Body Head Entertainment, the label founded by U.S. boxing champ Roy Jones Jr., has signed New Orleans-based rapper Choppa to a five-album deal. Choppa was previously signed to Take Fo'/New No Limit, which last year released his album "Straight From the N.O.," which hit No. 54 on The Billboard 200. Body Head will release Choppa's still-untitled next album in April.

The artist roster of Pensacola, Fla.-based Body Head also includes Jones, L-Boogie, V.I. Dot.com, Smackola, Donamichi, Perion and the P.G.s.

Jones' debut, "Round One: the Album," was released in 2002 on Body Head and peaked at No. 50 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. His second album is due this summer.
