Former Epic/Sony rapper Grafh of Queens, New York has departed his former recording home and inked a deal with the Roc-A-Fella Records.
While details are scarce, Grafh rejoiced. He told AllHipHop.com, I moved my label Blackhand to get distribution from Roc-A-Fella Records, because they understand the street grind. Clearly, its a benefit to be on their team.
Grafh said he didnt feel that his former label was able to execute his vision properly. Sony made much mistakes with my project. Theres a lot of music out there that my fans dont know about, he said. Im not B2K, and I am not trying to be marketed like that. Sony wasnt used to what I do. They were lost in what I presented to them.
The Blackhand rapper has already recorded The Damage Is Done with producer Kanye West and other in-house producers. Additionally, he hosted the most recent mixtape by DJ Green Lantern of Shady Records.
Overall, despite being uprooted label-wise, he was ecstatic about his future offerings.
Finally fans can see what the Blackhand label is all about, he concluded.
