(AllHipHop Rumors) Kidd Kidd has been one of Hip-Hop’s most underrated acts for well over a decade. The rapper has been signed to G-Unit Records since 2011.
This follows a stint for the rapper with Young Money Entertainment. Being a New Orleans native, his work with the Louisiana based company made the most sense until they severed ties.
Kidd Kidd was one of the first artists signed to Young Money alongside T-Streets and Gudda Gudda as the group Squad Up. He even appeared on Lil Wayne’s hit single “Mrs. Officer” in 2008.
“Mrs. Officer” was a single from Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter 3 album and also featured singer Bobby Valentino. However, Kidd Kidd left the company after not appearing in the video for the single.
Kidd Kidd was shot six times after meeting with 50 Cent, but 50 would still sign the rapper a month later after sympathizing with the situation. Kidd Kidd would be featured on a number of projects after signing with the label.
The biggest project would be 50 Cent’s 2014 Animal Ambition album. Recently, Kidd Kidd sat down for an interview with Hot 97 and talked about leaving G-Unit.
“There’s no trouble…no beef or nothing like that,” said Kidd Kidd. “I was working. I was getting my music together. Like I said. I was getting my personal business everything together. A lot of personal things I had to go through.,” he continued.
Kidd Kidd said he now feels ready to work once again and is business working on his independent releases.
