Kollosus Gets Major Backing
Kollosus recently gained attention with his buzzworthy song, "Settin' Standards," which featured fellow Atlanta all-star Gucci Mane. The single, "Breakin' Bread," is heating up in the streets and headed to radio in January 2010. The infectious song showcases the 23-year-old rapper's confident flow, laid back but in-your-face verbal agility on the mic and is sure to be a club banger.
"Block Entertainment is a force to be reckoned with in the hip hop arena; they have continuously churned out undeniable hip hop stars," said Leonard Brooks, SVP Urban A&R, EMI Music. "As we grow Capitol's urban roster, this association with Block Entertainment makes perfect sense. We are excited to sign Kollosus as well; he has a skillful flow that reflects his years growing up in Atlanta and his Jamaican-born roots. He has a unique sense of street swagger with a global appeal."
"I am tremendously excited to partner with Capitol Records, a company with a proven track record in recognizing talent," said Russell "Big Block" Spencer, CEO of Block Entertainment. "As an emerging voice of hip hop, Kollosus promises to capture the attention of the discerning hip hop audience. The collaboration between Capitol and Block Entertainment is vital to introducing him to a wider audience."
