YG Entertainment has announced on September 27, “Tablo has signed an exclusive 4-year contract with YG Entertainment and will be dropping his first official solo album on November 1.”
Through this event, Tablo will break out from his 2-year hiatus that occurred when an academic controversy sparked around him. This contract has been known to be a solo contract that doesn’t involve Epik High.
According to YG, the person who had the biggest hand in Tablo’s decision was none other than YG’s actress and Tablo’s wife, Kang Hye Jung. Having stuck with her husband through thick and thin, Kang Hye Jung was the one to introduce Tablo to CEO Yang Hyun Suk.
Tablo has confessed his feelings for the comeback with, “It’s true that I’m still very afraid of standing in front of the public after deserting the stage for almost 2 years. It was hard during that time period, but I don’t have any feelings of resentment directed at anyone whatsoever. This is because I think that everything that has occurred was my fault.”
He then added, “There were a lot of fans who have supported me from unknown places during that time, but instead of saying thank you a thousand times, I want to return the favor by trying a lot harder and producing good music.”
