Looks like Fat Trel finally got that major-label deal he’s been hinting about for months. Rick Ross‘ Maybach Music Group announced yesterday that it has inked a deal with the D.C. trap rapper, whom Washington City Profile profiled last year.

D.C.’s classiest strip joint, Stadium Club, will host an official signing and single release party for Trel this Saturday.

On Twitter, Trel seemed elated, thanking fellow D.C. artist and MMG signee Wale for helping him land the deal. His most recent mixtape, SDMG, dropped in August.
