Young Buck & 50 Launch G Unit South

Posted By on June 26, 2004

G-Unit’s Young Buck and 50 Cent have elected to jumpstart G-Unit South Records in an effort to expand the gangstas’ business properties below the Mason Dixon line.

For Buck, the move is as much personal as it is business, he said.

“I want to see more artists from where I am from get into the game as well as other artists that just deserve something else, so you will hear something from G-Unit South Records,” Buck revealed to AllHipHop.com. “That’s officially 50 Cent and Young Buck. Its going to be coming to a hood near you. That’s real.”

Buck said that the label was something the two were developing because their plans for it went beyond a logo deal, where a major label markets and distributes the releases- and owns the masters- in return for slapping the logo on the album artwork.

“The goals would be to sell units and to establish myself as a company for the long-term business, not one of them cats that just comes and go,” Buck said. “I want longevity. I love the music before the money so I got a real heart for the shitt.”
