Over the past few years, Demrick has established himself as one of the future stars from the hip hop scene in Los Angeles. He has some big collaborations under his belt, teaming up with Xzibit and B-Real for one of his recent projects, last year. While working with the veterans helped to further establish himself, Demrick is going solo.
Until this week, Demrick was a free agent, but he changed all of this. Few artists are actively pursuing major label record deals, given all of the changes going on with the major companies. Instead, similar to the old days, more artists are going independent to keep their control.
Demrick made the choice to stay independent, signing with Battle Axe Records. Now, he is on Madchild’s roster and this is where Losing Focus, his official solo debut album will be released. The release date for the album has yet to be set, but Demrick will be going out on tour with Madchild, starting on January 9.
