Toronto, ON – Rumours are floating around about OVO / Reps-Up’s P. Reign signing with Sony Music Entertainment. No additional details were provided by HipHopCanada’s source but if there’s any truth to it we should see more info about the deal soon. P. Reign is generally associated with Drake when it comes to mainstream coverage but the Toronto artist also has a budding connection to A$AP Rocky, who is signed to Sony (along with A$AP Ferg).
As just a couple of examples: Rocky brought Reign out on stage (with Chubbs) during his Toronto tour stop back in August and Rocky is featured on Reign’s “We Them Niggas” single. It’s not hard to imagine P. Reign catching the attention of Sony execs or Rocky playing a hand in making the connection himself. After all, who wouldn’t be interested in a talented, unsigned, charting artist who’s spent the last few years working and learning from his friend, the Grammy-winning and record breaking, Drake? Labels have been keeping a watchful eye on Toronto to find the city’s next big success story and Reign seems like a perfect candidate. He’s currently preparing for the release of his Dear America mixtape which is said to include Drake, French Montana, Waka Flocka Flame, and, of course, A$AP Rocky. Stay tuned for more details.
