Yo Gotti is intent on building his label within the confines of his hometown, as last week he officially signed buzzing Memphis rapper MoneyBagg Yo, who has now joined a CMG roster that also includes Blac Youngsta and Snootie Wild. Gotti confirmed the partnership by presenting MoneyBagg with a large money bag filled with many smaller money bags; the off-the-books signing bonus was said to amount to 200 large. They celebrated the deal by teaming up on "Doin 2 Much," and today, on Halloween, the boss has joined his new signee for an entire mixtape, entitled 2 Federal.
With 19 tracks in total, Gotti and MoneyBagg handle basically all of the raps on 2 Federal. Though the second track is called "No Features," there is one guest spot reserved for Blac Youngsta on "Gang Gang." Producers on the tape include Karltin Bankz, Ben Billions, 808 Mafia, and a somewhat surprising choice in Private Club's K Swisha, who is credited on three tracks.
