This news just broke through airwaves of the internet, and I wanted to make sure that it is relayed to the public as quickly as possible. Recording artist Derek Minor just signed a record deal with label, Entertainment One, additionally, he has a new project set to release in the first quarter of 2015. Minor is a fairly big name in the Christian Hip-Hop realm, as well as making a splash on several Billboard charts. Below is the attached press release detailing the deal, as well as information on Derek Minor for those not familiar with his name.

Singer-songwriter and producer Derek Minor has signed a distribution and label services deal with Entertainment One for his upcoming album… Empire.
