Shawty Lo Hints At Signing With 50 Cent And G-Unit

Now that he's a free agent, D4L's Shawty Lo has his eyes set on becoming the latest member of 50 Cent's G-Unit roster.

50 Cent may be adding another artist to his label after moving the G-Unit imprint to EMI last fall and founding G Note Records for his R&B endeavors. In an interview with VideoCity.tv, Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo said the wheels are in motion for him to move to G-Unit if an agreement can be reached between both sides.

“I sat down with probably about four or five labels,” Shaty 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 made a name for himself as a member of the group D4L. The quartet of rappers saw their stock rise from 2005 through 2006, when their single “Laffy Taffy” reached number one on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 chart. Shawty Lo, D4L’s co-founder and acting CEO, was signed to a solo deal through Asylum/Warner. But he began fielding offers after parting ways with the label. In addition to himself, Shawty Lo says he oversees a sizeable group of artists.

“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.”

    I ain't mad at Shawty Lo for working hard to stay legit out of the street-life and feeding his family and friends! Its soo many negative comments when dude trying to do good things, positive thing with this music thing! F*ck who he signs to, F*ck how many records he sells, he making money the right-way! If you got hate for this or negative words for this kill urself immediately!!! So what if 50 give him a deal with G-Unit Records, its a check for Shawty so he and hs people can eat! Yall bloggers always throwing shade on something when it ain't Jay-z, Kanye, Weezy, Nicki related, it like yall mad when you see somebody other than your favorite rapper make powers moves or big money come-up.

    he looks like a replacement of young buck...maybe the G-unit is missing young buck and they think its about time to have a replacement. .

  • kennyken

    i don't know about this one. shawty is in his own lane far away from g-unit sound. it's hiphop atlanta, and its all good. but hopefully he doesn't change his sound man.

  • hellrazor

    it's official that 50 does not give a shit who he signs, he wants to make a buck. this is low. devastatingly low. shawty lo can't rap FOR SHIT and D4L is utterly garbage (laffy taffy is one of the worst songs ever recorded in human history). "pathetic" would be an improvement for shawty lo. 50 could sign him if he wants but that nigga aint gonna sell as many as 50K.

  • Brandon Epps

    why is this news? i mean lo hasnt been heard from since he dropped whatever that was some centuries ago. moving forward, t.i. was in jail and this fool shawty couldn't make an album? then, you have to look at 50, when has this idiot been relevant in anything? last albums bombed and he went hiding. 50's label is the new KOCH in that you go to 50's label knowing you just signed on to the new graveyard for washed up rappers.
