Soulja Boy has added a new artist to his Stacks on Deck Entertainment record label. The “She Make It Clap” emcee took to Instagram on Tuesday night (Aug. 17) to announce that he has signed Chet Hanks to the SODMG roster.

“It’s going down man,” Soulja said in the short video. “Chet Hanks man, my new artist signed to SODMG Records as the first rapper signed this year. It’s going down. Big Draco, we about to make history, you know what I’m saying? SODMG. Album on the way, just wait.”

Chet, who is the son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, also shared the news on his Instagram account.

“JUST SIGNED TO #SODMG,” he captioned the post. “JUST WAIT TO SEE WHAT WE DO NEXT @souljaboy @sodmgrecordsllc U DIGG. @stephenbelafonte1.”

Back in April, Chet, who recently changed his name to Chet Hanx, dropped his debut single “White Boy Summer.” The official music video for the song has garnered over 900,000 views on YouTube. In June, he dropped his follow-up single “DAMN!”

Earlier this month, Chet made headlines after going on an anti-vaccine rant on social media, although both of his parents contracted Coronavirus last year. “I’ve been kinda on the fence about this for a while,” he said in an Instagram video. “That’s why I’ve never spoke on it, but with the amount of people I know recently that have gotten COVID and with the numbers rising, I think it’s important for me to say I got the vaccine. I think everybody should. I think it’s really important that we all do this just as citizens, as Americans. We have to look after each other and get this shit under control, guys.”

After shifting his tone, he said, “Psych, bitch! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I’ve never had COVID. You ain’t sticking me with that muthafucking needle. It’s the muthafucking flu. Get over it. ... Why are we working around y’all? If you’re in danger, stay your ass inside. I’m tired of wearing the muthafucking mask.”
