4Batz Gets Signed by Drake

According to a Billboard report, published on Friday (March 8), 4Batz has signed a deal with Drake’s OVO Sound label. The music publication reports it’s a license deal specifically for the recording of an EP. This comes after a fierce bidding war among various labels erupted following the release of the young rap upstart’s track, “Act II: Date @ 8,” during Christmas week of last year. The song debuted on the Hot 100 at No. 77 in January. It peaked at No. 59.

An insider told Billboard the songs “Act II: Date @ 8,” “Good Neighbours” and “Home” were among those that attracted the attention of record labels interested in signing 4Batz to a deal.

XXL has reached out to reps for both Drake and 4Batz for comment.
