Default Rakim To Join G-Unit Records

Quote:


I guess Rakim may prove that after the aftermath, there is still something after that.

Ever since the rapper left the Aftermath label in the summer of 2003, he seems to have struggled to find a home. After hearing about numerous offers from a number of recording labels, nothing was ever confirmed, but it seems as if 50's G-Unit may seal the deal with his one time idol as his artist.

This may not be a surprise as 50 Cent has already acquired established artists on his roster such as Mobb Deep, MOP, and was trying to acquire Mase before things with P Diddy went sour. In addition, it was rumored last year that the G-Unit general even tried to add the late Tupac Shakur's catalog onto his roster, promising to boost sales and bring better light to late rapper's posthumous remains.

If true, 50 Cent may be closer to sealing the deal than we think as the God MC performed for the G-Unit line on BET's Rip The Runway show.

If anything is ever confirmed, it will be interesting to see the reaction of Rakim followers as many established artists that have joined G-Unit Records such as Mobb Deep have been chastised and abandoned by some of their loyal fanbase for making the move.

I will be shocked if this happens.

But with G-Unit? The God could do better than that, but unfortunately for many, he's gotta make the best move for his career. He could actually teach a thing or two to some of those dudes.

****kkk T.I. with his tired ass flow.

Rakim signing is a good look for G-unit. 50 needs to drop yayo-spider loc-hotrod, mase.... all them waste dudes. If he wants to keep yayo, let him work behind the scenes, hes not a rapper.

Drop Olivia too... and stop singing on ur damn hooks, bring back the grimey 50.
