Representatives from Battery/Jive Records just confirmed to HipHopDX that the New York label’s latest acquisition is none other than Bronx, New York emcee and DXnext alum Mickey Factz.

The signing comes after rumors had swirled last year of Factz signing with Roc Nation. Although details will release next week, the emcee’s debut is expected this fall.

Since 2006, Mickey has released several acclaimed mixtapes, including Heaven’s Fallout . He has worked with The Cool Kids on unofficial single “Rockin’ N’ Rollin’ (Remix)” as well as Afrika Bambaataa (“Zulu, We Don’t Stop Yawl ), B.o.B. (“Mind Got Blown” ) and Kid Cudi (“Do My Do” ). Factz also recently appeared as himself in a Honda ad campaign.

HipHopDX will keep you posted.
