Kurupt FM, the fictional pirate radio station at the heart of BBC‘s cult-appeal People Just Do Nothing series, has been unveiled as the latest addition to XL Recordings’ impressive roster. The self-professed best MCs in the world are now signed to the label that handled distribution for the physical release of Frank Ocean’s Blonde, as well as including the likes of King Krule, Arca and Wiki on its books.

There isn’t much news about what the signing means for Kurupt FM, but the collective did tease new music on its Instagram with the announcement of The Lost Tape – which is set to drop later this year. The fourth series of People Just Do Nothing is currently airing on the BBC, and the Kurupt FM boys are about to set off around the country on their latest tour in late October.

If you’re unfamiliar with Kurupt FM, check out the crew’s appearance in the video for Jorja Smith’s recent single ”On My Mind.”
