Shawty Lo Speaks On His New Deal W/G-Unit & What He Brings To The Table "My Life Story Is So Real"


Video After The Jump

The ink has dried on the new contract now Shawty Lo is ready to bring some Bankhead flavor to G-Unit's roster.

"I had a couple of meetings with a lot of labels but when I sat down with 50... The vibe was so good I just signed by the X," Shawty told Hiphopwired. "I didn't sign as an artist, my labels is D4L/G-Unit. I just feel like what he brings to the table, my recent label should have brought to the table. I just needed a push behind me."


Shawty feels like his life story can be an inspiration to others.


"I am Atlanta. My life story is so real -- 28 arrests, 4 convictions. And for me to be here, to change a negative to a positive and to tell my story, it is what it is," he said.

Shawty's G-Unit debut album "Still Got Units" will be in stores later this year.

I respect what you saying Joey. This fake s*** is killen me. Shawty just ain't doen it for me. His story ain't real enough for me to give a f***. His story just sounds like a dumb n**** fucken up to me. I don't need to here no album bout that s***, and thats real. But that hustle part was 100% correct. Your out doing shows regularly if you really tryen to go anywhere. And Cuban link still in the Bronx, holdiing Tony Sunshine and Petey back.

@ Natty Ice King... When I spoke about Cuban Link I didn't Disrespect I simply stated the Facts!!! Cuban had one of the Top co-signs any new Artist could have in PuN, and had a Huge Club Summer Party joint with PuN and the BeatNuts... Hispanics have been the Fastest growing Demographic in the US for the last 10 yrs!!!!! And the N**** cant get signed!! Meanwhile PitBull, and a Mexican N**** named ChinGo Bling done made them a nice lil Mint.. Not to Mention all theses RegeTon Cats making that Guap... I just stated the Facts" NO HUSTLE" I didn't say he couldn't Emcee Natty... @ F*** the World!! Look here B**** N**** my Essay wasn't for DumB M************ like you!! Lol.. It's for Real N***** like me that DONT want to hear No B**** Made Emcees talking about serving drugs, and killing s*** when they whole Swag and story is Fake!!! N**** Mobb Deep is still GUnit, and Joel Ortiz was signed to Dre, and Now Em got him, besides 50 already got a Puerto Rican Fire Spitter named LLoyd Banks on his team!!... So 50 going to Eat with all them dudes... and all you N***** Hating on Shawty better wake up, cause dude could and will get better F****** with GUnit.. If you dont think so go Listen to Game before the Unit, and after they signed him...

I know we live in the age of Youtube, Twitter, and FaceBook, but that doesn't mean that there aren't people like 50 Cent who still pay attention to Who you really are!! The bottom line is that all though there are other Artist in the South, and every where else that are Legitimate Rhyme Spitters, and Emcees... 50 choose to work with an Artist that lived the life he Raps about!!!, and all though I see lots of of comments about him being better off signing A T.I, and or some other Emcees out there that are unsigned... Non of them have any where near the Street Cred or Resume that Shawty has!!! T.I was a Scrubb in the Trap, and never handled more then an ounce if that, and never had a Chopper till he already had made Millions in the Industry!! Every one that is any one in the Atlanta street pharmacy business their knows that!!! And not to make that Street s*** the only point, but the fact is that Dude is loved and Respected all over the South, and when he did put out music he had a few joints on heavy radio rotation Every Where ( They Know!!) Sometimes Men want to work with Real Men!! N***** still talking about Game!! Really? N****'s manager is a Federal Informant, and every one knows it!!! N****'s is talking about Young Buck!! Really?? That's them N***** who never owned a F****** business!! Stupid Mother f****** want to have a walking talking Liability working for them, cause they don't know s*** about business...Wake Up!! This s*** is a business, and in an age when it's so Easy to find out how reel everyone really is it seams that the Hood, and the true fans of that real street s*** forgot the Rules!!! We have Ex C.O's with squeeky clean criminal records selling mad records talking about Hustling and Drugs ( Really? what N**** you know in the hood that been in the game talking Kilo S*** with not 1 charge?? )Yeah that Fat N**** got a Chopper in the car, and he also has a license to carry it, cause he is a Ex CO with a clean record!! Lmao... Kid talking about sign Cuban Link or Tony Sunshine!! Really?? C'mon son Them 2 dudes don't even have a fan base amongst Latin"s!!! They got NO hustle in them.. They are to busy blaming Fat F****** Joe for not getting a deal, but 50 who got Fat Joe losing weight in a box some where should sign them n***** ??? yeah ok .. M************ Wake up, cause this is still the music created by the Streets, and just cause N***** is all over the Internet acting out Dont make them B****** Real, and Streets some how let the Industry take away the Power!!! Stop supporting Fake M************!! I mean we got N***** that been signed and recording since they were 11 running around acting like he is a seasoned Blood Gangbanger, and a bunch of B****** Co-signing that s***... We going to let them folks turn this s*** into some Fake WWE, Monday night Raw s***!! 50 Cent signed a Real N**** that rhymes about Real s*** he did!! Carlos Aka Shawty Lo.. I know!! shout out to Shawty!! Always had that Bond Money on Deck, and the best Lawyer in Atlanta as well...
