G-Unit Records Signs With EMI

See, Craig Davis wasn’t completely off his rocker. Today it was announced that G-Unit Records have inked new deal with EMI. As the first order of business, the label plans to distribute Banks’ next album, Hunger For More 2 which drops November 23rd. To hear him tell it, the deal is a breath of fresh air:

“It’s refreshing to see the EMI staff excited about my project, they have the passion and energy I haven’t seen in while”.

Tony Yayo echoes the same sentiment:

“The EMI staff is creative and willing to think outside the box.  They are fans of my music and career.  I’m looking forward to marketing and promoting my upcoming album with them.”

  • YAYO SUCKS

    TONY YAYO SHOULD JUST QUIT. HE MAKES G UNIT LOOK SO SHITTY.
    50 CENT.. NOT AT HIS BEST, BUT HE WAS UP THERE WITH THE BEST AT SOME POINT. HE CAN REGAIN THAT IF HE PUTS EFFORT INTO MUSIC AND NOT INTO JUST MAKING MONEY WITH SHITTY LITTLE MOVIES.
    BANKS IS DOPE. PROBS EVEN BETTER THAN 50. GOT THE LYRICS AND THE FLOW.

    BUT STILL, GOOD LUCK WITH THEM. MUSIC IS MUSIC. PUT HIP HOP ON THE MAP WITH GOOD MUSIC.

    Come on sun, nobody likes your music. EMI is lying to you! Your music is garbage.
    I used to fuck with Yayo back in the day, around 50’s Power of the Dollar album. Dude was nice. Nowadays his raps are garbage. No real subject matter at all. Flow non existent.

  • BDK

  • seemoregan

    @ALLOFYOU

    Four “major labels” dominate recorded music — Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group and EMI — each of which consists of many smaller companies and labels serving different regions and markets.

  • Oj Da Cornball

    there’s something called IP address u coons know nothing about. Big Dung Kaka gets no more attention from me after this very condescending comment to him.
    So Icy, u coon, Kate Perry just had the #1 record in the country for 5 weeks. U mention her like thats abad thing? u coon. And the fact u compared EMI to Koch make me wonder i’m even talking to you.

    SMH
    Koch is E1.
    Kids these day. smh. i blame gucci and wacka. smh

  • Mr. G

  • Oj Da Cornball

    So Icy, ok stop the kiddie stuff already. really

  • JOeyzz

    nobody cares about Yayo
    Support Banks hopefully the people support the good music

  • BK

    Be interesting to see how much attention is given to Banks’ project and whether EMI are willing to stump up the money for decent promo.

  • Da Hater

    Take it easy on the HATE JUICE my brother@AK…To many HATERS on here. CONGRATS to G-UNIT !

  • Nova

    @mackmaine shyt my bad your correct

  • PPL

    Let me break it down for people.

    EMI is part of the Big 4 Record labels that make up the term Major.

    EMI is primarily a UK based record label but also operates in the U.S

    The big 4 labels are
    Universal
    EMI
    Sony BMG (AKA Columbia Records)
    Warner Music Group

    Some of you might be like isn’t def jam and interscope considered a Major, well yes but the parent company is Universal for both those labels just different management.

    So G unit distribution is going from Interscope to EMI, (from universal to EMI Group)

    Now 50 cent still owes interscope another album, I don’t know if that will be original material or a Greatest hit type record.

    As far as the shady/aftermath that was 50 cent’s deal and does not extend to G unit records. I’m not sure though if once interscope contact is fulfilled will 50 still be under shady/aftermath.

    Either way its safe to say he still going to keep Chris Lighty (Violator Mgt) as his manager, so things are still going to run the same just with more support from the back end.

    Budgets, promo, disc’s shipped out, album release dates, music videos etc.

  • Black Shady

    congrats BANKS!

  • So Icy Boi!

    @Million DJ Khaled – All i Do is Win did 1 million and??

  • RECOVERY

    Aslong as they make good music i don’t care which label signs them.

  • Belize

    Since Fif was on absolutely nothing on Recovery and BISD was a flop,
    and because Dre was hardly on Recovery and Detox is never coming out,
    and since Em worked with pop stars and had little Dre on his last album
    (AND MIND YOU, I AM STILL A STAN!!!)
    Aftermath is going down the toilet, if not already flushed.
    WHAT IS THE MUSIC WORLD COMING TO!!!?!!!

  • http://www.kaehock.com KAE Hock

    @DamnDog Jesus and G-Unit dont really go together

  • Poindexter

    50 Cent has one album left with Interscope then he will have to decide on what he does…
    Lloyd Banks’s new album is going to be amazing.. i can feel it..
    After Gun Powder Guru, It seems like Yayo’s next album could be good…

    EMI Music has Snoop Dogg (Priority Records), Ice Cube (Lench Mob/Capitol Records), Cypress Hill (Capitol Records), & More.

    P.S. Everyone Hating on G-Unit are idiots…. and need to go back listenin to they shitty young money bullshit…
