Cash Money/Hoo Bangin’ Records artist, and DXnext alum Glasses Malone has announced a partnership with car electronics giant Audiobahn. The Watts, California emcee who’s presently on the Independent Grind Tour with Tech N9ne and Jay Rock, will appear on the company’s catalog, as well as on CD samplers of music.
“Glasses Malone represents the next wave of great rappers from the west coast,” said Mark Quest of Raindeo, a spokesman for Audiobahn. “We believe that this collaboration with Glasses is perfectly in-line with the brand’s marketing direction and will be embraced by the Audiobahn audience who are avid fans of west coast Rap.”
