YG has been living his best life with Kehlani even after a rocky bump in the relationship where he was caught kissing another woman in November. The couple ended up working things out as they continue to show affection towards each other. The Compton rapper also recently released a new song titled “Konclusions” with her.
YG is making more moves with his career as his 4Hunnid record label has now inked a joint venture deal with Epic Records, according to Variety. They will be releasing and distributing his music from now on.
“Me and my team have been doing innovative, legendary stuff for years—helping keep the West Coast alive,” YG said in a statement. “Now, Epic comes through at the best possible time with a platform for our expansion. I’m proud of this opportunity and will make the most of it.”
The first music release after this deal will be Compton’s Day Sulan. She appeared on YG’s “Her Story” record on his “4Real 4Real” album that dropped last spring. Epic chairwoman and CEO, Sylvia Rhône, also released a statement regarding her excitement for the partnership and how YG represents the new face of hip-hop.
“We at Epic are delighted by this joint venture with YG and his forward-thinking 4Hunnid brand. YG perfectly represents the new face of hip-hop music: versatile, creative, multifaceted, and steeped in history but versed in current trends. This marks an exciting addition to our roster and offerings.”
Epic also has superstars such Future, DJ Khaled, Drake, Rick Ross, French Montana, Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Lopez. YG and his artists will definitely have plenty of firepower to work with.
