Top Dawg Entertainment added to its talented roster this week (Aug. 8). TDE founder Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith announced the signing of Reason, a Carson, Calif.-bred rapper who gained exposure when he appeared on the label's Black Panther soundtrack on a song called "Seasons."
"INTRODUCING @iam_reason TO THE TEAM. 'The Soul,'" Top Dawg wrote in a tweet. He included a link to Reason's new song "The Soul" in the post as well.
Reason also tweeted about the good news: "Proud to say I’m part of the family! #TDE The Soul."
He also expanded on his signing in a lengthier Instagram post. "Finally able to proudly put this out and say thank you to @topdawgent for welcoming me to the family," he wrote. "And a huge thank you to @dangerookipawaa for taking a chance on me. You saved my life and I’m here to work. First release of many! “The Soul” link in my bio!"
Before the inked dried on the contract, Reason released a new song dubbed "The Soul" where he delivers passionate bars about his come-up. It's basically a classic "I've finally made it" kind of vibe, and it's dope.
"Patience, new beginnings coming/Ni**as been had drive, just had to get their engine running/You either die chasing dreams or you live for nothing," he spits on the song.
