“I’m excited to continue my journey with L.A. Reid and his staff at the new Epic Records,” Astro said in a press release. “The first time LA saw me he said I’d be a star, and I can’t wait to get to work and prove him right. 2011 was Dope, but 2012 is gonna be Epic!”

“I am very blessed and grateful to God for the opportunity to become a part of the Epic family,” Marcus said. “I am excited about working with my mentor L.A. Reid, and I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work. This is history in the making, let’s go!”
