“Coach K” Kevin Lee and Pierre “Pee” Thomas are the co-founders of Quality Control and have played a hand in the success of some of the biggest artists in hip-hop today. Together they run both a joint-venture label with Capitol Records as well as “Solid Foundation,” a management company that is home to a star-studded roster that includes Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, and even P&P favorite Twelve’Len.
Now, according to Coach K’s instagram post that you can see at the top of the page, another P&P favorite seems to be joining the Solid Foundation roster. “Welcome to the family,” stated Coach K as he shared a video of Trippie Redd tearing down a live crowd in London. In less than a year Trippie Redd has already worked with stars like Travis Scott and Swae Lee, teased collaborations with Lil Wayne and QC’s own Lil Yachty, and was even rumored to be featured on Drake’s Billboard #1 single “God’s Plan” after a leaked demo and him being spotted in the studio with 40. Drake has already approved of the signing as he was quick to drop a comment on Coach K’s post praising the industry vet:
Coach K and Pee have plenty of experience working with scorching hot acts and turning their buzz into longevity so it’s not hard to see why Trippie would sign to their management company and it will be interesting to see this relationship develop throughout the year.
