Diplomats, D-Block, Tha Dogg Pound…now you can add Terror Squad to the growing list of hip-hop groups signed to Koch Records. With the recent success of Terror Squad’s own DJ Khaled, Koch has decided to ink the entire TS crew to a two-album deal.
“We’ve had major success with Koch and the Terror Squad imprint in the past, especially with DJ Khaled’s two albums,” said Fat Joe on the deal. “We will continue this success with this new Terror Squad deal at Koch Records. It’s a perfect place to unveil our new members.”
Koch GM, Alan Grunblatt reflected on his past relationship with Joey Crack. “I signed Fat Joe to his first record deal in 1992 when I was at Relativity [Records],” said Grunblatt. “I’m thrilled to be working with Joe again, and continuing our relationship with Terror Squad and DJ Khaled. We’ve had great success this year.”
TS producer/DJ Khaled was also excited about the Koch deal. “The Terror Squad albums at Koch are going to be huge,” said Khaled. “Terror Squad/Koch is going to make history. Koch is a label that works their artists to victory. I’m happy to be a part of two big families.”
No word on whether Remy Ma, who extricated herself from Terror Squad last year, will be appearing on the group’s next album.
