BG In Talks With G-Unit, Cuban Link False

G-Unit Records may

be signing Southern staple B.G. to its burgeoning roster of artists.

While the deal is not completed, Sha-Money XL, a G-Unit executive

who helps manage 50 Cent, confirmed that B.G. is in talks with company brass.

"We are in talks with B.G. to sign him to Buck’s G-Unit

South label," Sha-Money XL told

B.G. released his first album True Story in 1993 at

the age of 11, helping successfully launch the Cash Money label into Hip-Hop


B.G.’s major label debut Chopper City in the Ghetto debuted

at #9 on the Billboard charts, fueled by the hit single "Bling, Bling."

In 2001, B.G. announced he had severed his ties with Cash Money

Records to launch his own label, Chopper City Records.

Since, the rapper has released several independent albums, the

most recent being Heart Of Tha Streetz Vol. 1.

Sha-Money XL also dispelled the rumor that a Fat Joe foe was

joining the label.

Despite the gossip, former Terror Squad member Cuban Link is

not signing with 50’s growing company. "It’s not true, we are not signing

Cuban Link," Sha-Money XL said.

A number of published reports on the internet claimed 50 Cent

signed Cuban Link to the G-Unit Records imprint.

Both 50 Cent and Cuban Link have verbally sparred with Terror

Squad front man, Fat Joe.

In recent months,

G-Unit has arranged business deals with Lil’ Jon, Lil’ Scrappy, Ma$e Spider

Loc, Mobb Deep and M.O.P.
