Manhattan-based Babygrande Records has announced that it has signed Brooklyn, New York artist/producer Kasim Keto.

“Working on several local projects and trying to gain notice became a facilitator of my musical talents,” is how Keto describes his activities in recent years. “Babygrande [Records] sees my vision and offered me a way to build a career as a producer that I could not refuse.”

Previously, Babygrande has worked with producers including Blue Sky Black Death, Dame Grease and Diggin’ In The Crates co-founder Diamond D.

To kick off Kasim Keto’s studio discography, Babygrande will release Long Car Rides on November 19. Last November, the imprint dropped Freeway’s Diamond In The Ruff.
