Queens, New York-based rapper Grafh is set to reap the benefits of a new deal between his recording home, Black Hand Entertainment and Koch Records.
Grafh's forthcoming album, The Evolution, will be the first project under a new alliance between Williams Black Hand Entertainment and Koch.
"Koch Records has been at the forefront of indie music for some time," Black Hand CEO Chaz William told AllHipHop.com. "This is the perfect climate for what we do at Black Hand as an independent movement."
The Koch/Black Hand deal is the latest development in the career of Grafh, who caught the attention of music fans as a fixture on the mixtape scene.
Songs from Grafh, who is also Black Hand Entertainments President, have been featured on the small screen on HBO's Entourage, Fox's Method and Red and BET's Ultimate Hustler, as well as various video games, including EA Sport's NFL Streets, Saint's Row and 25 to Life.
Grafh's current single, "Like Ohh recently hit radio nationwide.
Like Ohh' is the first in a succession of singles leading up to the release of my first commercial album, The Evolution. It's the perfect summer street record that recognizes the change in the climate of the music industry," Grafh said.
Grafhs The Evolution is slated to hit stores this fall.
A remix to "Like Ohh" featuring Busta Rhymes is set to arrive at radio outlets in the coming weeks.
