Philly-based rapper, Gilbere Forte, is the latest artist to join the Epic Records roster, following a signing with Vinny Cha$e.
"[L.A. Reid] and I connected on a very creative level," Forte told Rap-Up.com. "That, to me -- in my heart, I knew that Epic was the place to be."
Gilbere's first single under the Epic deal is the Fiona Apple-sampled "Pray," which dropped last year and is being re-released.
Details about his official album were unknown at press time.
