G-Unit Records has entered into an exclusive agreement with EMI Label Services in which EMI will distribute and promote releases on the G-Unit roster in North America. EMI will release the Grammy nominated multi-platinum rapper Lloyd Banksâ€™ third solo album â€œH.F.M. 2â€ (Hunger For More 2) on November 23rd, 2010, and Tony Yayoâ€™s as yet untitled sophomore album, which is scheduled for early 2011.
G-Unit, formerly with Interscope Records, is joining a growing number of third party labels and artists to ink deals with EMI Label Services. EMI Label Servicesâ€™ unique approach gives independent artists and labels creative freedom along with access to the expertise, marketing and promotional muscle of a major label.
If this isn’t a sign of the times, I don’t know what is.
