Bobby Shmurda’s new deal with came as a shock to many, at the time, Shmurda was a relatively unknown in the music industry. Jahlil Beats gave him light when he handed him the “Hot Nigga” instrumental (previously owned by Lloyd Banks). Even with a hit in his hand, he had to go present his work to a label in hopes of getting some kind of distribution deal.
Shumurda and his team took it to Epic records in hopes of getting a deal. After this audition, they inked him and the rest is history.
