Yo Gotti sagte selbst über den Vertragsschluss:
â€œThis is a solid partnership that allows me to do what I do on bigger platforms, with the respect and support of the Epic team. Throughout L.A. Reid’s career, I realize he has been a part of creating some of the biggest superstars in the industry. I feel there is no better person to partner with.â€
Yo Gotti hatte, eigenen Angaben zufolge, diverse Angebote von anderen großen Labels bekommen, doch entschied sich letztendlich für das, was sich für ihn am besten anfühlte.
â€œThe independent success we’ve had thus far with our tour, merchandising and projects from myself and my first artist Zed Zilla has given me the perfect opportunity to create the best possible partnership for CMG. I have no doubt that we will take our movement to its pinnacle with Epic Records.â€
