Cardi B Signs to Quality Control Management
The rapper's career will be managed by Quality Control’s Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “Pee” Thomas for Solid Foundation, the management wing of Quality Control. Cardi joins a squad that includes Migos and Lil Yachty. Migos solidified their status as flat-out on superstars with last year's platinum-selling album, Culture, and followed up with Culture II. For his part, Yachty's been a ubiquitous internet presence and even appeared in a Sprite ad with LeBron James. Safe to say those wins were assisted by Lee and Thomas.
The Bronx-born rapper seems to have left her old manager behind in this move to Solid Foundation. Klenord “Shaft” Raphael, head of KSR Group, was instrumental in Cardi B's early career in the rap game. His KSR Group credits can be found on her first mixtape, Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1, as well as Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2.
This news arrives just one day after Cardi revealed the cover and title for her debut album, Invasion of Privacy (March 26). "My album cover !!! LADIES AND GENTS ! My album INVASION OF PRIVACY will be out next week April 6!!!!!!!," she wrote in a tweet unveiling her album cover.
