Exclusive: Shawty Lo Discusses G-Unit Deal, Search For New Acts


(AllHipHop News) Bankhead, Georgia rapper Shawty Lo has landed one of the most high-profile Hip-Hop deals in recent years , after signing with 50 cent’s G-Unit imprint.

Under the terms of the deal, Shawty Lo will release a solo album and G-Unit will also distribute his D4L Records imprint.

Shawty Lo looks at signing with G-Unit as one of best moves for his career in the long run.

“Me and 50 we got something like the same storyline,” Shawty Lo told AllHipHop.com. “I was upcoming and it was so hard. We were raised from struggle and ended up being muscle. That’s what I feel like I am…muscle They say ‘damn Shawty Lo so small,’ this and that, but I always been muscle. I always been like that hard little rock in the hood.”

Shawty Lo also described the type of talent he is looking for, as he continues to build his D4L brand alongside 50 Cent’s G-Unit, in the South.

“What interests me is when an artist gives it his all,” Shawty Lo told AllHipHop.com. “They need to give it 100 percent. You can’t just bring the demo and say ‘listen to this.’ Anyone does that. It’s like the music is the new game. I wanna check out their Internet presence , their performance presence , I wanna see it all.”
