Young Thug, Migos Sign With Lyor Cohen, Kevin Liles & Todd Moscowitz's 300 Label

Kevin Liles looking to reward artists "taking risks" with his new record label, 300.

Following the release of Young Thug’s debut single “Stoner” in October of last year, there has been much confusion surrounding the Atlanta, Georgia rapper’s label situation.

During a recent interview with Revolt, record executive Kevin Liles confirmed that Thug is in fact signed to his 300 label, which Complex reports is an imprint of Atlantic Records.

“Our business motto is this, if you’re out there taking risks, we wanna reward you with a great deal,” Liles said while speaking with Revolt. “There should be no cookie-cutter deal. There should be a smorgasbord of deals that we could do with entrepreneurs. We built a platform, similar to what we did with Roc-A-Fella, Murder Inc., Disturbing Tha Peace, Ruff Ryders, we just provided platforms for people to build companies.”

Prior to this week’s announcement, it was reported that Young Thug had signed with Cash Money Records. The rapper allegedly made the reveal while walking into a club with Birdman during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans in February.

“Yeah,” Young Thug said, according to a Mass Appeal story published in February. “I signed.”

It was also rumored that Young Thug had signed with Gucci Mane’s Brick Squad Records. The rapper has appeared on several mixtapes and records pushed by the label.

In addition to Young Thug, Atlanta rap trio Migos have also reportedly signed with Liles, Todd Moscowitz, and Lyor Cohen's 300 label.

    Lil Durk and Young Thug are the realest young rappers out there, they are the blueprint of the real niggas and here is why: - Young Thug was arrested for drug possession; - Young Thug was arrested for reckless driving; - Lil Durk was arrested on a weapons charge; - Lil Durk was arrested with a loaded .40-caliber handgun after he threw the weapon in his car when police approached; - they shoot niggas dead; - they beat niggas up; - they sold drugs; - they walk around with illegal weapons; - they go out gunning; - all other rappers rap about being gangster, shooting and killing, but they haven't done it. They ain't no fantasy niggas like: 1. Mobb Deep were 12 / 14 years old when they met at the school of arts. 2. Nas "Escobar" raps about how he is a queens thug, but he wasn't. Lol, nigga only had a ticket for parking his car wrong. So you sold dope? Nigga, the only thing you sold is records. 3. 2Pac never gangbanged 4. Ice Cube was bullied at school and this guy calls himself a "G"? 5. Rick Ross is a legend, but not a streetlegend, but a foodlegend. 6. Eminem raps about killing - he hasn't. He says he hates gay people, but did a song with Elton John? 7. Jay Z raps in open letter about sending shots - he hasn't. Nigga, you never hustled, fucking liar! People in Brooklyn tell other stories... 8. Most of the rappers rap about stuff they haven't done, yet you all support them and say it's real rap. 9. When Rick Ross does it you all claim he is fake and say it's fake rap. This shows that hip hop fans are hypocritical and all these real hip hop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. I never heard your favorite rapper (50 Cent, Jay-Z, Nas, Mobb Deep, Ice Cube, The Game, etc.) diss Lil Durk or Young Thug, because your favorite rapper knows that they will beat him up. Wack or not Lil Durk and Young Thug are the realest young niggas in the rap game and that's a fact. They were drug dealers and gang members before rappers. They have street credentials, they are the only rappers who rap about facts. Your favorite rapper wants to be as real as Young Thug or Lil Durk. That's how real niggas do it. They ain't nothing to fuck with!

    "young thugs over there because his dumbass signed a $15,000 deal with atlantic and got mad that he did that n threw a temper tantrum" ^ lol, this can't be true

    • Anonymous

      I read the whole buzzfeed article jay, thanks lolxsmdh kevin & lyor took over for atlantic partners group because they're under atlantic anyway, gave thug some more cash and will get their cut after gucci gets his cut, after birdman gets his cut (we know baby gonna rob him, lol), after apg gets their initial money and funds used for stoner, and this guy signed a full blown 360 and has no ownership of his masters, but what they're not saying is the length of the original deal, probably 5/10 dude is f#cked, out here lying his ass off like he paid to drop 40 on his wrist and pop corks all gold everything in a 5 star hotel driving a lambo whilst making less than a mcd's worker I feel no sympathy for him

    • Jaywan

      Unfortunately it's completely true. DX won't let me post links but google it. Dude signed a record deal for a waitress's yearly income

  • hmm?

    Good luck trying to recoup that money. Migos and Young Thug won't sell wood, let alone aluminum. I know these guys been in the business a long ass time and they want to capitalize off of the "hottest" and most trendy artists, but are they aware that rap record sales are at their lowest and that those clowns they signed are just a tax write off?

      oh they will recoup that money, believe that, they'll make him hot....... all they did with this is assume his debt and keep his "credit line" going, he'll get the appearances, features, radio play, shows, "endorsements" and the 360 deal will assure they take their part of all of that not counting the second "advance" kevin & lyor just gave him, baby's cut, gucci's cut, the debt he's already accrued asking for loans to keep up the life, touring costs, recording costs, distribution costs, video costs, marketing/promotion costs and owed percentage subtractions so when you see him with ti, wale, ymcmb, looking like he "made it", remember what I typed

      They're banking off singles bro. Unfortunately artists aren't gonna be getting signed based off potential album sales because like you said it's such a terrible market. Unless a nigga has a buzz like Drake then it's all singles money

  • Mushton

    This kid is pure trash, really hoping the hip hop gods make him disappear, take Ross, Montana, and chance with him

    • Your Name

      @LOL, nigga shut the fuck up, you probably think Sage the Gemini is a legend. Niggas like you listen to Trinidad James

    • Hate more than I motivate

      This nigga gone say take ross with French montana and chance you take a L my good sir montana I can agree with but chance is a cool dude and ross been putting in work for the longest

    • lol

      Lmaoo I see you listing the same rappers in every post. 100% convinced you're one of those lame ass edgy white kids who listen to Hopsin and Jedi Mind Tricks.
