G-Unit leader 50 Cent has revealed signing a "big deal" earlier today and promised to unveil more details surrounding it in the days to come.
Keeping matters brief, 50 broke the news via Twitter Monday evening.
"I did a deal this afternoon its gonna make me a loooot of money! I'll tell u about it later. I'm in a good mood," 50 tweeted Monday night.
"D*mn I spoke to soon man! This funky b*tch just called my phone asking for more money. Child support is enough! Leave me the f*ck alone lol"
"My day went good. Signed a big deal. got my a** licked. Got the strap in the show.Performed in front of 40k ppl n here I am on twitter ok ok"
"I really didn't get my a** licked I was just playing. But I did do a big deal and I'm going to the studio now" (50 Cent's Twitter)
Earlier this summer, G-Unit Records signed a deal with EMI Music.
"We are delighted to join forces with G-Unit and artists who are truly marquee names in hip-hop," EMI Music Vice President Mike Harris recently said in a statement. "G-Unit is a huge force. Lloyd Banks knows how to deliver a lyrical punch and his single has already generated huge anticipation for the album.. Tony Yayo is a totally unique talent, and 'Pass the Patron' already has the hip hop world buzzing about his album coming out next year." (Hip Hop N More)
The deal will see new releases from the Unit's Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks dropped under EMI.
G-Unit, formerly part of the Interscope Records family, has joined forces with the music company. The new deal will exclusively distribute and promote 50 Cent's label under the EMI umbrella. Lloyd Banks' third solo effort, H.F.M. 2 (Hunger for More 2), due November 23, will be the first release to reap the benefits of the new partnership. Yayo's as-yet-untitled sophomore album will follow in early 2011. (Rap-Up)
50 is currently working on a new album with help from producers like Swizz Beatz.
"I met up with him earlier in the day," Swizz explained about slotting studio time with Fif, Mary [J. Blige] and Busta Rhymes on Wednesday. "He's working on some amazing material that we're possibly collaborating on." For the most part, Swizz kept the details of his collabo with 50 on the low: "I don't want to talk too soon or too early, but it's crazy." (MTV)
