Fresh off Benny the Butcher's appearance on Snoop Dogg's new song "Murder Music" (alongside Jadakiss and Busta Rhymes), Snoop has revealed that he signed Benny to Def Jam.

"I’m on Def Jam Records right," Snoop said on Joe Rogan's podcast. "I’m a creative consultant executive, and just to let you know that it don’t exist no more, I’m going to announce on your show that I just signed Benny The Butcher, and he is one of the hardest rappers up out of Buffalo, New York. So that’s showing that there are no more lines to be crossed. We are doing what we’re supposed to be doing. The butcher’s coming."

Benny also commented on the signing on Instagram, writing:
