Rumor Mill: Is LA Reid Courting Outkast And Ciara To Epic Records?

Aside from making power moves on the music competition show X Factor, LA Reid is working night-and-day in hopes carrying on the Epic Records empire. The Hollywood Reporter says Reid is close to signing Atlanta based artists Outkast and Ciara.

The executive has been busy re-establishing the label by signing new acts like Future, best known for his “Tony Montana” track featuring Drake, along with music duo Karmin, who are known for their Youtube renditions of some of today’s hip-hop hits.

There hasn’t been an official confirmation on the signing but if it does hold true, expect a big announcement to come soon.
