Benny the Butcher has inked a new record deal with legendary hip-hop label Def Jam Recordings.

During a recent appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, newly-appointed Def Jam Recordings executive Snoop Dogg announced that he had signed Benny to the legacy label.

“I’m on Def Jam Records right,” Snoop said. “I’m a creative consultant executive, and just to let you know that it don’t exist no more, I’m going to announce on your show that I just signed Benny The Butcher, and he is one of the hardest rappers up out of Buffalo, New York. So that’s showing that there are no more lines to be crossed. We are doing what we’re supposed to be doing. The butcher’s coming.”

“Signed my major deal finally this for DJ Shay,” the rapper wrote on Instagram in celebration of the deal. “Griselda x B$F this is BIG…Huge Buffalo we did it again.”
