Months after asking Atlantic Records to renegotiate his deal to put him on par with NBA YoungBoy, Kodak Black has stated, he will not re-sign with Atlantic when his contract is up, and will instead join Capitol Records. Kodak owes two more records per his contract, including his upcoming release Kutthroat Bill: Vol 1 hitting all platforms October 18th.
The Sniper Gang boss didn’t sound too happy about his current contract after realizing NBA YoungBoy had leaked information about a 60 million dollar deal with the label. “Lil YoungBoy, he bout to fulfill his deal. I’m fulfilling my deal too,” Kodak said on Instagram Live at the time. “I definitely can’t let him be out his deal and moving on and getting to that real bag, and I just be sitting back and just still in my fucking deal. No! … I’m getting out my deal and I’m finna get that big ol’ bag.”
All of this unfolded when Orlando Wharton, who originally signed Kodak Black to Atlantic back in 2015, joined Capitol Records as executive VP and president of the relaunched Priority Records.
When Kodak Black finally joins Capitol Records, he will be added to a roster that includes artists like Doechii, Masego, Toosii, Capella Grey, Kay Flock, TM88 and more.
