Sigel explained, "I was sought out by Chris Schwartz. He had a situation at EMI and was looking for an artist."
Sigel, a Philadelphia-based rapper also revealed that at first he was adamant about the deal, and revealed, "For me to sign to a major, it's like,'‘For what? I'm too far advanced in my career to go to a 360 deal.'" A 360 deal is when the label shares in an artist's revenue stream, including merch and royalties.
