lot of labels were talking big checks, but the money didn’t interest me,” explains Gotti. “I wanted a partner that wasn’t afraid to work as hard as I do. I knew that by sticking to my independent business mind frame and continuing to chase my dream, that the right situation was going to come.”
Additionally, the CMG team pushed Yo Gotti’s latest single “Check” into the Billboard Top 20, and he will be releasing the official video with full support from Epic.
