Young Buck Signs Veteran Rapper C-Bo To Ca$hville Records

Rapper Young Buck

continues to expand his Ca$hville record label, having recently signed pioneering

Sacramento, CA rapper, C-Bo. While

terms of the deal are being finalized, C-Bo, real name Shawn Thomas, will be the

first artist to release an album off the Ca$hville label, Young Buck revealed

to“C-Bo is about to f**k the game up,” Young

Buck told “A lot of people already know what's up with `Bo

from an independent standpoint, so I can just put him out and bring him to the

world on a worldwide platform and keep that same independent feel.” Known

as one of the Bay area’s most infamous rhyme bosses, C-Bo has reportedly

sold over 2 million albums independently since 1993.C-Bo

has worked with a number of high profile rappers throughout his career, including

Tupac Shakur, E-40, The Outlawz, Mac Dre, Yukmouth and others. He

has released several critically acclaimed albums including Gas Chamber,

Enemy of the State and what many feel is his most controversial release,

1998's Til My Casket Drops.The

album contained a song titled "Deadly Game" in which C-Bo talked about

shooting a police officer. Officials ruled that the lyrics violated the terms

of C-Bo]s probation and jailed him. The

case was later dismissed. C-Bo

recently drew headlines when his West Coast Mafia imprint released Arizona based

white Hip-Hop group Woodpile, which celebrates "white pride."According

to Young Buck, C-Bo will drop an independent album through a one album deal with

Koch, while a distribution home is negotiated for the Ca$ville imprint. “Warner

Bros. is making big, big, big moves right now toward what I'm doing,” Young

Buck said. "Being that I can take my label outside of Interscope there's

been a lot of labels reaching out to me. I don't know if I want to take it to

Warner Bros. or Atlantic or Def Jam or Universal, I don't know. Everybody's talking

good and at the end of the day I just want the best opportunity.”
