Over the summer, Shawty Lo made headlines for inking a deal with 50 Cent.
“It’s just a big movement and I’m promoting me and and my whole team,” Lo explained in an interview. ” It’s about to be a South take over right here. I had a couple of meetings with a lot of labels but our vibe was just so good and I just signed by the X…But I’m a boss too so I didn’t sign as an artist. It’s D4L/G-Unit. I feel like what he’s bringing to the table my previous label should have done and I just needed a little push behind me.” (Hip Hop Wired)
