Shawty Lo Met With 50 Cent, Hints At Signing With G-Unit

Shawty Lo might be taking his talents to G-Unit. In an interview with VideoCity.TV, the Atlanta native said that he had a meeting with 50 Cent and hinted that he might be signing with the label. Last fall, 50 Cent took the indie route and moved G-Unit Records to EMI. Shawty Lo was a member of D4L, before pursuing his solo career.

I sat down with probably about four or five labels,” Shawty Lo said. “The best situation I think I like is I had a meeting with 50 Cent and G-Unit. I left New York, and we had a good six or seven-hour meeting. I think it went well. I’m just waiting on his attorneys to get with my attorneys to make it concrete.”-Shawty Lo

“I feel like 50 is a hard worker,” Shawty Lo added. “He’s come through so much in the game. I feel like I’m a down South version. I’ve just been working hard…all I need is that machine behind me. Once I get that machine behind me, I don’t think anybody can work as hard as we can.”-Shawty Lo
