Yo Gotti continues to expand his empire, as the veteran hip-hop mogul on Tuesday signed GloRilla to his CMG imprint.
GloRilla, who’s fresh off catapulting into the mainstream on the back of her breakout hit single, “FNF (Let’s Go),” joins a talented roster that already includes Moneybagg Yo, 42 Dugg, EST Gee, Mozzy, Blac Youngsta, Blocboy JB, and Lil Poppa, among others.
“GloRilla is a natural born star – she has a different sound and approach that’s needed in hip-hop right now,” Gotti said. “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.”
GloRilla added, “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. I manifested this moment and trusted my talent even when others didn’t. I’m grateful for Gotti for believing in me and I’m not gonna let up. Trust that I have more new heat on the way.”
As soon as the deal was announced, GloRilla took to Instagram to post a video of herself signing the contract on Gotti’s jet. The clip features the CMG founder handing his newest signee with a bag cash, which a source close to Complex confirmed was filled with $500,000. GloRilla was also given a chain during the signing.
GloRilla is the fifth artist who’s signed to CMG this year, following R&B artist Lehla Samia, Jacksonville rapper Lil Poppa, 10Percent, and California rapper Mozzy.
