Fans of the Outlawz are stirring feverishly with the speculation that Tupacs rebellious protégés have signed to Cash Money Records. But, according to Outlawz rapper E.D.I., the group is still ironing out details and have not officially joined the Cash Money roster.
Honestly, this thing has leaked too early. The deal isnt done yet, E.D.I. told AllHipHop.com yesterday (June 8). I'm getting questions from all over. We are definitely in negotiations and looking forward to nailing this s**t down.
Sources within the group confirmed the signing was official, but E.D.I. said the talk was premature even if it was rooted in fact.
Just off a little bit of talk, they are starting to talk about it on the radio. Its all over the place, he said.
On the groups official website, www.outlawrecordz.com, the general consensus of fans was that getting down with CMR was a good move for the group.
I'm first in line to congratulate them and I'm first in line to cop the album, said Paradox, a fan of the group. Im just happy for them. You know they are already doing ok. They aren't stupid rappers blowing their money.
Additionally, Outlaw Kastro said that the crew wouldnt change their abrasive style regardless of their recording home. Simply, he said. "No need for alarm, ain't nothing changed."
Fans have high hopes for the group if they ink a deal with Cash Money, hoping to see their videos on major outlets.
Should both parties sign on the dotted line, the next release from the group will be titled Ghetto Gospel, which should be released later this year.
We got a lot of work to do and thats that, E.D.I. concluded.
