by @DomingoTutu

The Harlem newcomer everyone is talking about is ready to make his way to the majors. Today, it was announced that A$AP Rocky had official signed a label deal at Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.

“I feel great about the new deal; I believe it was destined and with a label like Polo Grounds & RCA behind me I don’t see anything stopping us,” said Rocky. “I wanted go with the right partner that can help get a bigger platform to get me and my A$AP crew’s music and movement out.”

Rocky added, “I expect to be in the same league as today’s most relevant artists, and there are just some things you can’t do on your own. The plan is to not only release great music, culture, and style for myself and A$AP worldwide, but to also be the next major artist/exec in the business and make great business men out of my brothers.”

The 23-year-old rapper spoke with The New York Times this week where he gave incite on his personal style, his fashion, and sipping lean, as talked about in his viral smash, “Purple Swag.” A$AP will join Drake on his “Club Paradise Tour” along with Kendrick Lamar this November.
