“Smack-URL Battle rapper/rap artist Tsu Surf has got a lot of attention over the past few months. Now its rumored that he was in a meeting with 50 Cent this week to talk signing with G-Unit Records. Surf’s popularity started to rise back in May at his battle with Tay Rock. Drake made an appearance there and told Murda Mook (who was also there) that he had to beat Surf in a battle before he could battle Drake. Fans, The internet, music labels, radio shows and every other outlet started checking out more of Tsu Surf besides his past battles after the Drake co sign.
Surf has two independent albums out already and just this past Friday he dropped another called “Newark”. Since his growing popularity, he was able to get Joe Budden, Jadakiss and Styles P to be apart of the project. As of now “Newark” is number 9 in the top albums on iTunes. The day before the album dropped he was spotted leaving G-Unit’s office in NYC. Through his Instagram, him and his management team posted pics & video clips of them at the office.
If this is true, would that be a good move for Tsu Surf?? Its good he is making the transition from Battle Rapper to Mainstream Rap Artist. His music is getting more attention and he is mentioned with Fetty Wap in being one of the top artists coming out of New Jersey. As for G-Unit, Surf could have a lot of pressure on him to “resurrect” a once prominent force/label in hip hop. Luckily if he does sign, 50 is moving in other business besides music. Surf wont have to worry about being in competition with 50 the CEO or 50 “out shining” him. Also the fans on the web listen to who they want now days and they have more control over the flow than the label execs do.”
