While rumors circulated a few weeks ago of Diddy's Bad Boy Records signing him, Vinny Cha$e has officially signed to Epic Records.

According to MTV, the Harlem emcee, Vinny Cha$e, has signed a deal with Epic Records worth a reported 2.5 million earlier Tuesday afternoon. He expressed that it wasn't just the money that made him sign with Epic, but his joint-venture deal, which includes his Cheer$ Club Label, that allows him to retain the rights to his publishing. 

Congratulations go out to Vinny Cha$e and his crew.
