The revelation comes not long before the 26-year-old released his album, Free Dem Boyz. The “Been Turnt” rapper saw his big break last year, thanks to his contribution to Lil Baby's “We Paid.” The duet performed the double-platinum hit at BET Awards.
“This is 42 Dugg's moment,” Warner Chappell Music President of A&R, U.S., Ryan Press said. “His performance on ‘We Paid' has earned praise from fans, fellow artists, and critics alike, and I believe he's well on his way to becoming one of the industry's next big stars.”
42 Dugg also shared his own remarks concerning the agreement, stating, “Ryan and the whole Warner Chappell crew are connected to some of the best artists and producers in the game and I have a lot of respect for their work. I look forward to collaborating with their team and taking my music to the next level.”
