After 50 Cent was dropped by Columbia Records, in 2000, he decided to go into business with himself. The first thing 50 Cent needed was his own record label. He teamed up with Sha Money XL and they made this happen. The early years of G-Unit, including the years with Interscope Records, consisted of Sha Money handling the business aspect.
However, in 2008, Sha Money XL decided it was time for him to leave the label he helped to build. It did not take long for the Queens native to land back on his feet. Quickly, Sha Money XL landed himself a job with Def Jam. Aside from working for Def Jam, he was the head of his own management company. In 2009, Sha Money tried to sign G-Unit to Def Jam.
Upon landing with Def Jam, Sha Money XL let it be known he had no issues with DJ Khaled and Rick Ross, at the time two of G-Unit's biggest rivals. Sha Money XL has stated, numerous times, he is a businessman and he has no time for beef. Recently, the acclaimed executive spoke on the relationship with former G-Unit member, Game. While still serving as Young Buck's manager, Sha Money XL said he would not mind working with Game again. In an odd turn of events, Game is actually more popular than G-Unit and 50 Cent.
Tony Yayo was unable to forgive Game for turning against G-Unit. Now, Yayo is upset at Sha Money XL for saying he could work with Game after Game said "fuck G-Unit." Tony Yayo questions how someone so close to G-Unit could work with someone who could say something like that. But, Sha Money XL has made it clear he is primarily about business.
