taking charge with a forthcoming album and his record label, Big Gates Records.The
company, which Plies co-owns with his brother, represents another chapter for
the lyricist. He plans on releasing a string of artists on the label, but not
before learning a bit more about the music business. "I’m
that motherf**er who considers myself a realist," Plies told AllHipHop.com.
"I like to make sure all my seeds are planted right and once I get my situation
right I’ll start looking for talent." "I
don’t wanna have n**as signed to me and n**as waiting to come out in two or three
years because I would never be cool with that," Plies said. "I would
never do the misfortunes of locking up motherf***ers and signing them and stringing
them along. I ain’t into that as a business man."As
for his current recording home Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic Records, Plies is adamant
about handling his own business, rather than leave it in the hands of label personnel.
the standpoint of me, I believe in me," Plies said. "I’ve created a
situation that has been unheard of in the streets. For me to be getting $15,000
a show to be doing packed shows and having 2,500 people is an abnormal situation.
This s**t don’t come around every year, so I believe in me."Plies
new untitled album is scheduled to hit stores on Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic in 2007.
