It’s official. Yo Gotti announced that his label CMG has partnered with Epic Records. The multi-million dollar, multi-tier deal will offer a complete distribution and promotional opportunity for CMG.

Speaking of his latest boss move, Yo Gotto said,

“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. 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 also asserted 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.”

This is definitely a good look after things went sour with his last situation at Polo Grounds/RCA. Yo Gotti was signed to the label for about four years after his previous label TVT Records folded but his success was due to him.

With no label support and fighting to get out of his contract, Yo Gotti has been on a relentless grind over the past few years with his Cocaine Muzik Mixtape series and his successful CMG Road To Riches Tour. He added,

“A lot of labels were talking big checks, but the money didn’t interest me. 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.”

Yo Gotti’s latest single “Check” already hit the Billboard Top 20, and he will be releasing the official video with full support from Epic.

“The independent success we’ve had thus far with our tour, merchandising and projects from myself and my first artist Zed Zilla has given me the perfect opportunity to create the best possible partnership for CMG. I have no doubt that we will take our movement to its pinnacle with Epic Records.”

Much respect Playboy. The grind paid off.
