In late 2009, Scrappy hit up SOHH and talked about partnering with Luda.
"Luda let me do my thing," Scrappy told SOHH. "[DTP manager] Chaka, everybody let me do my thing. They come in where they come in. Where I need them to come in, they come through and do they label thing. But me, I'm me, by myself. I've been doing it by myself -- that was the whole thing with getting off Warner Brothers and not messing with Violator Management, going to get my own management. Nobody sent them to me, somebody to really get my team right...Or I could be like Beanie [Sigel], you know what I'm saying, just go hard on Luda cuz. [laughs] I don't know if I'm gonna win or not...[laughs]." (SOHH)
He previously explained parting ways with ex-label Warner Music.
"Before I even made the move I had just talked to [Warner Music Group CEO] Tom Whalley and told him I need to get off," Scrappy said in an interview. "Because basically, Warner Bros is a rock and roll label. So they didn't really understand what to do with me as of then. Even though I showed them two or three times, this is me Scrappy, this is how I move, young gangsta from Atlanta, I do what I do, try to stay outta trouble but you know how sh*t go. But he believed in me enough, he didn't want to hurt my career, so he let me go, after that I went through a couple of label situations, it wasn't looking too good.I always had this stop-and-go relationship with Chaka and Luda -- That was the best contract I ever signed. Just being a rapper or whatever, that's the best contract I ever signed." (Rolling Out TV)
