Okasian has officially joined YG's sub-label The Black Label.


According to an entertainment affiliate on May 3, Okasian signed an exclusive contract with The Black Label.  It appears the two sides decided to seal the deal on May 2 after much discussion last year.


The Black Label told Illgan Sports, "We will do our best to further advance Okasian's music career." The company was founded by YG producer Teddy.  With that being said, Okasian will be under one roof alongside artists Zion.T and Kush.

Okasian released his first single in 2011 and album 'Boarding Procedures' in 2012, where he demonstrated his rapping skills early on. He signed with Hi-Lite Records and received a lot of attention but left Hi-Lite in May of 2016. He also took the stage at SBS '2016 SAF Gayo Daejun' with Big Bang's G-Dragon, BewhY, and CL where they performed '₩1,000,000'. If you're interested in learning more about Okasian you can read a spotlight article on him here.

    They're not going to mention Cohort, or how he and Keith App are putting K-hip-hop​ on the map?

    They don't know anything about KHipHop unless its a mainstream artist like Swings. And I'm pretty sure they don't know about HipHop in general

    YG's sub-labels are gifts from above. The Black Label is on a roll. I cannot be more hyped than this. Can't wait to see them make awesome music together.

    Hi-Lite got bought out by CJE&M a couple of years ago. I've seen most of his newer videos on the youtube channel 88Rising. Maybe he'll have more money backing with this move.
