NEW YORK, NY Wednesday May.25.2005 / -- 50 Cent may be adding Mobb Deep and M.O.P to the artist roster for G-Unit Records

In an interview with MTV, 50 says he's "very close" to signing the two hip-hop acts. "Creatively, there are certain artists out there I respect. I've been listening to their music for a long time. I wanna work with them" says 50. "I want to be able to put my full effort into it, but I can't work for it unless it's in both of our best interests, and that's with them being signed to G-Unit as a record company...We've got a chance to go do some exciting things."

Havoc from Mobb Deep had this to say to MTV: "Initially we were gonna sign to Interscope. After a while we saw it best [to sign] with 50 because of the style of music [we do]. We sat down with 50 and he let us know what he could do for us. We're satisfied with the move."
