Trick Daddy's Slip-N-Slide Label Goes To Def Jam
Under the new deal, Slip-N-Slide will be launching the careers of several new acts, starting with Rick Ross. Ross' single "Hustlin" has generated a strong buzz in the streets and features Busta Rhymes on its remix. His album, Career Criminal, is slated to hit stores this summer.
Through the venture, Slip-N-Slide will also debut Atlanta MC Citty, whose's album, Da Cookie Man, will drop later this year.
"We met with every major label head across the country, but the level of respect that Def Jam showed for Slip-N-Slide was priceless," Slip-N-Slide President/CEO Ted "Touche" Lucas said in a statement. "Jay-Z saw Slip-N-Slide's vision and was willing to do everything in his power to make that vision a reality."
With the new deal, Slip-N-Slide also hopes to branch out and sign acts from various regions of the country. Trick, Trina and new act Plies will continue to record for Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic.
