Add “headphone deal” to the standard career itinerary of a rapper on the come up, right alongside “debut album,” “sneaker deal” and “clothing line”; and not necessarily in that order. Meek Mill took to Twitter to announce that he scored a headphone deal with Skullcandy.
“Just signed new deal wit skull candy today…time 2 get it!!,” tweeted the “Amen” rapper.
Previously Skullcandy teamed with Roc Nation to create a line of “Aviator” headphones. Not so coincidentally, Roc Nation manages the Philadelphia rapper.
Looking for some irony, though? In a recent photo (see below) that he shared on Twitter, the Maybach Music Group MC is seen in the recording booth rocking a pair of Beats By Dre headphones. Skull Candy, hook up your knew client with some product, stat. Meek Mill’s debut album, Dream & Nightmares, is due in stores October 30th.
