Shawty Lo Signs to G-Unit, Drops Mixtape to Celebrate

Shawty Lo joins the G-Unit family and drops a new mixtape to celebrate.

In the wake of crunk music falling off most Hip Hop listeners' radars, former D4L frontman Shawty Lo proved to be one of the few to survive his genre's demise with his hit 2008 single "Dey Know." Now, Shawty Lo is taking his talents up north by signing to 50 Cent's G-Unit imprint.

According to AllHipHop, who spoke to Shawty Lo earlier this day, the ATL rapper is excited about his new label situation. He said it's a thrill to have someone as on top of his business as 50 Cent in his corner.

"It's like a new beginning and all I needed was someone behind me," he explained. "50 [Cent] is a marketing genius and I got my new thing. D4L and G-Unit...we going to be working the south and the rest of the world if need be...my new situation with G-Unit was just solidified and I got off the phone with 50 yesterday, I just signed a really large deal."

In order to celebrate his move to the Unit, Shawty Lo decided to unleash his latest mixtape B.H.F. (Bankhead Forever), hosted by DJ Greg Street. Shawty Lo broke some of the tape's collaborations and said that he will have an album hitting stores soon.

"This is a special project for me," he said. "I worked real hard on making this one of the best mixtapes I've put out to date...This is like something before the album...[The song] 'Haters' got 50, [Tony] Yayo and Roscoe Dash, my single 'Pocahontas' has Twista and Wale, 'I Know', I got Future on there, the whole mixtape jammin’. If I’m working on a song, it may be on a mixtape, but it could for a album."

Shawty Lo isn't the only artist working with 50 Cent as of late. DJ Whoo Kid recently confirmed that MTV's "The Jersey Shore" star DJ Paulie D is somehow involved with 50's G Note subsidiary.

    50 fucked up. damn dude got money but when you really analyze dude he seems like an idiot. - lost all that weight for a straight to DVD movie that undoubtedly sucks - signed shawty lo shawty lo ain't makin no comeback. he was a ringtone rapper at best and his line is dead. this will never work, good luck 50. 50 still a real nigga but he looking lost, he has no feel on things, just forcing move after move. make an album you had fun recording 50, then worry bout signing niggas on dead ass g-unit records.

  • papabearATL

    I hope all these cats signing new deals have good lawyers and scrubbed their contracts well. Who is the last G-Unit artist to get paid, besides 50? Who is the last roc a fella artist to get paid, besides Jay-Z and Kanye? Who on the YMCMB collects checks besides Wayne and Baby? Don't be the next Young Buck, Shawty Lo...

    u guys have the record label and the group confused i'm assuming by all these lame comments.

  • ohhnoo

    gunit sucks now. ross ended 50s career. time for 50 cent and gunit to retire. shawty lo is garbage and ti damn near destroyed his career as well. banks should leave and sign with def jam or maybach music

  • Osiel Salas

    That remark wouldve sounded absurd back in 2005 but judging by how 50 cent does things now I would not be surprised if he did. It's sad but 50 cent has turned into a joke

    It's funny how far G-Unit has fallen, 50 you're irrelevant and you went pop no one respects your shit and with signing Shawty Lo it's the final nail in his career.

  • popatop

    Shawty was part of snap music, he didnt have anything to do with crunk music. DX get your shit right.

    Damn, 50 really fucked up now... smh :(

  • Anonymous

    Ahahahhaha, he's talking like G-Unit is the most successful label out there. Dude, wake up, it ain't 2005 no more.

  • haha

    'i just signed a really large deal' haha what $100,000 dollar deal?? haha dude is a joke on a joke label

    • NoahP

      Lol he's right tho. Obviously we are all broke as shit on this sight, but it's definitely fronting if he says it's a "big deal" because.. well, it's not 1999 anymore. So yea we are broke, and yea that is a dumb fuck thing to say. With that said, if he could get a hit record he'll make 50 and himself some money - Chances of that, slim.

    • Anonymous

      I read the article 3 times. It does not mention nothing about a "$100,000 dollar deal." Haha made that number up to criticize Shawty Low!!! That dude is hating.

    • Not An Idiot

      What does haha's bank account have to do with his (presumed) knowledge of record contracts?

    • BC's Panache

      Let's be serious... you don't even have 100 large. So who are you to say this is a small deal??

  • Tony Viera

    excellent shawty the new G-unit Soldier!! GGGG-Unit!!

  • DL Dub

    Really? Out with young buck and in with shawty lo? I wouldnt rep g-unit if i had it tatooed on my back. Shawty is the Lowest on the rungs of hip hop. He's awful. The ONLY reason his song was even a hit was because everyone else rapped circles around him on his own beat
