Taylor Gang leader Wiz Khalifa continues to get surrounded by women with large backsides by inking 25 year-old former video vixen-turned-rapper LoLa Monroe to his label.
Breaking the news via an interview with Atlanta radio personality Greg Street, Monroe opened up about her new label situation.
She explained why she decided to sign with the "Black and Yellow" rapper. "Wiz is like a positive free individual that's about his business and that matches everything I've created on my side," she said. "When he reached out, he was like, 'I feel as though our movements represent the same thing, so I want you to rep Taylor Gang.' And I agreed, so it's only right. Plus, out of all the situations that came to me, my business instincts and just the comfort level, I felt it was just the right move with him. He's a stand-up dude and it just felt right." LoLa, who was nominated for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at this year's BET Awards, is prepping her debut album and will drop a new single in November. "It's gon' be crazy." (Rap-Up)
In early 2010, Monroe said she had retired from exotic photo shoots and music videos.
"I'm not doing that anymore," she revealed in an interview. "I'm not doing videos, unless it's a cameo. No magazine shoots, unless it's promoting my music. It helps, kind of, but it also became an obstacle. It helped me brand my name and get my name out there, but at the same time, with the visuals, the sexy pictures, me being known as a model made it hard for people to really take me in as an artist. It's like a gift and a curse." (The Washington Post)
The rapper previously took on comparisons to female emcee Nicki Minaj.
"I don't do the Barbie thing -- that's her thing," LoLa said in an interview. "I really don't agree with it, that's basic. It doesn't make sense to me because first off, you're basically saying I'm jacking somebody who has never been known to have their styleall throughout their career. She's never been set to have her own style. It's always been set to say she's jacking Lil' Kim to Foxy [Brown] and now Lil Wayne. So how can I be jacking somebody or using somebody's style if they never been known to have their own style. That part never made sense. That's one." (All Hip Hop)
LoLa also previously explained why she is often compared to Minaj despite having a different style of music than her.
"She does her own thing and I'm in my own lane, also," LoLa said in an interview earlier this year. "Our music is different, we talk about two different things. So I think it's just the fact that it's us in the game -- it's just a few female rappers in the game right now that are really out there with their music so that plays a major part in the comparison."

Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang is the home of fellow rapper Chevy Woods.
