The "Drip From My Walk" MC seemingly renegotiated his deal with 300 Entertainment, or perhaps signed a new one altogether.

Famous Dex just hopped on Instagram to announce that he signed a $5.6 million deal with 300 Entertainment. Moreover, the record label and entertainment company is or was home to the likes of $NOT, Young Thug, Mary J. Blige, Gunna, Megan Thee Stallion, and many more listed on their website. Furthermore, this news from Dexter comes after his newest single "Where's Dexter" with Rich The Kid and Jay Critch in January of this year. Given that Rich Forever reunion, it seems like the Chicago rapper is amping up for a comeback season.

Another way in which he demonstrated a career change is his rehab stint following his release from jail. Unfortunately, this is the latest development in his turbulent path to fame, which fell victim to a lot of missteps along the way. Between various arrests and well-publicized and apparent substance issues, it's been a rocky road for the 29-year-old. As such, many expressed doubt that he would be able to bounce back. However, that move into rehab happened in September of 2021 according to reports. With the fact he's been lying relatively low since then, many are hopeful that he gets back on the right track, and expressed happiness that this move might achieve that further.

Famous Dex Lands New Label Deal With 300 Entertainment

"5.6m," he captioned his Instagram post with a money bag emoji. "New deal today God is amazing #wavebros #300ent #richforevermusic." However, someone in the comments pointed out that he was with 300 before, with Dex himself even replying with "I'm saying" and some crying-laughing emojis. As such, maybe this is more like a deal renegotiation instead of a new deal altogether. Regardless, it's still likely a positive move for the artist if handled well, as others in the comments pointed out that the label might do him dirty.

Meanwhile, it's also great to see him reconnect with Rich The Kid after they had brief spat around July of 2018. Sure, they've been back on good terms for a while, but it's another thing to see those relationships last in a volatile industry. Considering these tales, hopefully these are all factors that Dexter turns into positive outcomes for his career and life moving forward.
