Rising raptress Erica Banks recently sat down with Clinton Spark's Big Win podcast. She said that she turned down recording contracts from Atlantic Records, Capitol Records, and rapper DaBaby's Billion Dollar Baby Entertainment.
"Atlantic was one. Capitol was one, actually, DaBaby the artist the DaBaby, yeah he was the second person to reach out."
However, the "Buss It" star says that her mother talked her out of signing with the fellow rapper prematurely. While Banks was ready to quit her job to join DaBaby, her mother explained that jumping on the first deal that came around was not wise.
She eventually held out and decided to sign with 1501 Certified, the label that birthed Megan Thee Stallion. That deal ultimately led to a major label partnership with Warner Records.
Nevertheless, Banks is appreciative of the "Bop" rapper for the opportunity.
"We love DaBaby. I appreciate him so much. At the same time, he's an artist just like me, you know what I'm saying, so I just had to think about that too."
