50 Cent Explains Signing Kidd Kidd To G-Unit Records

UPDATE: Fif says that he finds similarities between him and the NoLa artist, the latest addition to his shingle.

In addition to signing Shawty Lo the G-Unit family, 50 Cent is again expanding his roster. According to MTV’s RapFix, Kidd Kidd is the latest to join the team, with Fif breaking the news on the set of Tony Yayo’s upcoming video for “Haters.”

The New Orleans, Louisiana recently released his single “Better Walk” featuring 50 Cent, a cut off his May 2011 release The Reallionaire. He previously explained that Fif supported his music and recently hit up his album release party.

“50 came at me direct and I respect that,” he told SOHH. “It's a respect thing, you feel me? There's not too many real out there that do what they do. He told me when he comes down to New Orleans, he's gonna come and get at me. And that's what happened. He came to the N.O. and got with me.”

UPDATE: While on the set of Tony Yayo's "Haters," 50 explained why he decided to sign Kidd Kidd to G-Unit, explaining that getting dropped from Columbia Records as an upstart parallels the NoLa rapper's trajectory.

"Them boys down in New Orleans, they're active," he told MTV News. "It's a lot goin' on down there, and because I experienced it, I didn't move away from it. I actually ID'd with the situation a little more. He got hit six times, he got a bag on now."

"It's a blessing getting down with Fif. It's real, it's all love," added Kidd. "There ain't too many real people in the industry, period. I've been around a lot, and right now it's time. I never felt like this before."

    Back In 95 when William was doing strip searches on inmates 50 was one of the biggest drug dealers and gangstas in Queens New York Son ran that block. That hole block was his. Niggas used to hustle for son. Everybody used to get money for that nigga. Son was always a big ass boxer nigga. He used to fuck niggas up in the hood. His gun game wasn't crazy. But he used to woop niggas ass. Break niggas jaws. We was all holding him down. Opening doors. This nigga was a fucking boss 4 real. He was a boss. Opening doors and shit. We was his security. When 50 stopped selling drugs. The block became mine. 50 had the block on lock. The hole hood was pumping for 50. If you were selling crack in 94 95 you were pumping for 50. My nigga ain't snitch. He ain't tell. My niggas ain't no rats. I would never run with rats.
