Jon Connor Reportedly Signs To Aftermath

According to a report by Rap Radar, Connor announced his signing to the Aftermath label in his recent BET cypher.

As reported by HipHopDX yesterday (September 28), Flint, Michigan native emcee Jon Connor participated in BET’s annual Hip Hop Awards cypher alongside Wax, Rapsody, Emis Killa and Rittz at a taping that took place in Atlanta. Connor was grouped in the first of eight cyphers scheduled to air on BET on October 15 at 8 pm EST. Other cypher participants included Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson and Kevin Hart amongst others.

According to a Tweet and consequent report by Rap Radar, Connor announced his being signed to Aftermath by Dr. Dre during the filming of the segment as a part of his cypher verse. The news was also confirmed by blogger Karen Civil who was also in attendance.

Jon Connor basically announced signing to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath in his cypha.

The news comes just months after pictures and reports of Connor and Dr. Dre together in the studio. In an interview with MLive, Connor admitted the pride he felt in Dre’s approval. “He was excited about the respect he had for my artistry,” he said. “Dre is a very particular person. He knows what he wants to hear,” Connor said. “…I made it through Dr. Dre’s chopping block of potential. Just to know he sees something in me, or that he respects what I do, or has an appreciation for what I bring to hip-hop, is something I put on my mantle.”

Connor’s meeting the West Coast legend was a product of a 2012 fall tour with Xzibit who eventually helped the two get in contact. Connor continued by describing the learning experience that has resulted out of working alongside the Beats headphone founder and CEO. “Any time I’m around him is constant growth for me,” he said. “He’s an inspirational person, he truly is. Anything and everything out his mouth is something to learn from.”

Connor has released a slew of mixtapes and music that included 2011’s Salvation and culminated in his retail debut this past July with Unconscious State. Unconscious State charted at number 35 on Billboard’s Top 200 the second week after its release.

G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T delivers his latest visual and new single with “King Push” which will be featured on the rapper’s forthcoming My Name Is My Name LP set to drop on October 8.  Over hard-hitting drums and a haunting vocal sample, the Virginia native proclaims himself “King Push” and kicks his signature coke rhymes fans have come to love.  In the spirit of keeping things simple, Pusha continues his minimal approach as the music video sports the Clipse member performing to the camera against a plain black and white backdrop..
