After dropping just one album with Columbia Records–2009’s Pray IV Reign–Jim Jones has parted ways with the label for E1 Music, formerly known as Koch Records.

According to XXL, the Harlem rapper recently inked a deal with his former label, where he’ll drop his next solo album, as well as an upcoming mixtape.

Further information regarding the upcoming projects were unknown at press time.

Jones had breakout success while on Koch Records in 2006, when he released his smash single, “We Fly High.”

He released three solo albums under the indie giant–his 2004 debut, On My Way to the Chruch; 2005’s sophomore follow-up Harlem: Diary of a Summer; and 2006’s Hustler’s P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment).

Jones’ reasoning for leaving the major label was unknown at press time.
