Valee stayed the course last year and it resulted in a major career move to kick off 2018. The Chicago rapper has signed with fellow Chi-town legend, Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music label, Def Jam announced Thursday (Feb. 1). The “Shell” artist has created buzz in the industry through his VTM mixtape and collaboration project with St. Louis rapper, ChaseTheMoney.
Pusha T introduced the newest member of the roster on Instagram. The G.O.O.D. Music president captioned the photo of the duo, “If you know, you know…if you don’t, you soon will. @valee #GOODMusic #Chicago.” Valee admitted that King Push hopped on his “Miami” remix and according to MTV, there is a video on the way.
The soft-spoken rapper recently made an appearance on Chance The Rapper and Jeremih‘s holiday mixtape, Lil‘ Mama Re-Wrapped. Valee told MTV that he has multiple songs in the stash with the “Don’t Tell ‘Em” artist, “So we got some stuff. We’re going to definitely put it out. Maybe I’ll ask him if we can put out like a small EP or small tape or something. You never know.”
