Yo Gotti, head of CMG Records and the rapper behind huge viral smashes such as “Down In The DM” and “Rake It Up,” announced on Tuesday (July 5) that he has signed GloRilla to his imprint via a video Tweet showing GloRilla and her friends mobbing their way onto a private plane, where she puts ink to paper to solidify their artistic partnership.
In a report about the signing, Yo Gotti stated, “GloRilla is a natural-born star – she has a different sound and approach that’s needed in hip-hop right now. It’s one of the quickest rises that I’ve seen in my career because she only dropped in late April and now she has the hottest cultural records in music. Glo is hungry for success and determined to win. We look forward to watching her grow as an artist and reach her full potential.”
In response to getting signed up to the CMG imprint, GloRilla revealed her excitement by saying, “I’ve put in years of hard work to get this point and I’m blessed to sign with the hottest label in music with CMG. manifested this moment and trusted my talent even when others didn’t. I’m grateful to Gotti for believing in me and I’m not gonna let up. Trust that I have more new heat on the way.”
CMG Is The Hottest Label Out There…
GloRilla was seen celebrating on Tuesday after Yo Gotti invited the rapper and her entourage onto his private jet to sign the deal in partnership with Interscope Records. Then Gotti blessed her with her own CMG chain and a bag filled with stacks of cash for gifts. Well, that’s his style of signing up deserving rappers.
When GloRilla said that CMG is the hottest label in music, she wasn’t exaggerating. Yo Gotti’s label. CMG Records is home to many rising stars like 42 Dugg, EST Gee and Moneybagg who have seen major success in the last two years either with their debut, follow-ups or joint projects headed by Yo Gotti himself. So we can imagine, that GloRilla is about to do a lot more on the charts.
