He’s Going Back To The Bank: Shawty Lo Signed A $10 Million Deal With 50’s Cent G-Unit Label

I previous reported that Southern rapper Shawty Lo signed a deal with 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records. Lo and 50 recently stopped by Atlanta’s  Hot 107.9 to talk about their new partnership and Lo’s new $10 Million venture.

My vision, man, is to give it 100 percent, whatever we do,” Shawty said. “I really signed with 50 because I feel like 50’s a marketing genius. I’ve been watching him since he first came into the game before I even thought about becoming a rapper. But to make it short and simple, I signed a big deal with 50, $10 million deal. If that ain’t enough, he’s sitting right beside me, so let’s get it…A lot of artists come into the game and they don’t know the business side. So basically, I was one of those artists at first in the beginning. In the music business, it’s really 20 percent music and 80 percent business. If you learn the business, you can really go a long way.” (Hot 107.9)

50 said there was also a private investor who helped put up some of the money.

What Shawty didn’t know is it’s a fund with private investors,” 50 added. “That money is theirs. I didn’t actually give him the $10 million. He has a chunk of that but the rest of the money is there so he can actually launch the projects that come through. He can choose things out of the South and I’ll choose things from different territories…When he came to the actual office and played the music that he had for his new album, I knew that I was impressed.” (Hot 107.9)

New Deal: Lil Kim Signs To 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records [With Video]

Music mogul 50 Cent is trying to bring back G-Unit Records. Last week, I reported that 50 signed Atlanta’s rapper Shawty Lo to his imprint. Last night,  Hot 107.9 in ATL celebrated their 16th Birthday Bash. Shawty Lo performed and during his set, he brought out Lil Kim. The Queen Bee performed her verses to “All About The Benjamins” and “Get Money.”

Right before getting into “Get Money,” Kim stopped and announced that she’s with G-Unit and they have a few surprises. Last year, I reported that Lil Kim signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation but the deal was never finalized because they couldn’t come to a contractual agreement. Peep the video below; around the 6:20 mark Lil Kim speaks on her new deal with G-Unit.

I Don Bleek was the first Hip-Hop Journalist/Blogger to report that Lil Kim is with 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records. If you’re going to post or quote my story, please give me the proper credit. In the past, others used my work without giving me credit.

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
