One of our favorite APA hip hop groups, Far East Movement, announced yesterday that they have officially signed with Cherrytree/Interscope records, home to such giant acts as Sting, Lady Gaga, and Feist. This marks FEM’s foray into the tricky world of major label record deals. Say what you will about major labels, but I think this is a huge accomplishment and marks what I hope is a continuing trend of more APA musicians being put into the spotlight.
Congrats to FEM and their management team! I hope that Cherrytree and Interscope treat them with the respect and, ahem, resources they deserve.
