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.
