Joe Budden and Saigon have found a new home, E1 (formally Koch). Yesterday (August 18th) Amalgam Digital announced a new deal which will allow both artists to release their upcoming prodjects on the label. First up will be Saigon with his upcoming "Warning Shots 2" which is set to drop in about a month while Joe Budden's album will follow.
E1 Music, formerly known as Koch Records, signed the deal with online label and promotional company Amalgam Digital to release new studio and catalog albums by hip-hop artists, like Saigon and Joe Budden as we mentioned. The first release under the new deal will be Saigon's Warning Shots 2, slated for a September 29th, 2009 street date. A new studio album by Joe Budden is tentatively scheduled for release in October 2009. Budden's Amalgam debut was Padded Room, released earlier this year, which sold 28,000 copies. Saigon, who was signed to Atlantic Records but never released an album through the label, released Warning Shots last year through Amalgam, selling 21,000 units.
