50 Cent Opens UK Office

50 Cent's G-Unit records is taking a step in the direction of global expansion by partnering with PIAS Entertainment Group and opening a headquarter office in the UK.

"Last year we took the decision to restructure the label and begin to carve out it's own world-wide distribution, marketing and promotions strategy, says Nikki Martin, Vice President, G-Unit Records & Entertainment.

“After signing with EMI for North America we looked at who could help develop the brand in other key territories and we decided to partner with PIAS who shared our vision and passion for the music."

UK music figurehead Dan Greenpeace is heading up the UK/European G-Unit office. Lloyd Banks', The Hunger For More 2' is the first record to be released, and will be officially available across the water March 21.

PIAS is an international licensing, distribution, sales and marketing company founded in 1982, headquartered in Brussels, Belgium.

  • speaking of this ish…

    Umm..people still checking for g-unit...i thought that label was as dead as olivia's career

  • Brooklyn

  • innovatoor09

    Very good business move, being global in business is very important in your positioning in the music business.

    Let me drop some music 1 on 1 for the top two commentors. G-Unit is an independent label who has a major artist in 50 Cent and LLoyd Banks as well as the G-Unit group, having worldwide distribution puts them in a bracket of a DefJam or Interscope. So now he has the same outlets as Jimmy Iovine. He has cut out the middle man so now imagine the artist who will want to have their freedom yet still have major promotion and distribution. Genius! Puff and Jay aint made this kind of move yet but I bet they will be trying now the kid has done it.
