Rittz has announced his official signing to Tech N9ne’s Strange Music imprint.

In a video released to XXLMag.com, Tech explained why he wanted to add the Gwinnett Country, Georgia rapper to his roster, stating that a friend put him on to his music.

“After I met the guy for the first time, I went to one of his shows in Nashville and I was like, damn! So good that I had to say Trav, we gotta see what we can do about this. And the guy who was telling me about this guy was Yelawolf, but the guy that I said we have to sign, we have to get, the motherfucker’s name is Rittz, white Jesus.”

Rittz is currently gearing up for his tour with close associate Yelawolf on his “Slumerican” tour, which kicks off on September 13th at Huntsville, Alabama’s Crossroads.
