Former Murder Inc. singer Lloyd has addressed the rumors of him being next in line to sign with Lil Wayne's record label in light of R&B singer Omarion's recent departure from Young Money.
Speaking with radio personality Jenny Boom Boom, Lloyd said the popular company could possibly be his next home.
"I think that's the question on everyone's mind," Lloyd said about the possibility of signing to Young Money. "No, I wasn't offered a deal, uhm, if anything I think about it because I'm big fans of their work and we all good friends. We've worked [together on songs] a lot in the past, you know, we broke bread together and I think a lot of fans would probably want to see that happen. I just wanna win, I just wanna be successful. I think wherever I go, I'm gonna be successful." ("Jenny Boom Boom")
According to Wayne, he shared different opinions from Omarion regarding their business decisions.
"Uhm, we made different decisions," Weezy explained in an interview with radio personality Tim Westwood. "And time is nothing when you, there's no deadline or nothing like that when you're making decisions on your future, on your career. For a person like me, I don't put no deadline on it because today you can say 'I wanna do this' and tomorrow [or] that night you can say, 'I wanna think it over and do something different.' It is your career, it is your future and it is your life and I respect that and that's all it was. Different decisions was made and I let him make his decision and his decision was to go another route. Yeah. Nah, leaking the records? They leaked the records after that, after the decision. The records leaked after the decision, yeah, so it was nothing to do with the leaking of the records. Dude just made different decisions and went on the road somewhere else." (Tim Westwood TV)
Ex-Murder Inc. rapper Cadillac Tah previously spoke on Lloyd's departure from Irv Gotti.
"I checked out his interview and I think he handled it well," Tah explained in an interview. "If you ask me, he handled it well. He ain't come across bitter, he kept it one hundred to me. Because I kinda felt where he was coming from. I kinda went through the same type of thing. So I kinda felt where he was coming from. Besides, I was around for everything, so I know the stuff he was speaking about, I knew about. So I really seen it first hand, how sh*t was going down. It wasn't right man, it just is what it is. And this ain't me sounding bitter." (All Access DVD)
Lloyd announced his exit from Murder Inc. last month.
"I've made a lot of changes," Lloyd said in an interview. "I'm happy than I've ever been. I'm happy to say I worked out my own release and I am very optimistic about the future. Ever since I was signed, I was dedicated to trying to make good music, something that's worth hearing. And just trying to work with this rubble that I was given and build something out of it -- being the current state of the label when I first arrived. I didn't really have too much to work with...The label itself had no distribution. I was forced to record my own music with my own money with my own friends, while I was still under contract. All I had was me and my management and my friends in Atlanta...It wasn't so much person as it was business. I've learned to separate the two and sometimes in this business there is no friendship, no bottom line. The sad thing is a lot of young guys come into the game very early without knowledge or without a guidance in their lives and they fall victim to the glitz and the glam. I always try to look past that and keep my eyes on the prize which was becoming a great artist and really making music history one way or another." (Lloyd Music TV)
