Big Boi Signs to L.A. Reid’s New Company Hitco
After dropping two solo projects on Def Jam Records and another two on Epic Records, Big Boi is now signing with a new company and has inked a deal with L.A. Reid's HitCo.
According to a Variety report from Weds., March 21, the one-half of OutKast becomes Reid's first singing since the music executive left Epic in May 2017 following allegations of sexual harassment. With his signing made official, Reid and HitCo are now working on getting Big Boi's "All Night," which is featured in Apple's "Animoji Yourself" commercial, on the radio.
Since taking a break from OutKast, Big Boi has released three studio albums and one EP. His debut offering, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, was first released in 2010, while his latest album, Boomiverse, dropped in June.
Along with his new signing, Big Boi also shared new tour dates for the third leg of his Daddy Fatt Saxxx Tour. Kicking off on May 17 in St. Louis, Mo., Big Boi will make stops in New Orleans, Tampa, Fla., Charlotte, N.C. and Atlanta. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.
