Toronto Hip-Hop artist Dru Bex has announced that he has chosen not to renew his recording contract with Role Model Records, the label that has been his recording home for the past four years.
In a statement sent to Role Model Records, Dru expressed his decision to leave RMR “is one born from a desire to explore other opportunities” and that he was thankful for all that they “have done for my career while I’ve been an artist” on the label.
His departure from the label is amicable. “It's one of those bitter sweet things,” states Sola Ogunbitan, Role Model Records CEO, “but working with Dru Bex over these past four years has been an amazing journey. Watching him grow and blossom as a recognized artist in CHH while with the label is a testament to any artist that if you have strong work ethic and are willing to take constructive criticism well, then the possibilities are endless. We look forward to what the future holds for our brother and we wish him all the best in his career.”
