Yo Gotti is the latest rapper to join the powerful lineup at Jay Z’s Roc Nation.
Yo Gotti, the 35-year-old Memphis kingpin-turned-rapper and CEO of Collective Music Group (formerly Cocaine Muzik Group), has struck a deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation. The news comes during a huge week for Gotti, as he has dropped two singles, the Kodak Black-featuring “Weatherman” and today’s “Castro,” featuring the incredible lineup of Kanye West, Big Sean, Quavo, and 2 Chainz. Both songs will appear on his next mixtape, Cocaine Muzik 9, which drops next Friday (Dec. 23).
Gotti shared pictures from his official Roc Nation signing, showing a champagne celebration with Hov himself, today on Instagram. He dedicated the moment to his widely respected late manager Mel Carter, who died last month. At this point, the stipulations of Gotti’s signing are unclear, and it is not known if the deal involves just him or all of the artists at CMG, who include Blac Youngsta, Snootie Wild, and MoneyBagg Yo — all from Memphis.
Congrats to Gotti on the well-deserved achievement. CM9 is sounding like one of his hardest tapes yet!
