WIZ KHALIFA's TAYLOR GANG ENT has signed a label deal with ATLANTIC RECORDS after five years of independent distribution.

Said TAYLOR GANG co-founder WILL DZOMBAK: "We are very pleased to expand our business with our partners at ATLANTIC RECORDS/WARNER MUSIC. This is a great step forward for TAYLOR GANG as we get ready to move into the new year and focus on growth. We are all very excited."
Added WIZ: "Very excited about the deal with the GANG. These guys are my family and friends first, now we're gonna take this shit to the next level.”
Commented ATLANTIC RECORDS Chairman/COO JULIE GREENWALD: “WIZ is an amazingly talented artist, songwriter and entrepreneur. We’ve been so proud to have him as an ATLANTIC recording artist for the past six years, during which he also built TAYLOR GANG into a powerhouse hip-hop brand with a phenomenal fan following. We are thrilled to be partnering with WIZ and TAYLOR GANG to take his crew to the next level, and welcome them to the ATLANTIC family.”
