After serving a 14-month sentence in a federal prison on a gun charge, independent label BIG CAT CEO MARLON ROWE returns and announces a seven-figure deal with ATLANTIC RECORDS for artist GUCCI MANE.
Known for hits "Icy" featuring YOUNG JEEZY and "Go Head," GUCCI's 2005 independent breakthrough album "Trap House" sold more than 150,000 units.
"During my time of incarceration, President MELVIN BREEDEN, TOMMY BOY President TOM SILVERMAN and his staff became a vital part of helping me maintain the cohesiveness of BIG CAT RECORDS and all of my business endeavors," said ROWE. "I was able to clear my head and put things in perspective. I'm a wiser man as a result of it."
