Tyga just secured one hell of a bag after inking a record deal with Columbia Records. Deets inside…

Tyga is ready to take his music to the next level.

The west coast rapper just signed with Columbia Records in a multi-million deal. It’s unclear how many millions, but he def just secured a major bag.

After parting ways with Cash Money, the “Taste” rapper did his own thing, releasing his seventh studio album Legendary via EMPIRE. By the way, "Taste" almost has one billion views on YouTube.

Now, he’s under the SONY Music umbrella and he’s gearing up for major moves in the industry.

“They definitely understand the global brand,” Tyga told Variety about Columbia Records. “I have a lot of fans worldwide — in places I’ve never been like South America, and in places I have been like Asia and Europe. They can help bring that to a larger scale. Doing it independently, you don’t really have those teams to help worldwide. Sony, if you look at the history from what they’ve done from Pharrell to Beyonce to Adele — then you look at Lil Nas X, one of their new artists that’s blown up this year — they’ve done a lot for artists globally, for their brand. That’s why I wanted to partner up with them.”

The “Go Loko” rapper - ex-boyfriend of Kylie Jenner - is ready to expand his brand on a global scale.

Tyga was associated with Cash Money – distributed by Repbulic Records – and before that he was with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, brokered by senior executive Shawn Holiday. Shawn brought him into the Sony Family after he got cool with Columbia Records chairman and CEO Ron Perry (pictured below with Tyga).

“I’ve always wanted to work with Ron Perry,” says Tyga, who first became aware of the executive as president of Songs Music Publishing, home to Mustard’s 2011 track “Rack City,” one of Tyga’s biggest career hits to date. “I’ve been a fan of how he’s been able to spot talent; how he’s been able to A&R; and to publish people. And likewise, he’s been following my career for a long time. It makes sense for me to do something with Ron. If I was going to go anywhere major, I want to go somewhere where the head person in charge is really about the music and really understands me.”

The "Rack City" rapper hopped on social media to thank God for blessing him:

 

Congrats, Tyga!
