WTF# 1 - Fiddy to sign a UK Grime artist?

Post categories:

Mistajam | 15:40 UK time, Wednesday, 8 November 2006

I just got this email. Now either this is some good news that we've been waiting for or someone's doing some very clever PR...

The UK’s first member of G-UNIT

Rumor has it that the international rap super star 50 Cent is in talks with a UK management company to close a deal, which could propel the UK Underground Grime Scene into international orbit.

A representative from within the G-Unit camp is believed to be involved in talks this week regarding the underground Grime star Sniper E. It is claimed that he has court the eye of the hip hop bad boy after a Sniper E mix tape managed to make its way on to Fiddy’s Jet following his recent visit to the UK.

The source tells us that 50 was blown away by the fast tempo rapping and liked Sniper E’s style and is reported to have said;

“English accents are normally whack when it comes to rap, but this boy has got a different type of feel, he’s actually got good line’s and hook’s! Plus this n***a advertises more them me, saying ‘snipere.co.uk’ every 10 seconds - this n***a’s got hustle!”

The mix tape 50 is referring to is most likely Sniper E’s latest release ‘Target Practice’ which is 19 tracks deep and is the 8th mix tape to be released by the artists. The source tells us that Fiddy has been looking for a UK rapper since meeting So Solid’s Asher D who stared in Get Rich or Die Trying and is very excited about being involved in UK Grime Music.

If true, this represents a phenomenal chance for the Underground Grime Scene to gain global exposure and could make Sniper E the UK’s first international Grime star…I’ll keep you posted.

N.B Greenback Management (Sniper E’s management) refused to discuss or release any information concerning a possible deal between the MC and G Unit Records.

    Got the email too, read it, smiled and deleted it. It was so obvious what the writar (ha!) was trying to do. I guess us commenting about it means its working. Thats an old PR trick. "N.B Greenback Management (Sniper E’s management) refused to discuss or release any information concerning a possible deal between the MC and G Unit Records." Classic!
