"That's Why He's Hot," NY Rapper Mims Signs With Capitol

 After a lengthy bidding war between several major labels, Washington Heights, New York rapper Mims has officially signed with EMI/Capitol Records.

Over the past few months Mims has garnered nationwide attention with his independently released single, "This is Why I'm Hot." The song is currently generating an estimated one thousand spins per week on radio stations across the country.

Reggae legend Junior Reid and artist Cham recently joined Mims on the remix of "This is Why I'm Hot," which has quickly become highly requested on radio as well.

The New York MC is said to be nearing completion of his debut album, Music Is My Savior, which is scheduled for an early 2007 release.
