The ink is officially dry. Billboard learned on Monday (March 11) that 42 Dugg has signed to Yo Gotti’s CMG label in collaboration with Lil Baby’s 4PF. The East Detroit native rose to prominence behind his gritty breakout single “The Streets.”
“I think 42 Dugg is a superstar,” Gotti tells Billboard. “He’s got the voice, music, look, and the hustle. I spent the last couple of weeks moving around with him. Just in Detroit alone, I watched him and how he moves and how ppl react to his presence and his music. Also, how he takes his shit serious. I’m all in!”
During the Detroit stop of Meek Mill’s The Motvation Tour Saturday night (March 9), the Philly native brought out Dugg in his hometown. In the midst of the performance, Yo Gotti announced the signing and knighted 42 with his very own iced-out CMG chain in front of the crowd, signifying his new allegiance to the Collective Music Group.
