If you were a little caught off guard by the release of King Louie’s first single “Val Venis” today, you weren’t alone. The record was dubbed as the first SINGLE from Louie’s long-awaited Dope & Shrimp project; but what you probably didn’t know, was that Dope & Shrimp will be dropping via Lawless Inc./Epic Records/Sony.
Yep, you read that right — King Louie has officially inked a deal with Epic Records. The deal is through Lou’s current home, Lawless Inc., which is a Chicago-based label started by Larry Wilson and John Monopoly. Epic’s partnership with Lawless Inc. starts with Louie’s Dope & Shrimp, and today, the label moved on “Val Venis” as the first single.
