Rapper Nines inks record deal with XL Recordings

Nines has officially joined XL Recordings roster. The rapper, who was nominated for Best Hip Hop Act at the 2015 MOBO Awards, shared the news of his new deal via social media on Wednesday afternoon (Dec 7). XL Recordings A&R, Caroline Simionescu-Marin, played a major role in Nines’ new deal, revealing that this is her first signing as an A&R at the label. XL Recordings is home to artists Adele, Kaytranada and Radiohead.

Nines’ forthcoming project One Foot Out, a supposed follow-up to his One Foot In mixtape, will most likely mark his first major release under XL, which is slated for release in 2017.
