Chicago, Illinois Hip Hop artist Witness, recently signed a deal with Miami based Indie label, He Paid The Price Records (aka HPTP). The signing comes after months of [Witness] building a lasting relationship with HPTP and releasing stellar remixes that started to create noise within the [CHH] genre.
“Having Witness becoming apart of our family is only going to strengthen what we already have here at HPTP” says Founder Darwin Garcia.
As a newcomer, Witness has been dropping remixes over secular and non-secular instrumentals since early 2014, but it wasn’t until he released his “KING WITHOUT A CROWN REMIX” that audiences began to take notice.
“When I heard that remix I told him to trash his old stuff and to keep making music like that!” said Marty of Social Club.
Witness is currently promoting his ‘LEADING WHILE BLEEDING’ EP which will be released officially under the label December 23rd. He has however already released several singles from the project, such as ‘DEAD OR IN JAIL’ featuring J’Son & Brother 3, and ‘TALKN BOUT’ which features Skrip & KIDD. The EP will also feature guest appearances from Oscar Urbina, Angie Rose, VOP and more. Production credits include Grammy-nominated Rey King, SKRIP, Sinima Beats, KIDD, Steve-T and Hollywood Legend.
As of late, Witness has been actively performing in Florida and Chicago, sharing stages with Social Club, Serge, FLAME, V. Rose, Family Force 5, KJ52, as well as label mate and first artist from HPTP Still Diligent.
It seems like there are great things in the works for artist Witness at HPTP. Pre-orders for the “Leading While Bleeding” EP are now available on i-Tunes.
