Brockhampton has signed with RCA Records, the hip-hop collective announced via social media on Friday (March 30).
Along with an image of the RCA logo and “Brockhampton” scrawled over writing, the group posted, “As of March 30th 2018, Brockhampton will be artists under a recording contract for RCA Records.”
Billboard has confirmed the news with Brockhampton’s rep, but it is unclear whether the deal will include solo projects released by Brockhampton’s members, who include Kevin Abstract, Ameer Vann, Merlyn Wood, Dom McLennon, Matt Champion, Russell “Joba” Boring and others.
Abstract called the move a “new era” on Twitter, but also stated, “Nothing changes we still in this living room making songs making out and all of that rca just gon help us push this gay agenda”

Last year was a big one for Brockhampton, as the group released its Saturation trilogy with three albums between June and December on their own label Question Everything, Inc. with Empire Distribution.
The signing is the latest in a string of big hip-hop signings lately. It was reported earlier this month Interscope had signed Juice WRLD with a $3 million joint venture deal and that Warner Bros. Records signed Lil Pump for about $8 million after the “Gucci Gang” rapper’s camp realized his original contract was void as it was signed while he was underage and not properly certified.
