      Known mostly for his silly skits on Dipset mixtapes and his appearances on Cam’Ron’s projects, Freekey Zekey is also a stout business who has just secured a deal between Asylum Records (Lil Boosie, Cadillac Don) and Diplomat Records that will distribute his new album, Book of Ezekiel and launch a new label, Dipset South, in Spring 2007.

      "At the end of the day it’s about getting that cake," Freekey Zekey said of working with Asylum execs Todd Moscowitz and Joie "Joey I.E." Manda to hammer out a deal. "You’ve got to capitalize on the right time – everything is timing. We were all sitting in the studio, and Cam was discussing what was going on with his deal, and they cut him off like, ‘What’s popping with Zeke? Let’s get it rockin!" They were happy, and of course a smart person, a hustler like Todd and Joey I.E., they knew – ‘We might as well get him now before someone else gets him.’"

      The label will launch after Zekey drops his album and they are currently looking for artists. Don’t worry though, you don’t have to be southern to get a deal with the new imprint.

      “When you say Dipset South, it’s only because it’s based there,” Zekey said. “We don’t limit it to being in the South with Southern artists. Anything could happen – we could have country music or R&B or elevator music. It’s worldwide as far as a record label.”

      In the meantime, you can keep an eye out for a new mixtape from Zekey to prelude the spring release of his album.
