50 Cent Explains Shawty Lo Deal

When it was announced that Shawty Lo signed to G-Unit Records two weeks ago, it left many scratching their heads. This morning, Fif turned to his Twitter account to provide clarity regarding the signing.

Announcement: I have a vision for the music business I worked on this idea for some time now its called 50’s new 50/50.

@thatsshawtylo Is the first to sign the deal. He is the head of his own label D4L records and is now being powered by G-unit. We provide a over head. For @thatsshwatylo co. After recouping promo a recording coast which is fairly low he splits all income from records 50/50 no 360 . @thatsshawtylo has signed the perfect deal for a hustler. Now watch his BANK HEAD GRIND PAY OFF.

@thatsshawtylo is signing new artist to D4L records hit him up get your music to him now. Who U no puts U on what U no determines if U stay.

  • INFO….

    “I had a couple of meetings with a lot of labels but when I sat down with 50… The vibe was so good I just signed by the X,”

    “I didn’t sign as an artist, my labels is D4L/G-Unit”

    “I am Atlanta. My life story is so real — 28 arrests, 4 convictions. And for me to be here, to change a negative to a positive and to tell my story, it is what it is,” he said….

  • The Hater

    Cool. ^ but I just hate when a nigga think gettin knocked a bunch of times makes him g, a lot of dumb niggas get knocked 40 times, it does not certify anything but stupidity.

  • Soul_Assasin

    @The hater, agree! That’s the worst hood mentality since “stop snitching.” Look at lil boosie and T.I. Dumd ass, they think cause they did time, that’s going to boost there record sells.

  • Giant Dick

    @The Hater u don’t understand, itz not his troubles he’s glorifyin, itz how he turned it around

  • D-Boy

  • AnuKiNSkywalker

  • This Nigga

    @donn your joking right? My 12 year old brother knows what a 360 deal is. not to mention anyone that has a computer and knows how to use google. lmao it goes without saying. stop talkin out ur ass

  • bylaw99

    Ya’ll dont see the big picture here, who had the balls to go against the “King of The South” …shawty Lo, 50s aligning himself with a self made street cat from the south who’s as authentic as him and are setting up shop. Shawty got respect in the south, 50 needs the south so why not partner up with Shawty. Its a big music deal and watch 50 get someone from the westcoast who’s big. He’s not thinking as an artist he’s thinking as a CEO.

  • Hip Hop Head

    This is the way a real hustler should do it, I swear I thought Master P was gonna do this exact thing back in his heyday but the nigga wanted to go to the NBA & be Kobe. These major’s are lucky I never wanted to be in the music industry & deal w/ the bullshit cuz I would be fucking these labels from every angle.

    #HipHopWontDie #EVER

  • Da Truthhhhhhhhh!! Hurts!!

    Interscoper/G-unit/ShawtyLo=Slave game for aritst at the bottom of the deal which is shawty lo . PPL dont understand the industry is hurting so bad that major deals are extinct to a point you have no choice but to go indepent, You have to do all the work not just writing raps, all artist you think is hot who is signed into a label are damn near broke but they make it seem like they ballin. 50 has money by doing all the business aspects of the rap game . J cole and Jay elect and them dudes under ppl like jay, are not gonna make no dough, Look at P diddy , would P diddy would be as big as he is now if BIG wans’t dead? Look at Rakim he has no rights to his music . Dont believe everything you hear, on rick ross bday he did not throw a million dollars in king of diamonds it was 20 k. Name 1 artist besides Kanye that made it big through jay-z, look at young buck tony yayo and loyd banks , 50 is holing them down ,buck spent his money on some dumb shit. Corporate Success Less cost More profit .

  • COLD BLOOD

    50 CENT’S MUSIC IS AVERAGE, BUT HE IS A SMART BUSINESSMAN, AND REALER THAN RICK ROSS, LIL WAYNE AND GAME!

    YOU CAN HATE ME NOW!

  • Codeen

    @bylaw99

    You clearly aren’t from the south cause hardly ANYBODY is bumpin shawty lo anymore. T.I destroyed the man’s carrer in 08. He’s been irrelevant ever since.

  • Jaymalls

    Nobody is denying 50 is smart but come on… this is not that crazy or uncommon of a deal. 50 is just taking less in hopes that it would encourage artists and their entities to push more on their own without crazy major label support (Investment).

  • Converse

    @Black777 yeah I feel ya cant hate on that. anyway ?shawty lo lost the beef against t.i dude is irrevelent now. his time came and gone

    I brought ?units in the city in ’08 it was cheezy but it had some dope tracks on their also

  • Ben

    True hvstler my nigga.

  • Rico

    50’s a smart cat but he twitters like a retarded kid. Spell shit right nigga.
    “No or know?”

  • THEDON

    damn rico what the fuck are you a english professor…Okay i get it..your dumb ass on rapradar posting on niggas grammar….shoot your self

  • sway-z

    Say what you want about the nigga, but business-wise, 50’s never done anybody dirty, not even Buck. That nigga stepped way out of line numerous times, but he still made over a million and still got 50 to pay his taxes, lol, Buck just fucked up by not paying him back. I don’t care if your best friend was rich, I’d bet my life most of them probably wouldn’t pay your taxes.

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    Rico if U have issues with FIF about his spelling THEN your going to have nightmares about BIRDMAN’s spelling.

  • Mike

    @sway-z and that’s Fif’s biggest atribute in the world of music and business.. You know that if you get down with dude and play your position the correct way you eat.. Everybody eats with dude.. That is why he will always be around.. Super rich people who help others get rich never get left behind..

  • Da Truthhhhhhhhh!! Hurts!!

    @mike you cant tell that to some ppl , especially when a nigga be treating money like GOD. For ppl that has been poor most of they life , its real hard to change from being in the projects then the next day the same dude ats a polo match. Some ppl have diffrent agendas about becoming rich or wealthy , I learned to be black and wanting to be wealthy you have to alot of ass to be excepted by high class culture.

  • Da Truthhhhhhhhh!! Hurts!!

    kiss alot of ass*

  • mac DIESEL

    TRANSLATION:

    @ Bylaw99

    “Ya’ll dont see the big picture here, who had the balls to go against the “King of The South…”

    Yeah, but Lo LOST that battle. I mean, it wasn’t even close. Tip dropped “Whats Up Whats Hapnin” and KILLED that beef. But besides that, agree, since that’s been rumored to happen for the longest.

    Hope it doesn’t flop or disappear in presence like “Bad Boy South” did…

    50’s wack, this deal will probably fail (no hate tho)
    follow me on twitter @rcbproductions for music & beats

  • Mega

    50 Cent is so LAME. lol. He signed Pauly D and now Shawty Lo??? All the talk of him being a smart businessman makes me laugh because these two guys are pathetic. G-Unit isn’t even relevant anymore. Eminem made an album with Royce that did well..now 50 is jealous as hell. lol. Eminem keeps turning down 50’s request to do a joint album. LMAO. 50 Cent SUCKS. bottom line.
