The OTF label was part of French Montana's Coke Boys, and as a result, adopted the nickname 'OTF Coke Boys'. This saw OTF members feature on the subsequent Coke Boys album.[9] The label has since grown to be independent from the Coke Boys imprint and are now signed to Alamo Records and Interscope Records.[10] New OTF Signee Rich Loner Released “First Day Out” under moniker Big Gotti in 2021.
