Last year, QC inked a joint venture with Capitol Records & their sub-label Motown Records which allowed them to essentially streamline artists up the chain on a “case by case basis.” The first artist to reap the benefits of being streamlined from QC to Motown/Capitol was OG Maco and now Yachty is next up. Coach K, QC‘s COO, has been managing Yachty for a few months (6:30 in interview below) and helped push for this deal to happen.
Yachty has had a huge year this year following his hit singles ‘1 Night’ & ‘Minnesota’ and his breakout mixtape Lil Boat. His unorthodox style has helped propel him as one of the faces of the new generation of hip-hop. Yachty is apart of the 2016 XXL Freshman class as well.
