Even though Young Chris hasn’t put out an official album since 2005’s Brothers From Another, the Philly emcee managed to stay relevant. Young Chris formerly of  Roc-A-Fella/Young Gunz  just signed a major deal with Division 1/Universal Motown Records. Young C is the first artist signed to Division 1, a company owned by singer/songwriter/producer Rico Love.

In an exclusive interview with XXL magazine, Young C said, “A month or two ago, Rico reached out, he had seen some of the viral videos that I had shot. One of the first things he said to me was like, ‘Yo, I almost forgot how nice you was! What’s the [label] situation? What’s going on? I told him, ‘I’m free.’ I had two [other] deals on the table at the time.”

In a video , Rico Love said, “My first time meeting with Jay-Z was when I was performing with Usher on The Truth tour in 2004. The first thing I said to Jay when I met him backstage was, ‘Yo, I love Young Chris. I’m a big fan of Young Chris. He said, ‘Yo that’s my little man; he’s got a bright future.’ I always remembered that.” Peep the video below.

Young C’s new mixtape, The Reintroduction, is scheduled to be out on November 20. Chris also says “expect to hear a single for the album by early next year.”

Young Jeezy Gets His Wig Push Back Again, Will TM103 Ever See The Light Of Day?

Please check the four side banner ads on the left and take advantage of the exclusive offers.

Rapper Young Jeezy’s forthcoming LP Thug Motivation 103 has been pushed back again. This is the 4th time the album has been pushed back. The last released date was September 28th. Reps from Def Jam are saying that TM103 is scheduled to hit stores and online December 14th. Since the spring of this year, Jeezy has released three singles from the album —“Jizzle,” “All White Everything” featuring Yo Gotti and “Lose My Mind” featuring Plies.

I like Young Jeezy music and I think he’s a dope artist but I don’t think this album will see the light of day. To hold you guys over until the album drops, you can download Jeezy’s latest mixtape The Last Laugh.
