Nevermind all the rumors and speculations, it has been reported that G-Unit is a few steps away from entering an agreement with Def Jam. 50′s business partner, Sha Money XL has been appointed senior VP of A&R at Def Jam Records. Money XL is in the process of bringing G-Unit along with him. For the longest, we been hearing about Def Jam wanting to sign Lloyd Banks. A major announcement should be made soon.
During an interview with MTV, Money XL spoke on wanting the team to ride with him over to Def Jam.
“I spoke to Fif, to his manager Chris Lighty. I would love to see that there,”
He added that this would be perfect timing as the pieces are all falling into place after Banks created the spark through “Beamer, Benz or Bentley”
“Banks has an amazing record right now, independently. If things work out, then yeah, I would love to see that happen. The beef stuff, I’m over. We at a certain point in life where we don’t even need that. We eat that. So I will let them speak for their own, but honestly, I would like to see a company continue to grow. And I think G-Unit is in a position — coming from an independent space — that can continue to do their thing. I would like to provide an opportunity for them to continue to grow.”
