Irv Gotti is officially back in the game with a new partnership between his Murder Inc. imprint and 300 Entertainment.

The always ecstatic executive made the announcement on his Instagram page.

“F*ck it,” the caption begins. “No need to hold back announcing this sh*t. Let’s get it popping. MURDER INC has formed a Partnership with the guys who I had all my success with. With the guys who believed in me from Day 1. KEVIN LILES AND LYOR COHEN and there 300 Record Label. I’m beyond blessed and excited to be Smashing with my guys. Who truly know me. And understand me. I couldn’t ask for better Partners.”

Indeed, the move reunited him with Liles and Cohen who spearheaded Def Jam Records and enjoyed a fruitful relationship with Murder Inc. during their early 2000s heyday. Gotti also says that longtime Murderers Ja Rule and Blackchild are still on the team as well.

Gotti also introduced the world to Murder Inc.’s newest artists, Washington, D.C. rapper Boogiie Byrd and St. Lous group Fitted Circle.

The new partnership comes just weeks before his new BET show is set to air. Gotti is producing a show called Tales that will feature classic Hip-Hop songs being turned into visual narratives. It debuts on June 27.
