(AllHipHop News) Rapper Flo Rida is expanding his record label, International Music Group, with the addition of Canadian pop singer Tyler Medeiros.
Flo Rida inked Tyler Medeiros, 16, to his IMG label, through a joint venture with Canadian-based label CP Records, which is co-owned by rapper Belly.
Tyler Medeiros is being touted as one of the flagship artists on the IMG label, which is currently signing various artists, in different genres of music.
“Tyler Medeiros is a superstar, it’s as simple as that,” IMG CEO Flo Rida told AllHipHop.com. “His energy and commitment to producing quality music embodies everything we are doing at IMG and we look forward to quickly watching him become a household name.”
