I knew eventually San Quinn’s little cousin Ya Boy was going to get the opportunity to make his mark on the international music scene. Now that Akon has reportedly signed Ya Boy to his “Kon Live” record label whos roster includes Lady Gaga, T-Pain, Colby O’Donis, Kardinal Offishall, Rock City, French Montana, and more.
“Ya Boy is one of the hardest workers today…He’s an amazing artist that never got a chance to shine. He never gave up and now he has a chance to shine not only on the West Coast but internationally.”
Shyne has inked a seven-figure record deal with Def Jam, which ends a bidding war that included Dr. Dre/Jimmy Iovine. The plan is to have Shyne work out of London. That is, if he can get past UK immigration.
Sources also reported that Shyne has been working with Kyambo “Hip-Hop” Joshua for a while now. (Joshua and his HipHopSince1978 partner, Gee Roberson, also manage Lil Wayne, Drake, Young Jeezy, etc.)
We got a chance to document the signing of Aslyum/Warner’s newest artist, Outasight. The video tells Outasight’s story, starting with his modest beginnings and continuing through his recent success.
Be on the lookout for his new project, “Further” dropping for free download December 15th (courtesy of LRG clothing), and his album, “From Here to Eternity” dropping next year courtesy of Asylum/Warner.
