SoFaygo signs to Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack label
Atlanta-based rapper SoFaygo has officially signed with Travis Scott’s label, Cactus Jack Records. The 19-year-old artist, whose alias is formally stylized as $oFaYgo, is one of the quarantine era’s fresh finds. The rapper/vocalist, known personally as Andre Dontrel Burt, dispatched an all-platform EP in 2020 called Angelic 7. Although the project was removed from SoundCloud, SoFaygo’s melodic hip hop sound picked up widespread recognition. It appears that the young artist hinted at the signing in a tweet published on April 8 that he captioned with a cactus emoji:
SoFaygo’s debut single “KNOCK KNOCK”, released on July 31 of 2019, has accumulated well above 22 million streams on Spotify. Produced by and featuring fellow artist Lil Tecca, “KNOCK KNOCK” put the rising hip hop star on the map. The media platform Genius picked up on Faygo’s promising numbers and recently had him break down the lyrics to his debut single on their widely popular Verified series.
The future looks incredibly bright for Travis’ recent signee. Take a look at SoFaygo’s April 9 appearance on Genius’ artist series below.
