It seems as though Big Boi and L.A. Reid have reunited with news breaking that the ATLien has signed a deal with Reid’s newest label venture, HitCo.

This is Reid’s first official signing since leaving Epic Records amid a bit of controversy. Nevertheless, since leaving Epic, L.A. Reid and business partner Charles Goldstuck raised some $100M to launch HitCo who has a distribution deal with the independent company EMPIRE. L.A. Reid and Big Boi go back to the ’90s when Reid signed OutKast to Laface Records. While Reid was still manning the ship over at Epic Records, Big Boi dropped Big Grams with the group Phantogram as well as his latest project Boomiverse that was announced while Reid was still CEO but was released after Reid’s departure.
