This past summer G-Unit Records moved out from under the Interscope umbrella and inked a new deal with EMI, which put out Lloyd Banks’ critically-acclaimed A Hunger For More 2 this fall. Now G-Unit is making moves overseas as they’ve signed a deal with Indepedent label the PIAS Group.
“Last year we took the decision to restructure the label and begin to carve out it’s own world-wide distribution, marketing and promotions strategy, said Nikki Martin, Vice President, G-Unit Records & Entertainment. “After signing with EMI for North America we looked at who could help develop the brand in other key territories and we decided to partner with PIAS who shared our vision and passion for the music.”
50 Cent plans on opening an office in the UK for the marketing and distribution deal with PIAS. Veteran DJ Dan Greenpeace will head up the operation for G-Unit Records overseas.
